SHS students get up close with CSU Rams
Twenty-two students from Socorro High School were given box seats and a close-up experience to the Gildan Game New Mexico Bowl on Dec. 21 in Albuquerque. The game was a match-up between the Colorado State University Rams and Washington State University Cougars, the first time the Rams had been in since 2008, and the first appearance for the Cougars since 2003.
Interim Athletic Director Charlie Savedra worked with Jonathan Jaramillo, Managing Partner of the Greater New Mexico General Office for New York Life Insurance Company, to get the seats donated for up to 40 students, coaches and advisors. Students were selected by the order in which they returned permission slips to Coach Savedra. The students who attended were mostly members of the football team, according to Joni Mauldin, one of the trip’s chaperones.
“This was a great experience for the kids,” said Coach Savedra. “It is exciting.”
