The newly elected President of Guatemala. Jimmy Morales, studied at America Latina School
, one of our long-standing international partners! He and his brother, sons of a widow, were beneficiaries of the school´s scholarship program. America Latina says a big THANK YOU to wonderful and loving donors, whose generosity for so many years has changed lives and the precious land of Guatemala.
Jimmy asked America Latina's founder, Dr Virgilio Zapata, for his blessing since his decision of running. After the result, he called to thank him for the support, prayers and for the school´s contribution to his life
. He asked for even more prayers. He surely is a son of America Latina and their vision since 1954 of forming leaders to serve.
Mr Morales graduated from America Latina in 1986, with a qualification in accountancy. He worked in the accounting department at America Latina for a year after graduation - his first real job!
