    Richard moved to Longview in the 4th Grade and was delighted when the hometown paper had a spot for him to move back after college. A 2008 graduate of Longview Christian School and 2012 Graduate of Lee University (Cleveland, Tennessee), Richard honed his craft with internships at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and the Religion News Service (Washington D.C.). He also ran the Lee Clarion, Lee University's student publication and was four-year member of Shenanigans, the school's improvisational comedy troupe.
