E-mail: TEXAS ALPHA 30 UNDER 30 Q: Do you have any career goals that you'd like to accomplish? A: When I think about my goals professionally, I think about the ways that my career can impact those around me in a positive manner. My hometown means a lot to me. Coming from a town of about 800, you tend to become close with the community. Recognizing the impact my immediate community had on my upbringing, I'd be more than excited to pay it forward and give students down the road the tools they need to succeed in life. I'd like to be able to give to my church and school and to play an active role in prepping students in their walk through life. I'm also thankful for the impact of the fraternity and Cowboys, and hope to someday be in a position to mentor younger members. Q: Do you have any career goals that you would like to accomplish? A: I love my analyst team and I take a lot of pride in seeing them develop. JAY TRAPP '13 (Continued from page 4) ZACHARY RABINOVITZ '08 (Continued from page 4) Alumni News Visit Us Online @PKPTexas
