Hello! The City of Socorro Community Initiative (CSCI) would like to introduce you to Mr. Emil Chaparro, CSCI Vice Board Chair. As a long-time resident whose family has lived in Socorro for generations, Mr. Chaparro is grateful for the opportunity to serve the community through the CSCI. His passion for our history and culture has driven him to seek ways to empower the community and to preserve its story by honoring the past. As a teacher with a background in archeology and art history, he strives to make connections to the past through the cultural and architectural remains that inform and delight us in the present.
