Hawley Iseke sponsors 4 scholars

Three senior and a first year student are this year’s recipients of a scholarship grant sponsored by a Guamanian, Mr. Hawley Iseke, Jr.

The recipients are Angelo dela Cruz (BSA4), Ayra Baniqued (BSA4), Michael Balagtas (BSAEd4) and Revelyn Yabo (CFY).

A graduate of AB Communication Arts, magna cum laude, in the University of Guam, USA, Mr. Iseke said he wanted to share to CLSU students the blessings that he is enjoying.

He is half-Filipino and half-Guamanian who chose CLSU students to be the recipients of his program because of his close association with the CLSU Office of Student Affairs, particularly to the Student Cultural Society, and the former OSA dean Dr. Zenaida M. Serna.

Mr. Iseke visited the university last July 15-18 to meet his scholars who were presented during the July 16 flag raising ceremony.

This is the second year of implementing this scholarship grant. Last school year, he sponsored two senior AB Development Communication students, Arlene Solomon and Flordeliza Marquez who are now gainfully employed.

In his four-day stay in the Philippines, Mr. Iseke visited the friends he met when the Student Cultural Society performed in Guam in 2005 and 2006.
