A total of 415 students from both campuses have completed their senior high school education.

“As you start a new chapter in life, carry the learning and experiences you have gathered from CMDI, including the friendships and social networks you have built. These learnings will also shape your future and the next chapters of your life,” Founder and Chairman Dr. Jaime Aristotle Alip reminded the graduates.

He also encourages students to continue their studies and obtain their degrees. However, if they need to work, the door of CARD MRI is wide open, and fresh graduates are welcome to join in the mission of eradicating poverty in the country.

Dr. Alip added, “I wish that you will pursue your passion, whatever you want to do with your life, but still, I hope you continue to help us with our mission of empowering Filipinos.”

CARD MRI Managing Director Aristeo Dequito also expressed his gratitude and congratulations to the graduates. “The awards and recognitions received by the graduates not only showcase their excellence but also serve as evidence of the competence of our instructors at CMDI,” he stated.
