Celevel & Lou: Helping Rebuild Bohol's Schools

"We" meant Celevel Ranoco- Butler, her son Breit, her mom the former Evelia Mozo Fostanes and another companion whose name escapes me at the moment

But the gloom that came with the overcast weather was quickly dispelled by the sunny disposition of the mother – daughter tandem of Celevel & Evelia.

I quickly warmed up to the effervescent Evelia who regaled us with her life as a young island girl!

To check on the situation and status of the school rebuilding efforts in Panggangan Island after a devastating 7.2 earthquake knocked down and forced the temporary transfer of the grade school and the secondary school buildings in the island

We were met by the hardworking teachers of the island along with Fr. Lito Masula who briefed us on the prototype of the classrooms that would be built in lieu of the tent and bamboo structures that serve as temporary classrooms for the kids

The highlight of the visit?

Before we went back to Tagbilaran City, Fr. Lito and the school teachers invited us to partake of an island feast of crabs, fish and kinilaw

Wow, the perfect way to wrap up a wonderful day! Cheers!

P.S. Did I mention to you that Celevel is also a Miss Bohol Sandugo titleholder? She won her crown back in the 90’s
