On December 13 of 2015, twenty-nine students graduated as the Class of 2015 from the Centro Educativo Mbaracayú. This year’s graduation event was affected by weather conditions and the roads were nearly impossible to traverse, making it difficult for many parents to attend. Despite the weather problems, a simple ceremony was held, which was still emotional and entertaining, with students, teachers and parents offering a toast to the graduates at the end.
One very emotional moment was when Esther Chenguygui, from the Aché community of Arroyo Bandera, was called to accept her degree as technician of environmental sciences. Esther has now become the second woman in her family to finish at the school: her sister as well studied at CEM.
