Tucumcari native John C. Pacheco, my son who lives now in Houston and attends Westside High School, recently won his second state wrestling championship in Austin, Texas.
John will be attending college at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., were he received a nomination as a blue chip athlete and an academic scholar.
He would like to thank his family and friends who have supported him through his high school achievements, especially:
• his parents, myself and Andrea Pacheco of Houston;
• Grandparents Domingo and Viola Pacheco of Tucumcari;
• Grandparents Onfre and Georgia Sanchez of El Paso, Texas;
• and his godparents, Jimmy and Gloria Rivera of Tucumcari.
