Featured Batch: MSC 3-year Office Management Course Class 1994-95 (first batch)

When MSC started offering computer classes, the first courses were short-term courses on computer operation and programming.  In the first semester of school year 1991-1992, two-year courses on Computer Technology and Office Management were offered to the growing number of MSC students.  Then in school year 1994-95, MSC offered the three-year courses on Computer Technology and Office Management.

Six fresh graduates of the two-year Office Management course enrolled in the new 3-year course.  These were:  Claire Ticzon, Aileen Metica, Aileen Tanodra, Jocelyn Maranan, Lina Jader, Raquel Dioyo, and Letty Changco.

Aside from the regular academic classes, these ladies underwent extensive training in the different offices of MSC.  Eventually, most were absorbed by the different departments and a few worked in the different MSC companies.

Claire and Aileen Metica became computer teachers in MSC partner schools, and later they were hired as MSC instructors.

Lina and Letty worked at MSC Data Exchange – MSC’s one-stop computer shop

Raquel Dioyo worked as Cashier at MSC.

Aileen Tanodra worked at Escuela de Valle Verde as teacher.

Jocelyn worked at the Hall of Justice of San Pablo City.

Notes from alumni

By Lea Capule

After finishing high school, I opted to look for a job because my family could not afford to send me to college. I felt that my dream of becoming a professional just ended right there and then.  I worked as a saleslady in a pharmacy.

After a few months, my aunt offered to pay for my tuition provided it would be within budget.  The only school I knew then were Laguna College, San Pablo Colleges, Canossa and Trade.  I had no idea about other institutions that offered vocational courses. Then my high school friend introduced me to MSC and encouraged me to take their scholarship exam.

I got the scholarship so  I enrolled in MSC Computer Training Center, with the thought that after two years, I could land in a much better job.  I finished the 2-yrs Office Management Course and was awarded as the Most Outstanding Student (Batch ’96).  After graduation, MSC offered me a student assistant position and encouraged me to finish the 3-yr course which luckily I did.

During those times MSC tied-up with private and public elementary and secondary high schools and MSC provided computers and computer instructor for their students’ computer lessons.  I became a computer instructor in several institutions, like Del Remedio Elementary School and DLSP.  Having experienced the joys of teaching and having developed fondness for students eager to learn, I finally chose to take up Bachelor of Secondary Education and successfully graduated in 2004.

True to its principles, MSC welcomed me again, this time, as a high school teacher.  I believe MSC was as proud as I was when I passed the licensure exam for teachers!  I am really grateful that MSC had been my stepping stone in realizing my full potential and it developed me to be the educator I am today.

Dream big…MSC will help and encourage you achieve your dreams =)
