School Building 4 is named after Camilo Cienfuegos
This October 26, on the 58th anniversary of the Señor de la Vanguardia (Lord of the Vanguard) last speech in a gathering in front of the Presidential Palace, current Museum of the Revolution, the closing ceremony of the Camilo-Che tribute was held in School Building 4 at the University of Informatics Sciences (UCI).
A simple, but heartfelt homage was made today, as we evoked the memory of the man who became Chief of the Rebel Army Staff, someone who will remain in the history of UCI, as we named the school building after Camilo Cienfuegos.
The gathering was attended by Dr.Sc. Raydel Montesino Perurena, Deputy Rector; Dr.Sc. Ailec Granda Dihigo, Dean of the School of Computational Sciences and Technologies (Citec) and other members of the University Council, accompanied by professors and students of this school.
In her speech, Dr. Granda Dihigo said that they had chosen that name because they wanted the image of Camilo to be present and multipliedto serve as a guide in each scientific event, in our classrooms and workplaces. She added that his example must be a motivation so that everything is done with a transforming and revolutionary spirit.
The meeting culminated with the recitation of the poem Si busca a Camilo, followed by a fragment recorded in the voice of Camilo Cienfuegos as he recited a verse of Mi bandera, by Bonifacio Byrne, and finally the audience could hear Carlos Puebla’s song A Camilo.
