Aside from the cold breeze, SCG Sharing the Dream scholars felt the spirit of Christmas early as they were treated to an afternoon of surprise.
A total of 300 SCG scholars from Taguig, Manila, Batangas and Bulacan received early Christmas presents as SCG, in partnership with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), organized a four-day visit to select SM department stores where the students can buy new pairs of school shoes. Each student was given P1,000 to purchase the shoes that they want and was a part of school supply package every scholar receive together with financial support.
From imparting knowledge on different subject matters to sharing life lessons, looking after students’ needs while in school to doing double duty as friends and counselors, teachers serve as the second parents of the students.

But these teachers were once students too, and like the young minds they are guiding now, they also aspired for a brighter future for themselves and their families.
Such is the story of Jerome Madla, an SCG Sharing the Dream scholar who dreamed of becoming a teacher and in 2015, finally realized that dream. Jerome Madla joined today’s modern heroes when he passed the Licensure Exam for Teachers (LET) out of a total of 149, 905 examinees.
