At barely 16yrs, José Vilgué courses junior year of high school in the Los Llanos Day School, and is reason for great pride, not only to his parents but also his teachers and fellow community members in Nuevo Cayacoa, for his merits as a student.
Recently, his parents Victor Vilgué and Maritza Mercedes were invited to a special ceremony in which the educational center recognized José as an Honors student.
The diploma to student merit, which this family exhibits with so much pride, is no casualty. It is the result of years of dedication and commitment. Since José began studying at the age of 4yrs, he has always been very committed to his school duties, as his mother happily reminisces.
José began studying at the Dos Hermanas Primary School, until 4th grade elementary. Then he transferred to Cruce de Cayacoa, where he finishes his elementary education. During the summertime, he coursed seventh grade, which allowed him to advance a year of schooling.
Upon beginning high school, he must transfer Mon-Fri to the San José de los Llanos municipality, some 15 kilometers from Nuevo Cayacoa, which is not an obstacle to keep him from pursuing his interest of attaining proper education.
He is a fan of math, biology, social studies, Spanish literature, and all subjects related to the ars, especially painting. He dreams of becoming an Architect.
Asides his schooling, José takes time to play soccer and basketball, at least twice a week. Even though he loves sports, it is his academic homework that takes priority. Like José, hundreds of children and teens attend the schooling centres in the CAEI sponsored districts, whom aspire to finish high school to then enroll for technical and university studies.
CAEI is a company in the Energy and Industry portfolio of assets administered by VICINI.
