As a way to give back to El Paso, Lori Briggs, the former figure skating director at the El Paso County Coliseum, created the Rhinos mentoring program ten years ago. Every school year since then, the Rhino organization has sent players to El Paso County schools where they become interactive role models to the students.
Under the title “Skate Mates,” the community education effort has been expanded to more local campuses. Players regularly visit schools and work closely with students on specific subjects, encouraging them to excel inside and outside of the classroom.
