Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University business students Maria Gavaria, Adrian Martinez and Norberto Flores recently traveled to Mexico City to volunteer as event security for the NFL football game between the Arizona Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers at the Estadio Azteca Stadium.

The students were chosen for their bilingualism and ability to act as translators during the event. They were trained and supervised by a management team from Landmark Event Services.

In addition to translating on behalf of Landmark, they also worked to ensure that only those with the proper clearance were permitted entry into certain areas of the stadium, and to verify the credentials of those seeking entry upon their arrival.

According to chaperones Javier Vasquez and Dr. Diego Hernandez, the experience afforded students the opportunity to gain a real inside view of game operations and security for a major event while also enjoying the linguistics, architecture, customs and cuisine of Mexico.
