Meet Jason Stewart and Maria Herrera

Through United TRIBUTE in January, we will be introducing you to our brave Dancing With Our Stars contestants!



Maria Herrera
Texas Woman's University

I have lived in Denton County for...

Since August, but I've been working at the Denton TWU campus since April 2016.

What I like best about our community is...

You never see uptown SMU kids, but most importantly the Denton community is all about welcoming everyone.

My favorite place to hangout is...

Oak St. Drafthouse.

When I'm not at work, I like to…

Travel. Any day off is dedicated to leaving Texas.

When I think about dancing at United TRIBUTE, my biggest fear is…

Blisters.

I would like to say to the person who nominated me to dance…

Thank you! I am having a lot of fun.

To me, LIVE UNITED means…

To always look out for each other.
 

Jason Stewart
Guaranty Bank & Trust

I have lived in Denton County for...

38 years!!!

My favorite place to hangout is...

My garage, East Side, and the Denton Square.

When I'm not at work, I like to…

Hang out with family and friends, watch my boys play sports, and play golf whenever I get the chance.

What I like best about our community is...

The melting pot of people, with the "come as you are" attitude. You can walk into a business and see people in shorts and a t-shirt standing next to someone in a three-piece suit.

When I think about dancing at United TRIBUTE, my biggest fear is…

Tripping over my two left feet.

I would like to say to the person who nominated me to dance…

Thank you, Pat. Your timing was perfect!! ; )

To me, LIVE UNITED means…

Coming together as a united group to help create a stronger community for everyone to enjoy.
