67 Loon Students Get Scholarships

      It’s a lucky start this school year for 67 high school freshmen students to receive scholarship grants from the Ruby Genre '63 Foundation, Inc.

      They were the current top graduates from elementary schools in the two districts in Loon.

      The Ruby Genre '63 Foundation is an organization composed of alumni of Class 1963 of the Loon Central Elementary School (now Loon South Central Elementary School).

      The foundation's current president is DBM Undersecretary Mario Relampagos, who hails from barangay Moto Sur, Loon.

      While most scholarship programs chose students from indigent families, Ruby Genre '63 prefers to be unique by choosing the best and the brightest in the class, regardless of their parents’ financial status.

      The foundation’s beneficiaries are the top five in the current school year's batch of elementary school graduates.

      A young Ruby Genre Foundation scholar enjoys a whole-year free tuition, school supplies, P300 monthly allowance, and freedom of choice to study in any of the three private schools in Loon.

      The only condition for the beneficiary student to continue enjoying the scholarship is to maintain passing grades in all the subjects and a general average grade of 85 percent.

      Basac Elementary School head Stella Orcullo, secretary of the Ruby Genre '63, said the association started offering the scholarship program only last school year to fresh elementary school graduates.

      That year the foundation accommodated only ten scholars who passed through a rigid screening and examination.

      With more funds this school year, the foundation extended to 67 of the top graduates of public elementary schools in the Loon South and Loon North Districts.

      Valedictorians and salutatorians no longer had to undergo the screening and examination.   

      Usec. Relampagos and SABER Foundation based in Manila, had been instrumental in the expansion of the scholarship to 67 high school freshmen scholars.

      In early part of May, SABER Foundation board director, Lawyer Cris Dionido, arrived in Loon to hand over an initial check worth P225,000.

      With the development, more scholarship funds from the foundation will be made available in the future.

      Granting of scholarships is just one of the many programs of the Ruby Genre '63 Foundation.

      Aside from the many development projects it has accomplished for its alma mater- -the Loon South Central Elementary School, the foundation had already established a computer learning center at the LSCES that gives out regular TESDA-accredited computer literacy trainings to students and professionals.

      On June 7, the foundation conducted the second closing exercises of its Computer Literacy Program at the Paseo de Loon.

      Certificates of Completion were distributed to 70 computer literacy graduates composed of high school and college students, retired professionals, government workers and private company employees.

      TESDA center chief, Dr. Floro Ringca gave the confirmation of the graduates as witnessed by Vice Mayor Edwin Ladeza, Ruby Genre officers and members led by their vice-president, Godofredo Orcullo, LSCES Principal Alberto Mangaron and computer literacy trainer, Jerome C. Orcullo.

      With its thrusts into educational aid and development, the Ruby Genre ’63 Foundation has joined the administration of Mayor Lloyd Peter Lopez, M.D. and Vice-Mayor Ladeza in giving appropriate attention to Loon’s top and highly intelligent students in both the secondary and tertiary levels.
