Paso recognizes the Canada Maya Scholars

Each year Paso recognizes the achievements of the university students in an informal gathering. Most of the graduates and current students were able to attend including the 2 new students just starting their university programs.
Approximately 50 guests enjoyed a variety of Guatemalan food as well as a typical punch and 2 very large valentine cakes.
Roger Pretty organized and hosted the event. He outlined the origins of the program as well as the application process.
