Tribute to Mrs. Saiden -- posted on Wednesday, November 4th


On November 3rd Colegio Jefferson community members paid tribute to our dearly beloved founder, Mrs. Silvia Alvarez de Saiden, for her commitment and dedication to educating generations of students. Mrs. Saiden was one of those very special human beings who inspired everyone around her. A mass was held in her honor along with the unveiling of a butterfly sculpture, "Vuelo Libre", by artist Yuye De Lima, located in our indoor garden, making this a memorable moment as the school choir performed along with our student, Clementina Da Prato, singing a solo and three generations of ex alumni and Ms. Ana Maria, remembering Mrs. Saiden through touching words. -- posted on Wednesday, November 4th
