June 12 is a red-letter day for Zion Evangelical School as it celebrates its 17th founding anniversary.

The school’s Board of Trustees, faculty and staff, PTCA officials, parents and its student population will celebrate as the Zion family reminisce what happened on June 12, 1996, when the school opened its doors to more than 500 students, from Nursery to Second year High School.

Leading today’s festivities is its Founder and President, Dr. Paulino R. Ersando.  The anniversary celebration starts at 9:00 a.m. with the Flag Raising Ceremony.  The program proper will immediately follow at the School’s Multi-Purpose Hall.  Before noon, the guests and well-wishers of the school will be treated with a modest lunch.

Several officials of the school and other guests are lined up to share their testimonies and experiences about the ups and downs of the school during the last 17 years particular during the initial years of operations.  In all of these, it will highlight the faithfulness of God to Zion in its commitment to “Train the students in the way that they should go so that when they grow old, they will not depart from it.”

In the anniversary message of the President, he will acknowledge the sacrifices, loyalty and commitment of the Incorporators and the Corporators of the School, as well as the teachers and parents whose cooperation and fidelity to the cause of Zion educational advocacy had contributed so much for what the school is today.

Bishop Leonardo A. Romero, the Pulpit Minister of the Zion Evangelical Fellowship, will do the Thanksgiving Prayer while the Fellowship Choir will present a very special anniversary song.  Mrs. Esther Nellie E. Hermosa, former School Prinicipal, will act as the master of ceremonies of the day’s celebration.
