    The person, spirit, character, and legacy of Sr. Margarita had made deep and very positive impact on the lives of many, especially to the alumni.

     Her 28 years stint as a principal of the school had been remembered to have perpetuated the legacy of personalized education that propagated the spirit and charism of Mother Foundress-St. Candida Ma. de Jesus. Sr. Margarita had been a formidable pillar of the school who was able to communicate Christ love behind the facade of firmness. She had inspired many alumni to realize their best potentials and become women of character who themselves contribute to the positive change in the society in their respective fields. Her legacy of excellence had served as compass of ethics for the faculty and students who were under her mentorship.

     Sincere love and affection had been felt throughout the tribute for Sr. Marge, as she was fondly called in Sacred Heart.

     I may not have personally met her nor was privileged to be under her mentorship, but I felt edified after hearing the testimonies from the alumni. I am impelled to continue Sr. Margarita’s legacy in the pursuit for character excellence of the young who are entrusted to our care, and in doing so, to remain faithful to the charism of Mother Candida and to our shared mission.
