A "Changing" Seminar for the Benefit of TF

St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City faculty and staff, together with other students, faculty, parents, businessmen and professionals from Negros, attended an "inspiring" seminar entitled "I Change: Winning Disciplines for Change" by Francis J. Kong at the University of St. La Salle Bacolod last September 22, 2012. 
Tapulanga Foundation, Inc. was one of the seminar's beneficiaries, together with the Kalipay Foundation Scholarship Fund and One La Salle Scholarship Fund. Other speakers were Alex Lacson (Faith in the Filipino), Yeng Remulla (On Starting Something) and Lois Yasay (Starting a Passion Revolution) who were also applauded for their inspiring sharing. The crowd was given the task to make a survey of the things, traits or habits that they want to change and they want to achieve. It was an avenue in gaining tips and techniques establishing DISCIPLINE within Filipinos. Francis J. Kong emphasized that “good people do not retire, they refire” which inspired all especially the SFAS attendees.
