This integration of life complements promotes the development of a healthy and strengthened self-esteem; The architect of this impulse is the director Matilde Almodóvar, who was recently awarded the Self-Esteem Award by the Barreto-Osorio Foundation last Monday, January 30, in an activity held at the Mall of San Juan.

The activity that included the participation of one hundred Cadets from Class 23-01, the Color Guard with members of former cadets of the Academy, members of the PR National Guard and government officials, marked the closing of the “Month of Self-Esteem Awareness” in accordance with Law No. 284, which declares January as the month for the organization and celebration of activities consistent with such an important topic.

Mrs. Almodóvar welcomed the recognition that is a sign of the effort and dedication of a large group of professionals led by their high visionary capacity for the benefit of thousands of young people who have passed through the Academy under their direction. To commemorate such important merit, the Foundation, in coordination with the United States Post Office, carried out a pictorial cancellation led by the award-winning Puerto Rican artist David Zayas, marking what will be the beginning of a tradition of annual activities in favor of the promotion of self-esteem in the island's youth.

The Academy has served more than 7,500 young people, transforming lives built on a foundation of self-esteem and comprehensive behavioral development for the benefit of themselves, their families, and ready to integrate as future entrepreneurial professionals into Puerto Rican society.
