These awards honor the best academic records of the children of Civil Guards who reside in Córdoba
The Brotherhood of Friends of the Distinguished Civil Guard Force (HABECU in Spanish) and the Magtel Foundation presented the 2nd Academic Excellence Awards. These awards honor the best primary and secondary education academic records of the children of Civil Guards who reside in the Córdoba province.
The ceremony took place in the Mudéjar Assembly Hall of the rector’s office at the University of Córdoba and was attended by the Córdoba Deputy Government Representative, Juan José Primo Jurado; the Lieutenant Colonel of Command Headquarters, Juan Carretero Lucena; the Vice President of Magtel, Isidro López Magdaleno; and the President of HABECU Córdoba, Antonio Figueras Garrido.
The awards are classified into several categories, based on students’ education levels, and the recipients included three high school graduates, three secondary education students and one primary education student. The top students were given IT equipment from the Magtel Foundation that will help them continue their education.
During the awards ceremony, Isidro López, a Magtel Foundation board member, congratulated the five girls and two boys who were honored for “their hard work and determination in reaching their goals,” and encouraged them “to continue their education so their dreams come true.” The Magtel Foundation also thanked HABECU for the chance to participate in these awards that are aligned with the entity’s values.
Lieutenant Colonel Juan Carretero asked the winners to take note of the advice given by Isidro López as the Vice President of Magtel, one of Córdoba’s leading companies.
The Magtel Foundation sponsors these awards within its partnership agreement with HABECU to carry out social initiatives aimed at improving society and promoting social and occupational integration through training activities, grants, company internships and job offers.
