ST. JOHN'S COMPOSITE P.U. COLLEGE, SHANKERPURA.
A silently cherished dream of the genius Rev.Fr Alexander Lobo, the then Parish Priest of Shankerpura was realised with heart and soul, with the inauguration of the St. John's P.U. College.
The heavily crowded buses, the high fee profile and the inefficacy of the parents in procuring a seat in the well established colleges, urged the tender hearted Visionary to open a Junior College in this campus. As he is well known to cut a Gordian knot at the risk of his very life, he overcame all the hurdles with the help of the genuine minded parishioners.
'He who seizes the right moment is the right man'. Fr Alexander Lobo encashed the need of the locality and ventured to open the Junior College on 15th June 2006.
Though this Junior College had a humble beginning, the ingenuity of the founder helped the institution to climb step by step, the ladder of success.
'The secret of success is hidden in self-striving', said Abraham Lincon. The tedious task of raising funds for its maintenance was taken up by the Correspondent with the help of the management committee and the generous people. Now the institution is trying to have a steady footing.
