Stories from the Alumni: Sammy Suco

Pagpasensyahan nyo na po…. Galing po ako sa mahirap na pamilya, kaya noon, wala na ako pag-asa makapag-college… Salamat na lang may MSC, nakapag-aral ako at sa tulong ng naging amo ko sa Tiaong.

MSC was my Guardian

In 1993, I went to Tiaong, Quezon and I worked for the former chief of Police in Tiaong, Quezon.

His name is Martin Magnayon. They were a supplier of hogs in the local market.

They used me as the caretaker of hogs from birth to fattener. I was taking care of 13 mother pigs and it usually delivered more than 10 piglets 3 times a year.

Our agreement, aside from monthly salary, they would give me a commission of one piglet if the mother pig delivered more than 10 piglets.

In 1994, I decided to go to college since I was already a high school graduate from General Santos City before I came to Tiaong.

First semester in SY 1994-1995, I enrolled at LC and I felt happy because I can pursue my college education and ready to be a professional someday.

But no! The tuition fees almost stopped me. It was  high for me, so I could not afford to continue my studies.  Before the second semester started in the same school year, I tried to search for other good schools in San Pablo City.

I found the same course in AMA and STI. But the tuition fees were almost the same.

Finally I found one of the small advertisements of MSC,   located at M. Paulino St., San Pablo City. I went there and I inquired. They offered me the scholarship examination for the same course.

I was one of the lucky students because I got a 10% discount.  I continued studying in MSC, San Pablo City while working in Tiaong as helper.

Still I had money  problem during this semester.  I didn’t have enough money to support my ambition. I just finished the second semester and then stopped.  So I went  back to continue my career, “hahaha! as hog raiser of my boss’ backyard piggery farm.

I stopped for a year and thought my ambition was no longer possible.

By school year 1996-1997, I had a little money, so I enrolled again.  MSC was located already in La Suerte building along Rizal Avenue, San Pablo City.  I has a lot of experiences and fond memories as a college student.  We formed good friendships.

I met a lot more friends than usual, since I was an irregular student. My classmates were from the afternoon shift and evening shift and sometimes from morning shift, especially in the PE subject.

School year 1997-1998 was the final year of my Computer Technology course. 

In the first semester of that school year, I applied as Student Assistant to Sir Ike.  Being a student assistant helped me a lot,  since as such, my tuition fee was discounted 100%!

In this semester, Mr. Adonis Duma selected me as one of the instructors in the tie-up school. I was assigned to teach computer subjects in DEBES elementary school.

So on top of my tuition, MSC provided by my allowance.

In the second semester, I worked as a technician in MSCNet, the first Internet Provider in San Pablo City.

I graduated the Computer Technology course in March 1998.

After this course, I enrolled in a 2-year Computer Technician course, and again took advantage of the 100% discount. I learned a lot in MSC, while studying, including a lot of actual and real work.

In the late 1999, MSC brought me to Pasig City to work in the prestigious company, Software Ventures International as Computer Technician (Hardware Maintenance Group). I worked under the supervision of VYP, Jr. (Sir Toto).

Currently I am working as IT Support Engineer in Al Arrab Contracting Company, a general contractor in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

I am proud to say I am a product of MSC!

I would like to thank the MSC Teachers and Staff during my stay in my Alma mater. Thank you, Mr. Adonis Duma, my adviser. Special thanks also to Mr. VYP, my mentor who stood as my adopted father during my MSC days.

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 =)

MSC High School – Memories Worth Remembering

MSC High School was a big help for me and my family! I am so blessed that there’s a school like this that cares for the needs of the youth, who like me, want to pursue their dreams.

Money was a problem for us and studying in a private school was impossible unless I received a scholarship grant. I was so blessed that MSC High School offered me 100% Scholarship —  including tuition fees, books, miscellaneous, and monthly allowances. For my four-years in high school, I enjoyed those privileges.

But MSC High School is not a spoon-feeding school. I enjoyed those privileges for four years because I had to meet high academic standards and maintain a range of grades. I made it because MSC High School provides Quality Education for its students.  MSC education is one of the factors that enabled me to pass the prestigious UPCAT (UP College Admission Test) and enroll in the UPLB (University of the Philippines at Los Baños).

Now I am a Research and Development Officer in one of the major food companies. I won’t forget that MSC High School once cradled me and nurtured me to become who I am today. I thank God for these opportunities and privileges. God made Sir Ike and Ma’am Lerma as vessels of His blessings. My experiences in MSC are very much treasured. It’s nice to become nostalgic because the memories of MSC High School for me are really worth remembering!

What do parents say about MSC High School?

Nothing makes school administrators and faculty members happier than to get positive feedback from parents of students and alumni.  We’re proud to share some feedback:

Sa MSC ko pinapasok ang aking mga anak dahil sa ang pangunahing pangangailangan ng mga estudyante ngayon ay nasa MSC, tulad ng computers. Alam naming marami silang matututunan dito, lalo na tungkol sa computers.

Lorena Austria
Mother of Kim, May & Cindy

Ako po bilang isang magulang na nagpaaral ng apat na anak sa MSC ay lubos na natuwa at nasiyahan sa kadahilanang nakatapos po ang aking mga anak na marami ang natutunan lalo na po sa musika, teknolohiya, at ang tungkol sa computers. Para sa akin po, ang MSC ay hindi lamang para sa mayayaman kundi para din pala sa mahihirap, dahil nagbibigay po sila ng scholarship sa mga batang matatalino ngunit mahirap at me nakakatapos dito ng wala o konti kamang ang binayaran. Nagustuhan ko ang MSC dahil maayos ang mga silid aralan, matatalino at mababait ang mga nagtuturo dito, pati na rin ang may ari at staff nito.

Sana po ay patuloy ang pagbibigay ng discount sa mga mahirap ngunit matatalinong bata. at hanggang sa aking magiging apo ay patuloy ko pa ring papag-aaralin diyan sa MSC.

Benedicto T. Pabelonia Sr.
Father of Adrian, Philip, Abel, Benny, & MB

Tatlo sa apat kong anak ang nag-aral sa MSC HS. Kasabay ng pag-aaral ng mga bata ay ang pagpupundar ko ng isang maliit na negosyo. Kulang kami sa pinansyal ng pangangailangan noong panahong iyon subalit hindi naging balakid na ituloy ang pag-aaral ng mga bata. Naging maluwag para sa akin ang pagbabayad ng Tuition fee na hindi naman kalakihan kumpara sa ibang private schools.

Sa panahon ngayon, ang computer ang isa sa pangunahing pangangailangan ng bayan tungo sa kaunlaran. Kundi ka marunong sa computer, mapag-iiwanan ka. Napakalaking tulong ng computer noong tumuntong sila sa Colegio. Palagi silang nangunguna sa mga course requirements dahil sila mismo ang gumagawa at di na nakikipagsiksikan sa computer shop. Sa MSC, mahaba ang oras nila sa computer lesson kaya mabilis silang natututo kesa sa ibang schools na halos isang oras lang ang time sa computer lesson. Malaki ang pasasalamat ng mga anak ko sa malaking advantage sa kanila ang maging computer literate.

Napakalaking tulong po ang Cleto G. Prudente Scholarship na naipagkaloob sa akin noon dahil napakarami ko pong natutunan noong ako ay nasa High School pa lamang…

Nagkaroon po ako ng opportunities na maexperience yung mga bagay na alam kong hindi ko maeexperience kung hindi ako sa MSC pumasok.. Kaya maraming-maraming salamat po.. Sa tulong po na naipagkaloob ninyo, napakaraming buhay ang inyong nababago, at isa po ako sa buhay na patotoo.. Salamat po!”

I’m Louie Francis Alvarez, one of the Cleto G. Prudente Memorial Scholars. I completed my secondary education in MSC High School and took up Bachelor of Science in Statistics at the University of the Philippines, Los Baños.  After graduation, I was able to get a job as a Data Quality Consultant in Pan Pacific Computer Center Inc. (PPCC) and then after a few years I worked as a Technical Analyst in Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC). I also worked overseas in a multinational bank as a Senior SAS Analyst Programmer in Standard Chartered Scope International Malaysia.

I’m very grateful that I was given the privilege to be a scholar in one of the private school in the city that helped me prepare to face the college life and the real world. This life-changing opportunity was made possible by Sir Ike, who has supported my education since the beginning of my high school and who still believed in me despite all the things that happened. The support that was provided to me does not covers tuition fee only but also includes almost all of the things I needed to complete my studies. This includes a monthly allowance that helped me join extra-curricular activities such as joining the camps of the Boy Scout of the Philippines and contests. This not only provided me with the much needed education but has also given me the chance to experience things that I would not have learned in school.

If it were not for the financial assistance given to me by Prudente family, I would not have been able to continue and finish my college education and help my family to have a better life. Because of this, I was able to help and assist my brothers and sisters to complete their schooling too. Two of them already completed their college degree while three of my other siblings are still in college level. I’m hoping that they will finish their studies in next two to three years so I can also help other children with their schooling.
