Congratulations Dayanna!

At Dayanna's "Colegio" (High School) she was invited to be part of a special class filled with all scholarship students from various foundations.  These students, as some of the brightest in their grade, have been given the opportunity to participate in "Practicas" or mini internships/practicals in the various subjects throughout the school year.  Although these classes have an extra cost, it is evident in Dayanna's work ethic and her grades that these classes are worth the extra effort.  Dayanna was even 1 of 3 students in this course to get a special certificate for her business practical for her excellent completion of the project.  Congratulations Dayanna!
