Bulacan Farmer's Son Going to Harvard

Two Filipino students from International School Manila - Philippine Scholarship Program are a part of a group of students who are heading to Ivy League schools in the US. Romnick Blanco will attend Harvard. Another scholar, Jessica Cuadro, is the daughter of a policeman. She is going to Columbia University. Romnick is the seventh of nine children of a farmer who works the land in the foothills of the Sierra Madre in Bulacan. His father, Renato works as a vegetable and rice farmer. Just getting to public school made him reliant on his own two legs. On Saturdays, he walked two hours each way in the other direction so that he could study English at the GreenEarth Heritage Foundation’s Learning Center. On one occasion, he nearly drowned when he crossed a river during the rainy season. The GreenEarth leaders were impressed by his determination that they encouraged Romnick to vie for a place at ISM under the Philippine Scholarship Program. He passed the qualifying exam with flying colors. Rom scored 99% in Reading, 94% in Vocabulary and 93% in Math Concepts, ranked among the top 10 of the batch. When ISM’s Director of Admissions and Advancement, Stephanie Hagedorn, asked Romnick’s father five years ago what he wishes for his son to gain from the scholarship, he answered, “I want the best for my son, but what is important is that he stays humble.” His five years at ISM culminated in a full scholarship to Harvard covering tuition, accommodation, flights and even clothing to help him through the New England winter. Romnick is proud of his origins, loves his family and community and wants to use his Harvard education to help him serve his country one day. ISM’s scholarship program has been helping Filipino children for more than fifty years, but Romnick has proven that he is one of the most worthy recipients of its help.
