"I have always loved the outdoors and wanted to know what forces shaped the earth around us so I decided to enter into the field of geosciences. In addition to my normal coursework of becoming a geologist, I work as a laboratory technician in the Isotope Geology Laboratory where I am also conducting original research under the mentorship of Dr. Mark Schmitz. It is with my sincere gratitude that I thank you for your continued support of my education and the education of future Boise State University geoscientists." – Travis Leach #boisestate #broncosthankdonors
