What Next

After graduation, Richard will be attending Army ROTC Advanced Camp, a month long intensive summer leadership training program and then commission into the US Army as a Second Lieutenant. Following this, he will take the LSAT in September with hopes of going to law school to serve his military commitment as a JAG (Army lawyer). Prior to active duty, he plans to work with a Human Rights Center in South Texas with undocumented migrant communities at the U.S. Mexico border.

Richard, You remain our star, our "little fiery one" and we are so proud of you. With much love, Mom and Dad Micah 6:8
