    Being actively involved in many leadership roles in his community, Amador Gonzales knows the impact service has on others.

    Gonzales knows what it means to serve, and will continue to do so this year. Gonzales was elected to serve as the 2015-2016 New Mexico FFA District II President/State Vice President in early June during the 87th Annual New Mexico FFA State Convention held in Las Cruces.

    SENIOR LUNCH MENU

  • Rodeo, sometimes called ro-DAY-o by old-timers is coming to town, starting Aug. 1. One of my dictionaries describes a rodeo as “an exhibition of cowboy skills.” Another says it is “a public exhibition of cowboy skills, as bronco riding and calf roping.” I bet Ron and Elaine Querry now there is a lot more to producing a rodeo than roping and riding.
