Ambassador Brownfield Visits

Published in on March 11, 2009

The U.S. Ambassador to Colombia, William R. Brownfield, visited the Marina Orth School to see first hand the progress that the foundation has made with its innovative programs in technology and English. He was greeted in English by seventh grader Yasbledy Acosta before an excited assembly of elementary school students. Sixth grader Julian Ibarra presented him with a traditional Colombian sombrero, and the Ambassador presented the school with a generous donation of educational books. Before leaving, the Ambassador toured every classroom of the school to interact personally with the students and observe how they use the laptops in the classroom. He left feeling that he had seen something truly special and promised to work for more such experiences throughout Colombia.
