AnnArbor.com interviewed Ford School student Rebecca Lopez Kriss (MPP '11) about her involvement with a local networking group for young professionals, YP Underground. Lopez Kriss, a self-proclaimed "professional volunteer," is actively involved in the local community. In addition to co-founding YP Underground, she has volunteered with the Ann Arbor Arts Center and the Women's Exchange of Washtenaw. Her strong belief in community involvement is one of the reasons she decided to pursue a degree in public policy at the Ford School, hoping to "make cities better places to live."
