Remembering the first UdG CUC President.

Rector general of the UdeG expresses its condolences to the family!


Students, graduates, parents, university authorities and society in general gathered last Tuesday to pay a tribute to the former director of education, Dr. Armando Bachelor Macias.


Dr. Bachelor Macias, was architect of the Foundation of the Centro Universitario de la Costa (CUCosta) and its first Rector from 1994-1998.


Liliana Bojórquez Martínez, widow of Dr. Bachelor, thanked those present. She said that his best legacy is education. “The teachings given to us, I think that this is his best legacy …” I have a life movie of nearly 24 years with him. Many of you have been in this film, accompanying him and are part of it. Believe me, really, with all my heart, I thank you very much this attention and signs of affection.”

At the end of the tribute, a mass in his honor was held at the Church of our Lady of Guadalupe.
