2007 Chairman’s Address

Address from the Chairman 2007, 06 August 2008

06 August 2008


The year 2007 was filled with challenges, namely having to let go of one of our scholars as well as the health of our Chairman Mrs. O. M. Bakker. Offie had a heart problem in February 2007 which resulted in an Angioplasty treatment. Offie recovered in no time at all, and is back in full blast in 2008.


Our first full time scholar at the Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University (DMMSU) San Fernando City, La Union (Schoolyears 2004-2005, 2005-2006, 2006-2007) San Fernando City , La Union, 2nd year Engineering Student. Ronald Rey Hufana, son of a former OFW from Saipan , decided to discontinue his studies because of his obesity problem Attempts to find a suitable scholar at DMMSU proved disappointing and futile. Although in recent months we spent time looking into a school where agriculture and environmental studies are prominent. A good friend, Dra. Asuncion Raymundo, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at UP Los Banos, opened a possibility for FOFI to supporting Junior students who are doing their thesis and research.
