CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- More than 350 student-leaders from Don Bosco’s schools in Sta. Rosa, Canlubang, Mandaluyong, Makati, Tarlac and Pampanga lauded and thanked Laus Group of Companies (LGC) chairman and chief executive Levy P. Laus for his feat in establishing and building the conglomerate that has been serving the countryside.
The LGC and Laus were chosen by the Bosconian youth leaders as the first part of their study tour and Don Bosco Student Leaders Assembly themed “ProBusko: Propesyon Ko, Buhay Busko” where they were treated to how the automobile dealership came to being on Friday at the Carworld headquarters.
The tour took the young “Busko” to a glimpse of the operations of Mitsubishi Carworld, Corporate Guarantee and Insurance Company, DWRW 95.1 FM, CLTV 36 and Huper Optik among others.
Speaking in behalf of the group, Don Bosco Student Council head Mosche Lacson said they were awed and inspired by what their co-Bosconian has accomplished.
“He [Laus] is an epitome of a good leader from Don Bosco who translated his vision successfully into reality. We have heard and seen the fruits of his labor. He was just a simple Bosconian like us who had dreamed big for his future. We are indeed lucky to have his prestigious presence to show to us the fruits and the outcome of his profession. He truly inspired and touched the lives of present student leaders,” he said.
The aspiring “Busko” youth leader and his colleagues also thanked Laus for “his unselfishness and welcoming them warmly” at Laus Group.
“We thank you for accepting our invitation and for unselfishly sharing and letting us experience your accomplishments. We are so inspired,” Lacson told Laus, who spoke about his favorite guides embodied in the book “Into the Millionaire’s Mind.”
Salesian priest Rector Fr. Ditto Gueco agreed with Lacson and the student leaders as he told Sun.Star Pampanga that Laus ever since lived the life and ways of a true Bosconian.
“He is the best example of a good Bosconian who lived the life and preserved the values, integrity and discipline advocated by St. John Bosco, as he persevered to dream big and pushed for developments in the countryside. His story is indeed very inspiring as we learn, lead and live,” said Gueco.
