Professor Rosalia Silva Figueira
Speaking of the history of this institution means to speak of the central character in the history of Educandário Juvêncio Earth, its founder, Professor Rosalia Figueira Silveira. A life dedicated to the construction of educational equity. Continuous and arduous work marked by its principles, for his belief and his vision of education.
Let her tell it:
I started with a kindergarten Spinola Fernando Street, where today is the Restaurant Dalva, with only 14 students who were my nephews. The school had boarding. My sisters left the children in my care. The College grew and I had to switch to another space, Rua Ascendino Melo, a house bought by my boyfriend, then my husband, Auto Silveira (...) The College was growing and needed a name. I remembered Juvêncio Earth. A gentleman in Belo Horizonte that was propping up many poor girls and boys to study. He would visit their wards on Thursdays at boarding school, and liked to talk to me. I told him: When I have a small school in Bahia, I'll put your name.
Born July 24, 1890 in Formiga, in the western state of Minas Gerais. His parents, lack of resources, could only give him a primary education. Very young still, and driven to work, soon shows his personal virtues: honesty, punctuality, discipline, work and fulfillment of duties.
After his first job in Santa Luzia, Juvêncio Earth moved to Belo Horizonte and there begins to live a new ideal.
Juvêncio Earth was a very learned man, his books are bedside Hygiene of the Soul of Feuchtersleben, Sorrows of the World, Schopenhauer. I read with great interest also in the works Haechelo - The Origin of Life, The Riddle of the Universe.
Pays for the studies of a brother who has a degree in Engineering and hence do not know if it is born the idea of expressing love to humans and encourage their education.
So that educates 126 young people between the Teachers 1 and 2 Degrees, Universities, Nurses, Secretaries, Accountants, Business, Musicians and dietitians.
His ideal, however, is not limited to the education of youth. Helps everyone equally, without discrimination of race, sex, religion, age or country. Your support is not restricted to purely material assistance, but also and perhaps more, to moral support to the teachings, advice, which is always full of wisdom. Not infrequently competes with his presence to alleviate suffering, to pacify a misunderstanding.
His moral standing, his prudence, acting in the environment where campaigning, making it easy to concord and harmony.
In living in Belo Horizonte, became interested in the Bible, and thus often visits the Methodist Church.
Among the honors received in life, even one that moved him was given by Professor Rosalia Silva Figueira, giving his name to the College Educandário Juvêncio Earth. This undoubtedly would be a way to honor his friend and collaborator who had supported during the years of study in Belo Horizonte.
