Service With A Purpose

Mines alumnus David LaPorte will spend the year combating landslide devastation on Guatemala’s slopes as a Fulbright Scholar. While he is one of over 1,900 US Fulbright Scholars who will address critical challenges abroad, he is the only one to have made the 2,400-mile trek back from the heart of Central America to Austin, Texas, on a 10-speed bike custom built by him and a Guatemalan friend.
