My name is Santino Mendoza and I am a Rocky Ford native! I am currently 17 years old and now a senior in high school. I am passionate about sports and family. I am passionate about the two because they both shaped me into the person I am today; responsible and caring. Those traits can go a long way so I am proud to say I have them both! My hobbies are playing sports and working. They both keep me busy and happy, which is why I enjoy them so much. I would also say I’m pretty successful in sports for the most part. I achieved so many of my goals within my 3 years of high school. On the other hand, work has taught me a lot and it keeps my head on straight. As of now I am currently working for Mike Weber at the Lower Arkansas Valley Water Conservancy District. I enjoy it a lot and I am glad I followed through with the internship!
