The new members of the Board were elected on April 11. A welcoming reception was held on May 3, at which founder Jean Brugger told the new Board members, “Part of my original vision for the Fundación was that the sponsored students would be inspired to transmit the values of education to the next generation. I am thrilled that this dream is being realized with this new Board, and feel confident that the Fundación is in good hands for the future.”
Together with Jean we welcome the new members who will work closely with the staff to further the vision of Fundación A. Jean Brugger.
