MSC Origins Part III : Start of Classes at A. Flores St.

Our transfer to A. Flores St. was very timely because of our rapidly growing enrollment. In our first month alone, 43 students enrolled. Another 80 enlisted in the first 5 months of 1990. Most of them took up the FCO course. A few FCO finishers continued their computer education by taking up the Advanced Computer Operations (ACO) course.

Our students are varied. We had professionals like Atty. Hizon Arago and Fr. Raul Magmanlac. During the summer break of 1990, even elementary and high school students took up our courses. Many of them were siblings: Emmanuel, Angelica and Veronica Prudente; Celeste Remedios, Antonio Jr. and Antonio III Celestino, Jeanne Patricia, Eugene Jonathan, Ann Cristina and Carolyn Alonzo; Katherine and Josefina Javaluyas; Derrick Josue and Anna Larissa Goze; and Bernard and Juris Tiu.

We also started offering computer classes in other schools. We provided the computers and the instructors for the first computer classes held in Saint Joseph School, CC Technical Institute and San Antonio de Padua in Pila,  Laguna.

From June to the end of 1990, we had 232 more enrollees, many of them professionals, teachers and government employees. Notable among them are lawyers Lourdes Casco, now MTC Judge in Tayabas City and former San Pablo City Councilor Regina De La Cruz(+), businessmen Rudy Verzonilla and Fred Lim, government employees Ruben Taningco, NeliaAverion, Josefina Andal, Steve Manalo, Orlando Decano, and CARD leaders Annie Alip and Lorenz de Torres. Also among them are Arnel Ticzon, now second term San Pablo City Councilor and Domingo Raymundo, now a two term National Vice President of APEX.

Our software department, had as of the middle of 1990, developed the inventory software for JRS Motors and the personnel file system for Franklin Baker Company.

Listening to the notable speakers during the event was another learning experience for the MSC students. Congresswoman Sol Aragones, Supt. Susan Oribiana, and Councilor Arnel Ticzon on behalf of Mayor Amben Amante talked about the role of our heroes in gaining the Philippine independence, and on the role of Filipinos especially the youth of today in preserving our freedom.

The event’s closing program was the floral offering at the foot of the   Rizal monument.

After the city plaza Independence Day celebration, the MSC Junior High School students    proceeded to SM City San Pablo to attend another    program. The key speaker, Vice-Gov. Karen Agapay gave an inspiring message of what it is to be a Filipino. The program was highlighted by pledges to SM’s Project Smile.
