College of San Benildo-Rizal main college building to be blessed, inaugurated Friday
The academic community of the College of San Benildo-Rizal in Antipolo City celebrates a season of newness as they inaugurate on Friday, February 1, 2013, in solemn ceremonies the Main College Building along Sumulong Highway.
The academic structure that will be dedicated and consecrated is a testament of the school’s commitment to the Lasallian Shared Mission in providing the youth with a humane and Christian education.
Since its foundation in 1997, the Lasallian Schools Supervision Office (LASSO) administered and supervised the institution which was formerly named San Benildo Integrated School (SBIS). Twelve years later, in 2009, the Lasallian Schools Supervision Services Association, Inc. recognized the excellent education efforts of SBIS.
The graduation from the De La Salle Supervision in 2010 catalyzed the plan of a top-grade higher educational institution set up in the mold of Benildean excellence and Lasallian mission of Christian education, to specifically serve and provide quality tertiary education to the youth.
The college department was then added to SBIS in 2010, consequently changing its name to the College of San Benildo-Rizal (CoSB-R).
The journey that the blessing has taken CoSB-R on today has been significant. The board members, administrators, faculty, staff, students and other stakeholders have been called on to this new academic complex and moved through their new state-of-the-art building – a learning environment that will become ‘second home’ to some of Rizal’s college students.
The inaugural ceremony on Friday will be graced by top government officials from the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), the Provincial Government of Rizal led by Governor Jun Ynares and the City Government of Antipolo headed by Mayor Nilo Leyble. Also attending are the De La Salle Brothers led by former DLSU President Br. Jun Erguiza, FSC, who is also the current chairman of CoSB-R’s board of trustees.
Indeed, this event is the culmination of years of hard work and advocacy for quality and Christian education.
