While a graduate student at Sam Houston State, Casey enjoyed teaching and working with college students. Once she graduated, she taught high school agriculture courses for 4.5 years but really missed working in higher education. She began seeking a change in career and knew people who loved their jobs at A&M-Commerce. She started her career at A&M-Commerce as a Student Solutions Specialist, then moved to Success Coach, and eventually landed a job that she absolutely adores, the Academic Advisor for the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources”
A Conversation with Casey Richards
What is your favorite thing about A&M-Commerce?
“My favorite things about the environment here are the small-town feel of Commerce and how friendly my CASNR students are. They are always willing to drop by and say hello, hold a door for ANYBODY, and are so smart!”
