As someone who grew up from a troubled home, he is continuously grateful to be alive and to see where the adventure of life will take him next. Crookston is where Mendez grew up. As a young man, he decided to travel around the world for a whole decade and spent four years on the island of Crete in Greece. Some of that time traveling was spent in the U.S. Navy as a military police officer. Upon returning home, Mendez decided to attend UMN Crookston to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in law enforcement aviation.
