IT IS RARE to happen that the valedictorian and the salutatorian in a batch are best of friends; more so, if they have been classmates for 10 years and are both Chinese-Filipinos. Yet this is the case of Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS this year as Anya Isabella Pechueco Cordero and Bernice Jilian Ong Hu will be earning the 1-2 spot from the 178 candidates for graduation this March 26.
IN RESPONSE to the devastation caused by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), Ateneo de Iloilo (ADI) launched relief and rehabilitation operations last November 11, 2013. Students, parents, alumni, teachers, and staff contributed goods and cash for the relief drive. Donations from other institutions and individuals also poured in.
