Richard O. Rue (B.S., Physics, 1961)


After graduation, I moved on to the College of Education for a B.S. in 1962.

After I completed my degree, I moved to China Lake, CA as a physics teacher in the local high school and junior college. The next year I took a position with the Naval Weapons Center as a physicist and continued there until 1968. After teaching and studying for three years with Pacific University College of Optometry in Forest Grove, OR, I graduated with a degree in Optometry in 1971.
