EDINBURG, Texas – Edinburg Chamber of Commerce is going to open mini versions of itself in the city’s four high schools.

Details were announced by the incoming president of the chamber, Mario Lizcano, at a recent mixer.

Lizcano said students that join the junior chamber at their school will get to meet city and business leaders in order to gain a better appreciation of what Edinburg has to offer.

Edinburg Chamber of Commerce is now 97 years old. It recently won a “Chamber of the Year” award from a local newspaper. Lizcano put the success down to the chamber having great staff.

Lizcano is administrator of corporate affairs for DHR Health. Earlier this year he was appointed to the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement by Gov. Abbott.

In a video interview with the Rio Grande Guardian International News Service, Lizcano spoke about his goals as president of the chamber.
