Recognitions is bestowed to Sunrise Christian College
By Antonio C. Medroso
winds of desolation and a handful of discouragements,
the Government thru, CHD granted its recognition to
Sunrise Christian College at last!
was April 20, 2005, that the Government through Dr.
Joanna B. Cuenca issued to Sunrise Christian College,
the permit to operate the Bachelor of Science in Secondary
Education and the Bachelor of Science in Elementary
Education, all with the emphasis on English as its major
field of concentration.
does this mean? Well folks, its either a license and
A license for Sunrise Christian College to accept enrollees
or to operate without legal harm, and of course a badge
of validation to be shown whichever part of the Philippines
one is; or was; or would be a product of a school, ripened
by time and honest effort and dedication of our college
the bestowal of such recognition, at least one could
validly say that anything can work for good as long
as God is there. We recall all those days of not so
long ago; people would almost say in the face of the
founding president that he was insane and that he was
barking for the moon. Not at all! He was barking for
the less fortunate students and for the good work that
will result to a better society of people.
President would just debate in silence and would even
strengthen more its passion to deliver what is good
and just for people who needed his project by the heart,
and would even look days more forward of realizing his
dreams of building a school which he knew so well to
benefit especially those who were the less fortunate
It was true that there were times of discouragements
even to the point of giving up his dream. This happens
the most when people painted his intentions with malice
and presented it in a canvass of smear campaign, flatly
because his way as the founding president and the Genesis
of the plan was not the way others would want it to
that the President, having a natural flair of a pure
spirited person and a man of vision just went on day
by day like a stone- cutter slowly hammering
away the rock of his vision. Perhaps not just like a
hundred times without as much as a crack showing in
it. Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split
into two, and he knew it was not that blow that did
it - but all that were done before. Brethren,
Believers and dreamers; It was not the President who
did it alone but the greatest reality of the need to
educate men especially the less fortunate ones.
Thank God for the Government Recognitions!
