New Mexico Highlands University recently announced the hirings of a rodeo coach and a head athletic trainer, and both have already begun work as the fall season quickly approaches.
Jon Peek is the new rodeo mentor, succeeding Danny Garcia. And Yolanda Diaz has taken over head training duties after longtime staffer Liz Sedillo’s departure for a similar post in Alamogordo.
A Pueblo, Colo., native, Peek is a rodeo cowboy and member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, according to an NMHU news release.
