Juan Garcia is the chairman of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's Go Tejano Committee. With him is Adrian Izaguirre, their promotions coordinator. They are both volunteers because the Houston Rodeo is a non-profit organization whose mission is education and it is entirely run by voelunteers. The Rodeo has given out over 400 Million Dollars in scholarships to Texas students and the Go Tejano Committee donates 20 $20,000 scholarships every year. They are also behind the Go Tejano day which is almost always the most attended day of the Rodeo. This year, they're presenting Los Tigres del Norte. We talk about the Go Tejano's Tamale sale, their Mariachi competition and their other programs which are all designed to help families send children to school.
