Adapt. Create. Transform. (ACT)
          Southern Christian College started the academic calendar year 2020-2021 with a week-long
devotion for its faculty and staff on June 1-5, 2020. Employees were oriented with changes that the school
must adapt to the new normal, and some of them were recognized for their years of service to the
institution.
          To observe physical distancing, the Monday Morning Devotion (MMD), a weekly general assembly
of SCC employees over the years, was done through a week-long devotion dividing the departments and
units into clusters to reduce the House of Worship’s capacity.
          During the devotion, the Human Resource Development Office provided updates and reminders to
the employees about the minimum health requirements to remain healthy and maintain safety to fight the
spread of COVID19 disease. They also recognized Service Awardees for 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years of
service and those employees who completed their MMD attendance. Some employees symbolically
signed their appointments.
          The President Dr. Edwin T. Balaki congratulated the Academic Affairs division headed by Dr.
Neyrma N. Cabatac for sharing the teaching-learning system of SCC new-normal ready. He also
motivated SCC employees to keep their faith steadfast and to work more for their ministries in order to
survive this pandemic.
          SCC continues to support and protect its employees especially in this time of crisis and is still
committed in providing quality education to every student. As what Dr. Balaki said, “In the midst of
uncertainties, life must go on.”
