Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, the former SSRDF scholar, is sponsoring 10 scholars starting SY 2011-12.  Currently she has 3 SSRDF scholars, up from 1 scholar when she started her sponsorship a couple of years ago.  Not long ago she visited some Sisters on the occasion of the donation of an AUV to the Institute of Women’s Studies and the signing of a formal deed of donation of assistance to the hospital that the Benedictine Sisters are putting up for the poor of Eastern Samar.

Two Paguia sisters visited Sister Soledad and gave their family’s donation for a scholarship fund in memory of their mother, Teodora Guizon Paguia.

Former Ambassador Bienvenido Tan Jr. has established 3 new scholarship funds with a capital of one million pesos each, in the name of his deceased mother, Salome Limgenco-Tan, his wife, Emma Rustia-Tan, and his sister, Consuelo Tan.  At the start of every school year he would turn over the interest income of the funds to the SSRDF for the benefit of 3 scholars.  His Salome Limgenco-Tan Foundation will administer the capital of the funds.

Early in March 2011 Sister M. Bernardita Bernas, OSB went home to God. “Sister Bernie” graduated from college at SSC, and taught for a number of years at SSC and some of the other Benedictine schools besides holding an administrative position perhaps most of the time.  Family, former classmates and friends sent in contributions for a memorial scholarship in her memory – the Sister Bernardita Bernas Memorial Scholarship.  That has been set up by the SSRDF.

Eight SSRDF scholars received their bachelor degrees in March, 2011.  Two of them graduated cum laude – Jeminah Landicho with a bachelor’s degree in psychology and in guidance and counselling; and Danica Enrico with a bachelor’s degree in information technology.


Dr. Carmen Intengan Called Home to God.  On January 23, 2011 Dr. Carmen Intengan went home peacefully to God in her home.  Dr. Intengan was a sponsor of scholars supported by the SSRDF.  She funded her scholarship fund with  P1,000,000 some years ago.  Students under the program, particularly those studying Nutrition, benefited from her generosity.


Dr.  Intengan was instrumental in starting the nutrition course at SSC years ago.  At the time she was the head of the Institute of Nutrition of the University of the Philippines.  Dr. Intengan herself was a Scholastican alumna, a high school graduate of 1931.


Fifteen (15) SSRDF scholars made it to the honor roll after the first semester of SY 2010-11.  Congratulations!


SSRDF received notice of two new scholarships starting SY 2010-12:  the CONSUELO L. TAN SCHOLARSHIP IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, and the EMMA R.

Tan, Jr.


Student Council President is SSRDF Scholar.  Elected president of the College Student Council for 2010-11 is Jeminah Landicho, an SSRDF scholar.  Jeminah was one of two Scholasticans chosen for the Ayala Young Leaders Summer Camp of 2010.  As the head of the College Student Council, Jeminah sits as a member of the College Board of Trustees.
