México City — The Civic Committee of Ford and its distributors, celebrated seven students from various Ford public schools, as winners in the 2018 Children's Knowledge Olympiad.
In the annual competition organized by the Secretariat of Public Education, 1000 girls and boys of the sixth grade put their intellectual abilities to the test in a national competition toward continued scholarships for their secondary education. Emilio Isubalew Arellano Navarro, Isaac Ernesto Villalobos Reyes, Alejandro Zamora Navarro, María Fernanda Hernández López, Erandy Itzamara Navarrete Palacios, Jesús Alejandro Hernández Hernández and Hugo Daniel Espino Lujan each received a laptop and their achievement means getting closer to their dreams of being engineers, translators, musicians or whatever profession they would like to pursue, and for us, their achievement brings great pride to Ford Mexico.
Isaac Villalobos took first place at the state level in this year’s Children’s Knowledge Olympiad. “I would like to be a great mechatronic engineer and work with a lot of technology, including robots,” he said.
We understand the importance of education. It is a vital part of transformation and innovation, which contributes to the development of society. Therefore, 52 years ago, together with our network of distributors, we founded the Ford civic committee and distributors, with the primary aim of improving the quality of life in our communities through education.
Five decades later, our efforts have yielded 193 elementary Ford primary schools built and donated throughout Mexico, which serve more than 80,000 children daily. Each year, we host a contest organized by the secretary of public education in which all private, public and rural primary schools in the country participate.
