2011 graduating class is the first group to have had all their academic courses right at the Marie Poussepin Center (CMP) as part of the IHER system of the country: A methodology that strives to help people learn how to learn by following a work book, listening to a radio program and having a tutor. Previous graduating classes had gone to the public schools during their first years of junior high, however, in February 2007, our young women were able to have more intense and comprehensive formation right at the CMP.
On November 29th 2011 the seven young women had their general exam in which they presented their social service project to a group of four IHER examiners, who came from the main office in Tegucigalpa. The graduating candidates presented their learning experiences in teaching several people the basics of reading, writing and math, as well as their alternative medicine project. They not only did well, but were congratulated for their accomplishments and presentation. They signed their commitment and took the professional oath of putting into practice what they had learned during the previous five years.
On December 12th, feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the official graduation took place within the celebration of the Eucharist. The Dominican Sisters, members of the CMP team who had accompanied their formation, and family members, thanked the Lord with them and celebrated this important step in their lives.
May they live the values learned as they move on to continue their university studies and/or the service to their village communities!
