April 24, 2017, St. Scholastica’s College, Manila--The launch of the Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo Center for Leadership Excellence gives a major boost to St. Scholastica College Manila’s tradition of being a premier venue for training women leaders and influencers.

Launched on the 110th year of the school’s foundation, this project was made possible through a donation by outstanding Scholastican, Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo, President and CEO of Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI) and President of HARI Foundation, Inc. (HFI).

 

The donation was coursed through HARI Foundation, Inc. (HFI) the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of HARI.

The spruced-up former grand Social Hall is housed in St. Hildegarde, which was built by prominent Filipino architect Cesar H. Concio and inaugurated in 1938 by Vice President Sergio Osmeña. Construction and restoration was awarded to Dominic Quimbo Galicia Architects who maintained Concio’s mannerist and Beaux Art influence, while endowing it with state-of-the-art education facilities.

 

In her inaugural speech, Ms. Agudo, a student council president in her campus days, said, “This Center for Leadership Excellence stands as a symbol of all that is true and proud about being a Scholastican for the 21st century.” According to St. Scholastica’s College President Sr. Mary Frances Dizon, OSB the Maria Fe Perez-Agudo Center for Leadership Excellence is now “a better home for women leaders.”

 

A staunch advocate of education, Ms. Agudo has generously supported the College’s priority programs. She supports a number of college scholars, while, through HFI, she spearheaded the building of the St. Scholastica Mission Hospital which is now serving the people of Catarman, Samar, one of the poorest areas in the country.
