Barry Vis ('05)

Barry Viss ('05) uses his physics degree as a Traffic Light Technician in Kansas City, MO. Viss studies how to best time traffic lights to minimize gas usage and traffic congestion. He notes that "through my physics education at Dordt, I learned more than just the facts, figures, and formulas, as important as they are. I developed a deep appreciation for the beauty that underlies God's creation. The skills, and more importantly, the attitudes fostered by Dordt's natural science faculty have and will continue to guide me in my career and life."
