Bo White (whom we know at the MCSG) was trying to be a good graduate student in 2008-2009 and found himself conducting research for his Master's degree in Tajikistan. Little did he know he would become somewhat obsessed with this tiny landlocked country. The climber in Bo rejoiced when a Fulbright took him back to the country in 2010 for a year. As a Fulbrighter, Bo worked with a small group of eco-tourism students and aspiring mountain guides at the University of Central Asia, helping them develop mountain guide skills and strategies and generally supporting their efforts to promote eco-tourism in Tajikistan. Bo continues to return to Tajikistan to help promote climbing in the country through the Pamir Alpine Club. Currently, Bo and his wife Molly live in Ann Arbor where he studies at UM Law School and she is a Post-doc at UM Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
