CHAIRMAN’S NOTE

The Long View

Two months ago two of our Night High Scholars who went on to be our college scholars passed the Board Exam for Electrical Engineers. Electrical Engineering is a 5 year course and the two who graduated from the course, then passed the Board Exam are:

Fatima “Mima” Vilador, 22 years old, a resident of Taytay and a graduate of Siena College, Taytay, Rizal, and the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP). She recently, donated 8 inches of her hair to make wigs for cancer patients.

 

mercado
Mercado Mercado, was also one of our former Night High Scholars from Siena College, Taytay, Rizal, who recently passed his Electrical Engineer Board Exams.  Mercado used to volunteer at our office in his spare time or during semestral breaks, to collect ABC donation cans around Metro Manila.  Like Fatima, Mercado is a graduate of Rizal Technological University.

This school year we have 190 scholars in 30 different universities and colleges and two first year scholars are in The University of The Philippines.

Pao Grecia
 

In the Cebu City campus of UP we have scholar Paolo Grecia, majoring in BS Psychology. Paolo was our Night High Scholar in Siena, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan, and was the Valedictorian of his class. He is excited about all the possibilities ahead of him. He reported to us recently that though he finds being a UP student quite overwhelming, he’s learning to manage his time, and balance his academics, as well as his social life.

Kim Flores
 

In the Los Banos campus of UP we have scholar Kimberely Flores, majoring in B.S. Forestry. She too has big plans for her future and the possibility of reforesting the country. Kimberely was our scholar in Night High School at Siena College, Taytay, Rizal.

With Mima and Mercado launching their new careers in Electrical Engineering we wish them the best of good fortune and are thankful that they took ‘the long view’ towards their education. And with Kimberely and Paolo we encourage them to take that same long view, invest the time needed to get a first rate education and then to get out in the world and use that education wisely.

Good wishes to all,
