BATTAMBANG. On 16 July 2012, a mass was held in Our Lady of the Assumption Parish for 9 students who stayed in Msgr. Tep Im Student Center (POY BORAT (English), CHHOUN KOUNNY (Information Technology), THA PESITH (English), NOUN KOEMNY (Information Technology ), CHEA KANTEY (Teacher), HOUN BUNRA (Nuclear Engineering), KOE CHIVA (Accounting), OUERN YOUS ( NURSE), NPIN SOPHOAN (Information Technology ) . These students will graduate from university at the end of this term. Msgr. Kike, Fr. Pedro, and Fr. Manoj celebrated the mass.
During the mass, Fr. Kike shared in his sermon. “I congratulate the 9 students who are graduating from the university. I have three main points that I want to share with you. First, as you leave the student center, please bring the values that you’ve learned while staying there, with you outside. Try to live in as good a way as you can. Second, try to make your community strong with other people. The last point is that you should share whatever you have learned to help develop the society around you.”
One of the graduating students, and a youth leader, Borath said: “I would like to say thank you so much to Msgr. Kike who had given us a scholarship to stay for 4 years in the Tep Im center. In the center, we were provided our tuition fees, food, and a place to stay. I would also like to thank Fr. Pedro Gomez and Mr. Noun Chomroun, on behalf of my fellow students, for always taking care of us and supported us in our needs. We promise to stay in touch with Tep Im Center even after we leave. If we have good experience with our work, we will also share this to the students who are still staying in the center. We will also try to live as good citizens in our society.”
