Agricultural University Zamorano Celebrates Two Pioneers


      

Tegucigalpa, Honduras, April 05, 2012 -- Leading agricultural university, Zamorano, remembers the role played by two pioneers, Wilson Popenoe and Samuel Zamurray.

Dr. Popenoe’s life and history are closely intertwined with Zamorano. His inventive, energetic and entrepreneurial spirit gave him the tools to implement the philosophy of “Learning by Doing”, which still remains a mainstay of the process of forming of young American leaders at agricultural university Zamorano.

Samuel Zamurray’s admirable philanthropic sense prompted him to create Zamorano, an ambitious project to promote the region’s development by means of technical agricultural education. It was a model of education that combined theoretical and practical studies, principally aimed at young people of scarce resources with a great desire to excel.

The creativity and ingenuity of Wilson Popenoe and Samuel Zemurray, led to their humanitarian vision and helped them determine the requirements for the fundamental structure of the Panamerican Agricultural School.

In early 1943, as Director and also professor, Dr. Popenoe received the first group of 72 students. These would be the first students to implement and validate his novel educational model. The curriculum designed by Dr. Popenoe and his colleagues combined theoretical and practical studies during a period of three years that combined academic studies with intensive field work. Today Zamorano’s curriculum consists of four four-year careers with the same rigorous combination of theory and practice.
