La Verdad Christian College Scholars: Advocates of Truth and Good Deeds, 100 Graduates, Unique Addition to the Workforce and Life as a Whole
Nearly 100 scholars of La Verdad Christian College (LVCC) in its Caloocan branch graduated last March 21, 2014 in Caloocan City.
Made possible through the joint efforts of UNTV and the Members Church of God International, LVCC-Caloocan has successfully commenced the school’s third batch of graduates since its inauguration in June 15, 2010.
UNTV Radio La Verdad 1350 Station Manager Ms. Annie Rentoy delivered the inspirational message during the event. She pointed out that these graduates are a unique addition to the workforce and to life as a whole because they are graduates of LVCC.
The first Philippine private school to offer fully free education to youths from less privileged families, the institute made schooling truly worthwhile by providing free tuition with amenities such as free lunch, uniforms, supplies and miscellaneous fee exemption.
The student grantees were assessed according to their skills and family economic status rather than their scholastic records like what most other learning institutions follow.
This quarter’s graduates earned for themselves Mass Communication Technology and Nursing Assistant diplomas.
“Now, here I am standing before a crowd of hopefuls─ the young ones who will embark on their own unique journeys,” Ms. Rentoy said during her congratulatory speech at the graduation ceremony.
La Verdad has also provided the same level of community service to as a far as Ghana since 2011 where 115 kindergarten and primary school level children are currently enrolled in its African branch.
“Remember that you were honed by no less than wisdom that is based from truth,” added Ms. Rentoy, “You are a product of unwavering love and compassion of the two blessed men, Brother Eli Soriano and Kuya Daniel Razon, who are behind this honorable institution.”
Ms. Rentoy concluded that LVCC graduates are not just simple workforce but advocates of truth and good deeds.
