    This particular program is something new to the Society, which, in the past. among others, has concentrated in assisting its own member’s knowledge in the area of construction trade.

    “We’re excited with this new program, and we’re very thankful for the opportunity,” declared by its Founding President Mr. Amado Mercado Jr.

    President Ed Nicolas, now on his second term as the Society’s leader is very appreciative of the effort.  “I truly would like to thank the community and the officers and members who had been actively involved on this program.

    Special thanks to Jay Razon and Mr. Amado Mercado for their effort in meeting PUP’s Dean of Engineering and Vice President of Academic Affairs in Manila where they’ve also interviewed and screened the candidates,”  Nicolas added.  The Society also appreciates VP Ferdie Lontok who conducted a seminar in Manila at the MHHS office related to FCCS and Electrical trades in Canada.”

    “The support of the Board and the local community is no-doubt very crucial in such an ambitious undertaking like this. We would have not been able to sponsor these students without this type of support. It’s pretty amazing! Last year alone we netted around $5,000 in just one fundraising event. ” added by Jay Razon, former VP and now the society’s Secretary.

    As the Society moves forward, FCCS appeals for everyone’s continued support to ensure the sustainability of the scholarship program.
