and High School Diploma
Now, for its sixth consecutive year, ANAK awarded the Liwayway Scholarship for Leadership Excellence to two high school graduates. This year’s recipients, Patricia Reyes (Garden City Collegiate) and Elizabeth Rivera (St. Mary’s Academy), were awarded scholarships to be used towards their post-secondary studies at the University of Manitoba. Both took part in the extensive selection process that included a critical essay and a group interview. Not only do they excel in their academics, they also demonstrated keen interest on their Filipino cultural heritage during the group interview. I hope they continue to question and pursue our cultural heritage and make for themselves the identity that most suits them. Congratulations to our recipients this year!
Congratulations to the Class of 2012!
