KEVIN DEBAULT

• Name: Kevin DeBault

• Age: 45

• City of residence: Inez

• Current title: Aquatics engineer

• First job: At 16, I had two jobs. I filled in for my friend, throwing the Victoria Advocate, and worked with the county drainage district.

What it taught me: I learned I didn't want to be a paperboy and that I didn't want to do the labor that came with the other job. I enjoy hard work but knew I wanted to do something else. More than anything, it showed me I wanted to get an education.
