Cavalier Coaches Rotary

Body
Apparently having three kids under 4, a full-time job, and a home renovation occasionally wears on Charlie Mann for some odd reason. On those wearing days, he and many others tune in to Coach Andy Cavalier’s morning encouragement videos on Instagram to get pumped up. Rotarians were privy to Coach Cav’s infectious positivity when Mann invited Cavalier to give a rundown of COVID in the CISD academic and athletic worlds.

And so the story begins

Body
IN 1888, THE CITIZENS of Canadian lined Main Street to watch and bet on competitions between cowboys in roping and bronc riding for an event that later would be cited as the first rodeo in Hemphill County, and perhaps in Texas. On April 27, 1888, Freeman E. Miller, the editor of the Canadian Crescent newspaper, ran an editorial asking citizens to make plans for big doings on the Fourth of July weekend. While Miller gathered the crowds, the cowboys at the Laurel Leaf Ranch organized the competitors. Thus, the first rodeo was born. The festivities lasted for two days and ended with an all-night dance.
