ALL SET FOR SCC’S BIGGEST OPENING: GOVERNOR, BOT CHAIR TO CUT RIBBON
MIDSAYAP, COTABATO—The old is gone and the new has come.
The entire Southern Christian College community is in high spirits this week as it sets to open what is considered the biggest project in recent years- the SCC Fellowship Center.
For more than 23 years, the old gymnasium also called the Civic Center has been home to the school’s biggest activities. However as times pass by, the Civic Center faced many challenges in terms of its capacity to cater to the rising needs of the students. For recent years, more and more students can no longer be accommodated due to its physical limitations.
Many also considered that while it was a conducive venue for SCC activities during the time it was built, its conditions made it obsolete and unresponsive to the growing demands for venue to hold the school’s big activities.
In February 2014, the building of the new gymnasium commenced and after eight months of dedicated hard work and engineering, the SCC Fellowship Center will finally be opened for the community on October 1, 2014 at 9:00 in the morning.
The opening will highlight a fellowship service to be led by the College Chaplain. A production and ecumenical show will also be part of the celebration.
During the Monday morning devotion, SCC President Dr. Edwin T. Balaki announced that the ribbon cutting will be led by the school administrators with the presence of Cotabato Governor Emmylou “Lala” Taliño Mendoza and the Chairman of the SCC Board of Trustees Hon. Moises Arendain.
The entire SCC community composed of students, faculty and staff, parents, partners and UCCP church leaders are expected to be present during the celebration.
The opening will follow after the dedication of other projects in SCC. These projects include the Skyrooms at the Tech Voc building, the Xenia Joy garden, the cafeteria expansion and the Quality Assurance and Accreditation center.
The opening of the projects is part of SCC’s 65th year foundation anniversary. (scc-mpcd)
