CSSM Announces Full Scholarship Partnership with Habay Elementary School

In a move aimed at fostering educational opportunities and community development, the Cavite School of St. Mark has entered into a significant agreement with Habay Elementary School. This collaboration, unveiled recently, marks a remarkable stride towards empowering deserving students while reinforcing CSSM's vision of nurturing future community leaders.

Under the terms of the agreement, CSSM will provide a full scholarship package to an incoming Grade 7 student from Habay Elementary School. This comprehensive scholarship (to be known as the Dr. Rogelio R. Garcia Academic Scholarship - named after one of CSSM's founders) encompasses tuition fees, essential books, school uniform, and nutritious meals throughout the academic year. Such a generous offering not only alleviates financial burdens for the selected student but also ensures equitable access to quality education.

The decision to initiate this partnership stems from CSSM's steadfast commitment to giving back to the community it serves. By investing in the education of promising young minds, CSSM aims to lay the foundation for a brighter future, not only for the individual recipient but for the entire community.

"We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Habay Elementary School," remarked Mr. Ariel J.V. Arias, Executive Vice President at CSSM. "Education is the cornerstone of societal progress, and by providing this scholarship, we hope to empower students to reach their full potential and ultimately become pillars of their communities."

The event, held in the presence of distinguished witnesses, underscores the collective effort and collaborative spirit driving this initiative. Dr. Tina Alberto, the visionary founder of the Hope in Me Club, lends her support as a witness, embodying the spirit of philanthropy and social impact. Melanie Endozo, CSSM's esteemed Principal, and Rodney Lictao, the Coordinator for Student Development, stand as pillars of support, dedicated to realizing the organization's mission.

Joining the gathering is Mrs. Joyce Guevarra, President of Habay Elementary School's Parent-Teacher Association (PTA). Her presence symbolizes the vital role of parental involvement in shaping educational outcomes and fostering a culture of partnership between schools and communities.

Mayor Strike Revilla, a champion of grassroots initiatives and community development, will also serve as witness, underscoring the significance of this partnership in the broader context of local governance and social progress.

The selection process for the scholarship recipient will prioritize academic merit, financial need, and a demonstrated commitment to community service. Through a rigorous evaluation process, CSSM and Habay Elementary School will identify the most deserving candidate who embodies the values of perseverance, leadership, and social responsibility.

"We are immensely grateful to CSSM for their generous support," expressed Dr. Marivic Dinglasan, Principal of Habay Elementary School through her representative Mrs. Rachelle. "This scholarship represents a transformative opportunity for our students, offering them the chance to pursue their educational aspirations without financial constraints. Together, we are nurturing the next generation of community leaders."

Beyond its immediate impact on the scholarship recipient, this collaboration between CSSM and Habay Elementary School holds broader implications for community development. By empowering individuals with the tools and resources they need to succeed, CSSM is sowing the seeds for a more prosperous and resilient society.

As the scholarship program unfolds, CSSM remains steadfast in its commitment to fostering educational excellence and social mobility. Through strategic partnerships and targeted initiatives, CSSM continues to drive positive change and build a brighter future for communities across.

In the grand tapestry of societal progress, education emerges as a powerful catalyst for transformation. By investing in the potential of young minds, CSSM and Habay Elementary School are not only shaping individual destinies but also laying the groundwork for a more inclusive and prosperous future. As the scholarship recipient embarks on their educational journey, they carry with them the collective hopes and aspirations of a community united in its pursuit of excellence and opportunity.
