Martin Francisco Grave Berrelleza
Sam and Elizabeth Rainwater have sponsored Martin through college and he is now about to graduate the Technical Institute of Sonora with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. This past summer, to fulfill a professional practicum requirement, Martin gave back to others in need. He worked with a local company to provide electricity to three communities near Alamos, Sonora. The villages are too distant from power stations to have electricity. Martin designed and installed 23 separate solar power installations at a school and private homes. He chose durable systems that are expected to provide power for 25 years. This was not only a rewarding project for Martin, but he was able to practice many technical and communication skills that are essential for a professional mechanical engineer. Congratulations Martin, and thanks Sam and Elizabeth.
