Rick worked at Office Depot across from the University while attending Blinn and his first year at A&M. He worked in the technology department, selling and fixing computers and other technology related items. After attending many PAID events and successfully gaining an internship through the Spring PAID career fair, Rick decided he would love to give back to the organization that had helped him so much.
