Surgeon Mario Leyba is another Mora native who has done great things with his life.
Mora can be proud of yet another young man who grew up in the Mora Valley, went to school here and recently served as the commencement speaker at his alma mater.
Leyba was the oldest of three children. He has a brother and a sister who both work at the Las Vegas Behavioral Health Institute.
Leyba gets his versatility from his mother, Bernice Leyba.
“She taught me everything I know,” he says.
