Here is what TJ had to expect during his time in San Antonio, he went through four stages such as Professional Mascot Performer Training where he learned from some of the best and talented entertainers of today.
He built Mascot Character Development which he learned strategies that will help lead TJ and the program to a success.
He also learned how to clean his costume and maintain it. Finally, TJ was taught about Fan Interaction and Crowd Activation, how he could create magical moments and experiences for everyone that he comes in contact with.
Out of 25 other mascots, our very own Tejano Jack won the Top Animation Mascot Award for his overall character and personality as a mascot.
Tejano jack was created to establish a school identity for the community, and a fun way to invite students to get more involved in school events, making them feel proud of their school.
His next adventure will take him to the 2019 National Cheerleading Association College Camp being held in Las Vegas this August where TJ and the EPCC Cheerleaders will go and represent EPCC to defend their title as NCA Junior College Advance Co-ed Camp Champions which they won back in 2018.
