In the 1992 hit song, “Get a Haircut,” George Thorogood crows over classic rock chords to “get a real job.”
That song could very well have been written about Larry Henk. At the age of 24, the current VP of Rio Grande Waste Services heard about an open position in the waste industry while at a barber shop.
“The woman asked what am I doing or looking for, a job? I said no. I have one,” Henk recounted. “She goes, ‘well, my husband’s looking for some help.’ I got to talk to him and said okay. And that was Tom Van Weelden.”
