She enjoys gardening, farming, housekeeping and engaging in business.
“I am very thankful and blessed for the chance that MVC gave me to serve this community especially, the students. I will consider this work as a challenge, an opportunity and a calling. I am truly happy to work in our institution and to work with the working students and the fast food staff,” Mrs. Aganio said.
Mrs. Aganio is married to Pastor Carlos Aganio, the Vice President for Student Affairs, with whom she has two children: Kyrill Jay, 21, BSN and Carl John, 15, third year high school.

He lists gardening, repairing electrical devices, computer software programming, singing and playing the guitar as his hobbies.
“I did not expect to be a part of MVC’s working force,” Mr. Alboria said. “It is such a blessing and privilege to work here in God’s institution. It is also my desire to impart to the students the knowledge that I acquired in MVC. It is truly God’s providence that led me here,” Mr. Alboria added.

“It was God’s providence that led us here. It is also because of our children that we responded to the call to work in MVC. We want them to grow according to God’s plan and possess the true Christian character. We were inspired by the writings of Ellen G. White that our family should be our first mis-
sionary field,” Dr. Tecson said.
Dr. Tecson is married to Dr. Elvin Rivero-Tecson, a Doctor of Internal Medicine. He is the vice president for medical affairs of the Valencia Sanitarium and Hospital. They have three children: Caleb Emmanuel, 5; Ethen Emmanuel, 4; and Shiloh Nuelle, 2. –By Jediah Bais
