Before the discovery of mounds, which could be ancient Maya remains, staff of the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) have been investigating lately the area of Ticul, where preparations are made to start the construction of the Benito Juarez Garcia Public University.
This finding was confirmed by municipal authorities, who assure that the INAH has already approved the construction site. In fact, it is expected that the ground breaking ceremony will be presided by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, however there is no official date yet.
Mayor Rafael Montalvo Mata points out that in recent days a report was made of the discovery of possible Maya vestiges in the grounds where the University will be built, on the outskirts of the city towards Chapab, and therefore the intervention of INAH was requested .
“The lands were already released, just a mound was secured, and there were no other observations by INAH, so the workers continue to level the land there,” the mayor said.
Regarding the rumor that López Obrador would arrive in Ticul for the ground breaking ceremony, the mayor assures that there is no date yet of the arrival of the president.
The federal delegate of Programs Development, Joaquín Díaz Mena, delivered documentation to 360 students that aspire to be part of the first generation of this campus.
In the next few days induction courses will be offered to students who will enter one of the first two degrees that will be offered by the Benito Juárez García Public University, which are “Community Health and Integral Medicine”, and “Physical Education” with a specialty in Baseball.
