Ruben started work at Palo Alto College (PAC), October 16, 2004, as a Plumber Apprentice. In 2016, he earned his Journeyman License. His job title then became Plumber Journeyman. This title came with numerous skills including; maintenance of commodes, water heaters, water fountains, natural gas heaters., irrigation sprinklers, clean drains, among other plumbing duties. He was a Licensed Plumber and Licensed as a Backflow Prevention Assembly Tester from the State of Texas. He accomplished so much in the 16 years at PAC.
