The Entrepreneurial Spirit

Grandfather Fausto Medina was a very successful businessman in the City of Chihuahua and one of the founders of the Chihuahua Rotary Club (Hector Holguin Jr followed in his footsteps as the first Hispanic President of El Paso Rotary Club). Fausto was also the Distributor for Huasteca Petroleum. The photo shows Don Fausto standing in the front car with one of his favorite dogs. Don Fausto was the first person to trade with the Mennonite community of the town of Cuauhtemoc (named after the last AztecEmperor). The Mennonites harvested the best agricultural products, which included the very famous cheese that continues to attract travelers to the State of Chihuahua.
