LSF Attains Twenty
Years of Service
To Aruban Community
Twenty years ago, on March 22,
1957, Lago Management established
the Lago Scholarship Foundation, re-
cognizing that the development of a
community rests with its people and
their development. Through this
means, the Company wanted to as-
sist, in a significant way, the Aruban
community with the development of
Aruba professionals who upon gra-
duation would return to the island
and help build a better Aruba.
Over the 20-year period, the Foun-
dation helped mold the professional
careers of some 340 Aruban resi-
dents, including 141 who studied in
the USA, 190 in Holland, 2 in Puerto
Rico, and 6 in Curacao. Among those
who today serve the Aruban commu-
nity you will find physicians, pharma-
cists, lawyers, teachers, nurses, en-
gineers, accountants, and other pro-
fessionals who, together with the rest
of the community are working toward
the development and progress of the
island. The majority of the gradua-
tes today occupy responsible, mana-

The Company recognizes that the
most important asset of any country
is its people, and will therefore, as a
responsible corporate citizen conti-
nue its financial support to the Lago
Scholarship Foundation so it can con-
tinue to carry out its important work
of service in the development of Aru-
ban professionals for the benefit and
welfare of the Aruban community.
On Sunday, March 20, the Scholar-
ship Foundation presented a special
program on Tele-Aruba to commemo-
rate its 20th anniversary. During the
program several Aruban professionals
who studied under the Foundation's
program were interviewed.
