Mensagem:  They are right, but the context is different in kind.

A patron could be "um padrinho" symbolic, an establishment figure (for instance - the president, a governor, etc), a renowned scientist or some senior scholar or well-known person recognized as a role model and with achievements in his field (a well-known author, artist etc).

Cuba's Fidel Castro was the graduation patron of 74 officers from Venezuela's elite military academy. Castro acted on request from the Venezuelan officers' promotion that flew to Havana for the celebration.

"For Cuba, it's a great honor, a real privilege, your decision to hold this event in our country" said the Cuban leader at the graduation ceremony held at the Council of State in Havana.

Castro bestowed upon the newly graduated officers Cuban "military brotherhood" medals and diplomas from Venezuela's Libertador Simon Bolivar military academy.
