A 69-year-old woman is expected to soon finish high school.
Student Cecilia Mireya America has studied for the last three years in the Remote High School Education Center affiliated to the Colegio de Bachilleres of Mexicali.
“I thank my teachers for their support,” the student said. “At my age I do this (study) for mere pleasure and personal growth.”
The Colegio de Bachilleres High School System has about 500 senior students in its Mexicali, Tijuana and Ensenada campuses.
The system also has 16 remote high schools that provide education services to close to 200 students. The system plans to open two new campuses.
