Last month, students at St. Catherine of Siena School in Denver were treated with previews of acts for the Jan. 8 Mexican Rodeo Extravaganza, part of the National Western Stock Show.
Horseman Jerry Diaz, known as "El Charro de Corazon," performed rope artistry and taught charro culture; along with Lisa Trujillo, director of the Folklorico Dancers in Denver who performed traditional Mexican dances.
Diaz also spoke to students about American cowboys, the heritage of Mexican cowboys, and life lessons including character, integrity, family and tradition.
