Adalid is an active community leader, having served as Pastor of the Evangelical church in El Pital for many years. Not having the opportunity himself to pursue studies beyond the sixth grade, Adalid understands the value of education for his children and was thrilled when the Cangrejal Special Education Project began in 2008, granting his youngest daughter, Maylin, the opportunity to pursue her studies for the first time.
