Last May 20, 2017 at the Leong Hall Auditorium of the Ateneo de Manila University, the scholars of graduating class of 2017 had a chance to personally thank their benefactors at the Get-together of Benefactors & Class of 2017. AAA president Melissa S. Reyes had a chance to meet two of the scholars of the Order of the Blue Eagles Andrea Denise D. Ng of BS Management and Carlo Jejomar Pascual Sanchez of AB Philosophy.
“It was nice to finally put a face to Ms. Miel after all this time,” said Andrea. “I had a deeper sense of gratitude after meeting and talking with her. I think in general, all of us scholars were very happy to have the chance to say a simple thank you to our benefactors for giving us the gift of an Ateneo education.”
For Carlo, meeting the benefactors is an eye-opening experience. “The coming together of more than 400 students and their respective benefactors was truly a sight to behold. It inspired me to make the most out of the opportunities I have been blessed with; it inspired me to live out the Ignatian vision of service for others.”
Last May 26 and 27, Carlo graduated with Honorable Mention and Andrea graduated Magna Cum Laude.
Congratulations to Andi and Carlo from the Order of the Blue Eagles and the Ateneo Alumni Association. We are extremely proud of you both and wish you all the best as you go down from the hill. AMDG!
