Former PVCC Pitcher is now pitching opportunities for the AZ Diamondbacks
Ruben Rincon credits coach Victor Solis, for helping him to stay the course as he completed his associates degree at PVCC and then went on to pitch as a scholarship athlete at Grand Canyon University. As a current Arizona Diamondbacks employee, Ruben utilizes the skills he obtained in Cariann Powers's public speaking class at PVCC on a daily basis. These speaking skills, coupled with his understanding of the human brain via his favorite course, Psychology 101, are invaluable to Ruben in his current position.
Ruben’s teammates and the memories made whilst playing baseball at PVCC are among the treasured highlights of his time as a Puma student athlete. These lifelong friendships coupled with the strong educational foundation received at PVCC impact his life on a daily basis as he works for the Diamondbacks as a Sales Consultant. Athletics at PVCC and the relationships he developed with Christina Hundley and Coach Solis provided a means for Ruben to meet people, develop his leadership skills and excel academically.
Ruben’s commitment to PVCC has taken a new dimension as he works with Ellen Hedlund to create an event to showcase 30 years of PVCC’s greatness. Ruben looks forward to meeting fellow alumni and is committed to giving back and pursuing opportunities to serve as a role model for others. Whether pitching on the mound as a PVCC Puma or pitching an opportunity to a prospective client, Ruben will go far thanks to the foundation he received at PVCC.
