Creating awareness as one of the prevention strategies is very important and I hope for more support from our brothers and more collaboration with other Catholic schools in our area. Thank you for your support behind the scenes and in empowering us CCP students. I do appreciate it a lot. Best regards to all my professors and CCP staff.”
