Our new high school is almost completely built in the middle of the super-poor community of Armenia Bonito. We are prayerfully going to open the school at the beginning of the school year in February of 2014.
On Tuesday we took a huge step toward making that a reality. After interviewing seven candidates, Mike gave the Director’s job to Melida Padilla. On November 30th Melida will quit her current job as Director of a local high school, and on December 1st she will start as the Director of our High School.
Melida is a 51-year-old resident of Armenia Bonito. She has 14-years experience as the Director of two different high schools. She also has 27 years of teaching experience. She is strong Christian woman with lots of practical experience and a heart for the community.
All we have to do now is figure out how to pay her. Her salary as a fulltime Director and teacher at our school will be $1,500/month. If you would like to help fund Melida’s salary you can make a debit/credit card contribution HERE.
