I chose Ridgewater College (RC) completely at random. I got online to look up colleges in Minnesota due to the close proximity to South Dakota (where I lived at the time). I looked up a few classes, called up the football coach, and within an hour later I applied.
With my time at RC, I developed many relationships and was involved with quite a bit on campus; football, baseball, Student Senate, theatre, and PTK. All of those experiences helped me to become the man that I am today. I went on to Black Hills State University where I double majored and graduated with my BS degree. I then moved to North Dakota and became a Deputy Sheriff. After approximately 1 year and a half of being on patrol I was then promoted to Narcotics Detective assigned to the Northwest Narcotics Task Force working with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI). RC played a vital role in being where I am today and I will forever be grateful for my time there!
