Regarding Luisa Ozema Pellerano de Henríquez. Luisa Ozema Pellerano, one of the pillars of Dominican education, was one of the country's great women. Daughter of Teresa de Castro Lara and wife of Federico Henríquez y Carvajal, who in turn was the brother of the former president of the Republic Francisco Henríquez y Carvajal, she was surrounded by the intellectual environment of her time and channeled her love for the Dominican Republic into its citizens' education.

Luisa Ozema was one of the first fourteen students of the "Young Ladies Institute" founded by Salomé Ureña, and together with her sister Eva they would continue to operate the Institute when Salomé saw her health decline.
