Student Spotlight: Ezra Guerrero to represent Honduras in the Dominican Republic
With numerous awards and achievements, both national and international in math, our student Ezra Guerrero (9th grade) is a young man whose talent transcends borders and his most recent achievement only confirms it. After several years of preparation, Ezra has been selected to participate in the Olympiad of Central America and the Caribbean (OMCC) 2019.
Representing Honduras in this distinguished competition, the road to this event began at the Departmental Olympiad of Francisco Morazán in April 2018 where he had outstanding participation that led him to be selected to participate in the Saturday Academy of Young Talents (ASJT). In the academy, they made a series of tests where they qualified to the Honduran Olympiad of Mathematics (OHM) that was held in October 2018 where they won the Gold Medal.
For having obtained this Gold Medal in the OHM he was part of the pre-Olympic team of Honduras where after several months of training and a selective one that was made in Catacamas, he was one of the four chosen to represent Honduras in the Olympiad of Central America and the Caribbean (OMCC) to be held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from June 16 to 22, 2019.
Ezra devotes many hours of study to mathematics and sacrifices much of her free time to training with the pre-Olympic team during the morning and afternoon of Saturdays and on Sunday mornings.
The Mathematical Olympiad of Central America and the Caribbean (OMCC) is a competition between young students from Ibero-American countries in the region, members of the OEI, whose main objective is to stimulate the study of mathematics and the development of talented young people in this science. The competition will consist of two written tests of three problems respectively. Each problem will have a maximum score of seven (7) points. The tests will be carried out on two consecutive days and each one will last four and a half hours.
We share this excellent news with great joy and pride, wishing Ezra success! We congratulate his parents and teachers.
