A self-described “dinosaur kid,” Marley Yopp is using his degree in anthropology and geology to uncover a bright future. 
Yopp said his interest in geosciences began as a fascination with fossils and expanded as he engaged in outdoor pursuits with his father. 
“We were apart of the National Speleological Society, so we did a bit of caving, which was really fun,” said Yopp. 
Yopp said when he enrolled at Eastern Kentucky University (EKU), he thought he would be a geologist, but after taking an anthropology class taught by Jon Endonino, Yopp became interested in archaeology.
