CRS to Change the Future “CLEAR GOALS” Eduardo Almario, born in Valledupar but raised in Bosconia, Cesar, is one of many young people who have gained access to a college education thanks to the educational opportunities provided by Drummond. In 2007, when he was in his last year of high school, he was chosen by his school to be one of the scholarship candidates, and that is when his relationship with the company began. He is now 24 years old, and he is in his last semester of industrial engineering at Universidad del Magdalena, in Santa Marta. “I chose this major because I’m really passionate about everything related to improvement processes and mathematics. Plus, with this major I can contribute to the development of my town and my region, using entrepreneurship,” says Eduardo. After receiving the highest score on the ICFES tests at his school and earning excellent grades, he applied to Drummond’s La Loma scholarship program and took second place among all of the candidates, winning one of the scholarships. This young man describes his college experience as simply extraordinary. “I was able, most importantly, to start with some clearly established goals, something I wouldn’t have been able to do without the scholarship,” he adds. Eduardo recently did a 6-month internship in the Production Engineering Department at Drummond, an opportunity for his personal and professional development. In his own words: “Perhaps the most important thing I learned was to increase my work capacity, and I was able to apply many of the things I learned in college. There is no doubt that the company’s practices are the best in the region.” Eduardo is currently looking forward to graduating, and hopes to continue to develop as an excellent professional in order to make a contribution to his region, based on the education he has received. Another of his goals is to continue his involvement with Drummond in return for the aid and support he received during his college years. 16 www.drummondltd.com Education Eduardo did an internship in the Production Engineering Department at Drummond, an opportunity for his personal and professional development.
