SMC Awards Outstanding Performers During Centennial Celebration

On the occasion of the Centennial Celebration of the Foundation of Saint Michael College, administrators, faculty, staff , alumni and benefactors of SMC were given honors and praises as they received awards last September 29, 2015 at the Maalman Christian Community Center (MCCC) for their Outstanding Service and Performance to the school, church and community and for their selfless giving of their time, effort and expertise for the good of the many.
The Awards Night started with the arrival ceremony and the Red Carpet Rites by the SMC Board of Trustees, Administration, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, Benefactors, Visitors and Awardees at exactly 6:00 o’clock in the evening. Beauty and glamour enveloped the place during the entrance of the distinguished ladies and gentlemen. The Maalman Christian Community Center, which was ornamented with beautiful flowers and materials with touches of blue, silver and white, was inviting. Music echoed at every corner of the place. The Centennial Banquet was announced at 7:00 o’clock sharp that evening by Mrs. Marie Angeli Y. Jadloc, Program Master. Then, Mr. Francis Carmelle T. Duero led the blessing before meal. This was followed by the Centennial Toast led by Mr. Frantor B. Fernandez where everyone held his or her glass of wine and shouted cheers for SMC. Instrumental music was played while everyone enjoyed the dinner.
The program was formally opened with a Prayer sung by Mr. Eric Jesson J. Bucalon and Ms. Louvanne Jessa D. Orzales. Then, a prelude given by the Hinajaw Dance troupe followed. Sister Vivina M. Init, SPC, Directress gave a heartwarming Welcome Greetings and the Rationale of the occasion was presented by Mrs. Jocelyn P. Comon. The Hinajaw Dance Troupe gave another presentation that was well applauded. The Centennial Message by Dr. Dulcemina O. Leva, SMC high school alumna and a highly esteemed educator, followed. The message conveyed the essence of love for service and the beauty of the humility and simplicity of SMC in its joys and struggles in the journey while proactively responding to the demand of education.
The most anticipated part and highlight of the activity, the awarding rites, was welcomed with excitement and applause from the spectators. Indeed, it was a beautiful affair with the ladies in their Filipina wear and the gentlemen dressed in Barong Tagalog gleefully parading and receiving their respective award from Sister Vivina M. Init, SPC, Directress.
After the awarding ceremony, the Michaelinian Divas presented an inspirational song. Then, the Jubilee Song was sung loudly and heartily by everyone. Baile followed the awarding rites. The night was filled with joy as everyone enjoyed swaying their way with the music. The gym was alive and the awardees, particularly the alumni, were happy sharing with each other the beautiful moment while reminiscing their past in SMC.
The program successfully ended at 11:00 o’clock in the evening. The Centennial Prayer was flashed on the screen and in chorus everyone recited the prayer.
