AHS Alumni,
My name is Dan Lucero and I'm a graduate of AHS Class of 1986. I joined the Air Force right out of high school and after 22 years received a hardship assignment to Holloman AFB, Alamogordo to help my Dad care for my terminally ill Mother who passed in 2011. I retired that same year to be close to my Dad and have since settled into a position west of town with the Bureau of Reclamation, Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility. A portion of my responsibilities include community outreach which has me working closely with the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce. I'm currently enrolled in a program sponsored by the Chamber called Leadership Otero. This program provides a behind-the-scenes look at inner workings of the city, county and state government. Also included are nonprofit organizations, public schools & healthcare systems and quality of life issues to name a few. Each Leadership Otero class is tasked with accomplishing a lasting legacy project designed to be recognized community wide in the years to come. As our legacy project, Leadership Otero's Class of 2016 (LO16) has organized an effort to refurbish the entrance to Tiger Stadium.

Carbon dating of the existing arch at the intersection of Tiger Drive and First Street dates back to 1984. Despite weathering years of desert heat and several scrapes from car bumpers and school busses, the WELCOME-TIGER COUNTRY arch has served the Fighting Tigers well for more than 30 years; however, with the beautiful new playing surface and amazing upgrades to Tiger Stadium, it's time to retire the old guard. A heartfelt thank you goes out to the Class of '84 for a job well done!

Currently, the facelift to Tiger Drive is in the planning stages and estimated to cost $10K -$12K. We currently have an architect working pro bono on drawings and build plans for the project. To date, LO16 has raised just over $3K towards the project. LO16s plan is to continue to fundraise, solicit donations from local businesses & community organizations as well as seek out resources in the form of supplies and labor from anyone who wishes to be a part of this effort. Additionally, for bronze, silver, and Black & Gold level donations, included in the build will be personalized masonry bricks commemorating donations and support from individuals, families, civic groups, businesses & organizations. These bricks will be conspicuously integrated into the build to reflect our unending support for our students and the future of our community. If you are interested in supporting our effort to refurbish Tiger Drive please email me at *****@gmail.com

Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Sincerely,
Dan Lucero
Chairman, Leadership Otero 2016 Legacy Project
