CENTEX schools mark an end to another school year

  BY Ayala Foundation       April 12, 2017       education, Recognition Day, centex

Last April 4, CENTEX Manila had their recognition day. Students from grades 1 to 5 celebrated the end to another school year as they marched and received certificates and awards.

In the morning batch, guest speaker and CENTEX alumna Hannah Marcelo shared that although work may sometimes be hard, she finds fulfillment in working not only for herself, but also for the communities she serves.

“Itinuro sa akin ng CENTEX na may magagawa ako upang mabago ang katayuan ko sa buhay. Natutunan ko sa murang edad na magkaroon ng hangaring hindi lang para sa sarili ko kundi para rin sa mga taong mahal ko at para sa mga tao sa paligid ko.”

Having graduated as a scholar of Fine Arts at the Far Eastern University, Hannah is now currently working at Ayala Foundation as a Multimedia Specialist.

The graduates did not forget to thank their parents:

“To our beloved parents and families, the true foundations of who and what we have become, you deserve to share every honor we receive today. You have continuously strengthened and inspired us, without which we would have never reached this moment. You have all given much to see this day, and we hope that in some way we have made you proud.”
