Mekeni Food Corporation led by its president Prudencio Garcia (leftmost, center photo) recently recognized 174 outstanding students who are children and dependents of its employees. Coming from elementary, high school and tertiary levels of education and locations, the students were given cash incentives and medals. The recognition was a hybrid program where only the parents were at the venue while children were on Zoom.
The Galing ng Batang Mekeni Award started in 2007 and is aimed to motivate families in appreciating the hard work of their parents and for children to value the importance of education in improving their lives.
Mekeni founders Tatay Felix and Nanay Meding , both former educators, have given high premium on the importance of education in one’s chosen career.
