As a citizen of Las Vegas and a sports enthusiast, I would like to thank New Mexico Highlands University, Luna Community College, the East and West school districts, and the sponsors and the people who worked to make the 10th annual All-Star games a success.
The North/South All-Star games in Las Vegas are considered the best in the state by the Coaches Association. In fact, the New Mexico High School Coaches Association honored Las Vegas’ own Connie Trujillo with the Distinguished Service Award, which is given to a person outside the coaching ranks who dedicates his or her time to helping the athletes in the state of New Mexico.
Also, it is important to recognize how important New Mexico Highlands University has been over the years in helping the high schools and citizens with facilities to play football games, the Stu Clark Basketball Tournament, the All-Star games, Senior Olympics, Special Olympics, and many other sports, education and civic activities.
Thank you for a job well done. You bring honor and pride to our community.
