Dear members of the Pan-American School community,


Each year, Pan-American School awards the Mister Scholarship to the student who has consistently demonstrated academic excellence, and a commitment to the Pan-American School values, over the course of their Middle School years with us.  


This scholarship is awarded both in recognition of the student’s prior achievement and in our expectation that they will continue to uphold these high standards throughout High School.  We look to Mister Scholarship recipients to continue to: develop to the full extent their skills and understanding in all areas; lead by example in all that they do; and continue to embody the PAS values throughout their time at Pan-American School.


This year, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Daniela Matamoros Aguilar in Grade 9 has been awarded this important prize.  


On the first day of school, at the Welcome Assembly, we presented Daniela with the award and included her picture in the Mister Scholarship Gallery.  We also shared breakfast with Daniela, her parents and other scholarship students.  We were joined by:


  • Carlos Alejandro González Bachmann, Class of 2023 

  • Mariana Hernández Bueno, Class of 2024, her mother María Consuelo Bueno González,and sisters Manuela Hernández Bueno (Class of 2022), and Valeria Hernández Bueno (Class of 2030)

  • Marianne Weber Arroyo, Class of 2025, and her father Hans Andries Weber

  • Emil Shadid Zumbado, Class of 2026, his mother Karla Zumbado Villalobos and his father don Elías Shadid Lépiz.

  • Ehimmy Rodríguez Chaves, Secondary Principal and  Andrew Wiese, Secondary Vice Principal and MYP Coordinator


I am sure that you will join me in extending our sincerest congratulations to Danielal, and her parents doña Kattia Aguilar Retana and don Ananias Matamoros Carvajal- and to all of our Mister Scholarship recipients and their families as they look to continue to proud tradition of excellence in all that they do in and out of our shared community.


Proud to be PAS,


Alan Wrafter
