ABC Foundation visited the Night High Scholars of St. Dominic Academy at Pulilan, Bulacan, January 30, with sponsors Bob and Beverly Sellar, who came all the way from California to be with us and to spend some time with their scholars.
The Night High Scholars of St. Dominic Academy welcomed us by putting on a short program of singing and dancing.
Second year Night High Scholar, Jay-R Dela Cruz presented a poem of gratitude to ABC Foundation, and the St. Dominic Academy administration presented a Certificate of Appreciation to Chairman Lew Edwards, Mr. Bob Sellar, and Ms. Beverly Sellar, for sponsoring a daily feeding program for all 150 Night High Scholars of St. Dominic Academy.
The daily feeding program for the Night High Scholars of St. Dominic Academy, Pulilan, Bulacan was first sponsored by Mr. Bob and Ms. Beverly Sellar in S.Y. 2008-2009, and is now on its 4th year. Because of the success of the feeding program in providing nutritious meals prepared in the school canteen by volunteer parents of the scholars, the Sellars have continued to sponsor the feeding program every year since S.Y. 2008-2009, and will continue to sponsor the program in S.Y. 2012-2013.
Mr. Bob and Ms. Beverly Sellar will be in the Philippines for only a few weeks and were very happy to have gotten the chance to visit St. Dominic Academy again and to meet all the very enthusiastic and helpful administrators, teachers, staff and Night High Scholars.
Also with us on our visit were Paolo Santos, who, with the help of the Sellars, donated sports equipment to the Night High Scholars of St. Dominic Academy last school year; Ms. Judith Lozano, and former Night High scholar and ABC intern, Alexis Balansag.
Our special thanks to Sr. Linda Guerrero, O.P., Head of St. Dominic Academy, and Ms. Claire Melebo, for all their help and support, and to all the Night High Scholars for their warm welcome and touching words of gratitude.
