During the 1990’s, the faculty of Rufo dela Cruz Memorial School (RCMS) solicited funds to put up the gates and concrete fence of this elementary school from various sources — charity groups, politicians, alumni, etc. To show their gratitude, they engrave the names of the donors.
The gate in the photos is at the east side of the school. It says Donated by Jesus Peres on the upper part; the lower part gives more information that this person was the Municipal Mayor of Tubod, Lanao del Norte from 1964 to 1971. He passed away years ago; people may forget what he did for this town but at least the residents and the new generation of pupils would remember his name.
