The first batch of MSC High School – class 1998
In this issue, we feature the first batch of graduates from MSC High School, the class of 1998.
Composed of 23 students, most of the members of the class spent only two years at MSC since MSC High School started operation only in 1996.
Class Valedictorian was Hannah Pearl “Happy” U. Isleta. Happy is now a Flight Attendant at Emirates Airlines, and she now lives at Dubai, UAE. After graduating from MSC High School, she went to Ateneo de Manila University and University of the Philippines in Diliman. Coincidentally, she is married to another MSC graduate – Eric Sangcap.
