In celebration of our Sainted Foundress’ anniversary, we tracked some of our best and brightest, St Marie Eugenie awardees. Graduating from their class with the highest badge of honor that Assumption bestows, they exemplified the virtues of Assumption education.

St. Marie Eugenie was canonized after Assumption congregations throughout the world prayed for a miracle to happen. One last truly indubitable miracle was needed to canonize then Blessed Marie Eugenie. That miracle happened to Risa Bondoc . Dubbed “ the Miracle Baby”, her story is forever intertwined with the sainthood of St. Marie Eugenie.

From court side reporter, to hosting Art Angel, 100% Pinoy, Unang Hirit and Tunay na Buhay, to field correspondent for GMA news to becoming a full blown anchor for 24 Oras weekend (GMA) and Saksi (GMA), her Curriculum Vitae is surely very impressive.
What’s more impressive is that she graduated with the Marie Eugenie Award, Award for Leadership and got an Alfonso Yuchengco Award for National Discipline. A great example of what an Assumption education and MME devotee can accomplish in the field of journalism, meet Maria Pia Concepcion Arcangel Halili, ACHS Batch 1996. She embodies her own adage “To live life simply and inspiring others to do the same”.

March 10…Happy Feast Day, Mother Foundress!
A few weeks ago, we woke up to a different world. We woke up to the unbelievable images of Russian tanks rolling into Ukraine. This unprovoked war, with Ukraine’s home-made Molotov bombs ranged against Russia’s oxygen-sucking thermobaric bombs; with husbands, sons, students defending their homes against battle-trained heavily-equipped military forces, the unfolding David vs Goliath story strikes disbelief and dread.
