Mr. Castillo is originally from Guatemala, Central America. Following his Coady studies in 1963, he returned to Guatemala where he worked diligently for 17 years establishing the vast majority of credit unions, until his family was forced to flee to the United States during the civil war.
This trip to Coady was for their 60th wedding anniversary. Later that day we presented him with a copy of his diploma, which he was forced to leave behind when he fled Guatemala.
