        Testimonial
        Eating healthy can be challenging and not knowing how or what to cook makes it discouraging. Well I invite everyone to come and enjoy our healthy cooking classes given by our own experienced and awesome Chef Jaime Villanueva. The hands on instructions led by Chef Villanueva makes it clear and easy to follow. He not only shows you cutting and cooking techniques for those that do not know how to cook like myself but gives you great tips as well, making it so easy that even I can make something amazingly delicious and healthy. The first scheduled dish that was taught by Chef Villanueva was not only beautifully presented but he made it fun and enjoyable. Marinated chicken breast placed on top of a hot Brussel sprout salad with fingerling potatoes on the side. I don’t like Brussel sprouts but at the end of the class, we got to eat what we prepared and I was sold on the Brussel sprouts!!!, everything was so mouthwatering. Many Thanks to Chef Jaime Villanueva Register for our next class for some fun and delicious meals. Everything is provided, just bring yourself, and be prepared to have fun while you learn to cook healthy meals with Chef Jaime Villanueva. - GV

        Testimonials
        Thank you so much for putting the Awesome Nature Hikes together. I have enjoyed every single hike that I have attended, and I have learned so much about the history of the mountains here in El Paso. The Views on all these trails have been so beautiful and breathtaking. The best part for me in completing a hike is how strong and how accomplished I feel afterwards. I greatly appreciate you all putting these outdoor activities together. Life is better in hiking boots. - C

        I am currently an LPAC Para at Andress High School and have been participating in the morning hikes. I just wanted to let you know that I have really enjoyed taking part in them, was not much of a hiker before, but ever since I started participating in them, I am always looking forward to the next one. It's very nice to get to know different people that are employed in this huge district, as well as a few non-district employees that I would have never known if I didn't take part in the hikes. I plan to continue to take part in the upcoming hikes.
        Thank you so much!! - AA
