On behalf of the staff and students at West Las Vegas Middle School, I thank the District Attorney’s office for the interesting and educational presentations on domestic violence they shared with our sixth, seventh, and eighth graders last month. Twice a month, the middle school schedules presentations to help the students become aware and informed of real issues in their lives.
Our thanks to Dorothy Gonzales, DU compliance monitor, Alicia Duran, victim advocate, Donald Sears, assistant district attorney, Rosa Lima, assistant district attorney, and Laine Snow with the Tri-County Family Justice Center, for their realistic portrayal of what domestic violence is and how it can touch all of our lives.
This assistance has enabled our school to accomplish more than it otherwise could have. Thank you for making a positive difference in the lives of our West Las Vegas Middle School students.
On the weekend of Nov. 1- 2, the Las Vegas Cowboys Senior Division Football Team attended the New Mexico YAFL State Tournament in Albuquerque. We thank the following businesses and individuals for their donations: The Bank of Las Vegas, All Terrain Transmission, Spic & Span, Martinez Welding, Direct Home Health Care, Lavern’s Body Shop, L & M Pawn Shop, The Trujillo Agency, Franken Brothers, AFCSME Local 1380, Christine Ludi, The Aragon family, Teresa’s Tamales, Cowboy Kitchen, La Jicarita, MSM REA, Mora Sheriff’s Department, Crystal’s Cafe, and Russell’s in Mora. Special thanks to NM Auto (Lucas Griego) for sponsoring the team in the regular YAFL season.
Las Vegas Cowboys Senior Division consisted of 11 and 12 year olds from both the East and West Las Vegas school districts. The team used the donations to help offset expenses during their stay in Albuquerque. Again, thank you for your support and our generous contributions to the youth of Las Vegas.
