We the Lasallian family will soon be celebrating the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. What does this mean to us? This serves as a reminder of what we as Lasallians are destined to do. And that is to carry out the mission of St La Salle. We must continue to live in Service, Faith, and Community.
In the words of St John Baptist de La Salle “You have received talents and graces from God.” The question now is what are we doing specifically about these God-given talents?” Have you found your answers? Or, are you still searching? Have you turned to a mentor to guide you in your journey to find your answers? Question, questions and more questions. It can be stressful, and it can be mind-boggling. And to some extent it can be, sadly, depressing.
I am pleased to announce to the community DLSAA’s “baby steps” since the start of president’s term, last June 1, 2020.
Your DLSAA in its drive for business continuity is in constant search of milestone events, especially during this time of crisis. Needless to say our regular events such as our annual homecoming, our Brother Ben Golf Cup and our One La Salle Night of Excellence (OLSNOE) are now in question for 2021. The planning will definitely still happen. In this time of Covid-19, we are in prayer with our countrymen that we will overcome the challenges faced today.
Allow me this opportunity to share with you how this all started. During my sophomore year from 1971-1972, I so happen to notice in someone’s office in campus, where I no longer can recall, elections for Sophomore President was open. So I took my chance and registered at the last minute. Came election day, I stood outside of the polls only to see potential voters pass by not showing any interest in voting. Fortunately I saw a classmate and literally dragged him into the voting center to vote. And that he did. And so I eventually became the Sophomore class president. With just that one vote, I had a seat in the Student Council.
