President J.M. Ballenger Commends LSF Board

On the Foundation's Contributions to Aruba

It is a great pleasure for me to extend on
behalf of Lago Management our congratula-
tions to the Board of the Lago Scholarship
Foundation as they enter their 20th year of
granting scholarships to deserving Aruban
students who wish to further their studies at
universities abroad.
As you know, one of our objectives as a
business enterprise is to make a reasonable
return on the shareholders' investment. How-
ever, besides this goal, Lago as a corporate
citizen is also interested in promoting the de-
velopment and welfare of the Aruban people
and the Aruban community. With this ob-
jective in mind, in 1957 Lago's Management
established the Lago Scholarship Foundation. Through this means the Company
could, in a significant way, assist the community with the development of Aru-
ban professionals.
Recognizing that the most important asset of any country is its people, we
consider it essential to promote the professional skills of the Aruban people as
much as possible, so we can all work together toward a better Aruba. In this
light, I can say that Lago intends to continue its financial support to the Lago
Scholarship Foundation so that it can carry out its important work in the future.
As you will read in this issue especially dedicated to the Foundation, many
who studied under the Foundation's sponsorship are now occupying responsible
positions in Aruba, both outside and inside the Company.
Finally, I wish to take this opportunity to congratulate all of those students
who have made good use of their Lago Scholarship Foundation grants.
I also want to express a word a praise to their parents and school authorities
who have undoubtedly helped shape their character and provided them with the
necessary guidance and moral support to complete their education abroad.

President Ballenger Ta Comenda Directiva di LSF

LSF Graduate Edna Farro

Joins Lago as Aruba's First

Female Chemical Engineer

On July 5, 1976, Edna L. Farro join-
ed Lago as an Engineer in Techni-
cal's Energy Conservation Group.
Edna in May this year obtained her
B. S. degree in Chemical Engineering
from the University of Tulsa, Oklaho-
ma. She is the first female student
to receive this technical degree while
studying with a Lago Scholarship
Foundation grant and Aruba's first
female engineer.
From 1963 to 1966, Edna attended
the Montgomery Elementary and Ju-
nior High School in Montgomery,
West Virginia, and from 1966 to 1967
Filomena College in San Nicolas.
Subsequently, she attended Cole-
gio Arubano, where she received her
HBS-III and HAVO (Math) diplomas.
After completion of HBS in 1972 she
was admitted to the university where
she first followed the Chemistry cur-


na Farro followed her father's footsteps
and became a chemical engineer.

riculum but changed to Chemical En-
gineering in 1974.
Edna, 21, is the daughter of Ray-
mundo Farro, Division Superintendent
of Technical's Process Technical Ser-
vices Division.
Edna's initial assignment at Lago
is in the Energy Conservation Group
where she will be primarily involved
in conducting unit energy surveys and
developing efficient operating guide-
lines. Edna will also be contact en-
gineer on furnaces with the ENCON
furnace team to gain practical expe-
rience in combustion technology.


Lago Scholarship Foundation Enters 20th Year
Of Service in the Development of Aruban Professionals

Our Cover People...

The pictures on the cover represent
a cross-section of professionals who
obtained their degrees with financial
assistance of the Lago Scholarship
Foundation. On the occasion of the
20th consecutive year that the LSF
is awarding scholarship grants, we
asked these professionals the follow-
ing questions :

"What has the Lago Scholarship
Foundation meant to you?"

Here are their replies :


graduate, received his scholarship
in 1957. Attended the Pennington
Preparatory School. Obtained a Ba-
chelor of Architecture degree from
the Oklahoma State University. A
construction technician at the Gov-
ernment Public Works, he is cur-
rently supervising the expansion
project of the new Government
Hospital. He privately owns an
architectural firm and has design-
ed and constructed schools, office
buildings and several homes on
the island.

"Without the Lago Scholarship
Foundation I would not have been
able to begin and eventually com-
plete a higher education.
Not to discredit those who follow-
ed on the Board, but rather to give
special recognition, I would like to
mention the pioneers on the LSF
Board at that time, the late W. H. Mes-
kill and E. F. Welch, L. D. Dittle, and
also J. H. Beaujon. They were, in
their special way, the guiding light
during my school days.

I hope the foundation will continue
to be that driving force so much
needed by students all over to en-
able them to pursue more knowledge
not only for personal satisfaction, but
even more for the benefit of the whole
(Continued on page 9)

July 1957 marks a turning point in the history of Lago and, in many ways, in
the life of many professionals on the island. On this date, the Company began
contributing to the future development of career people in the community
through the establishment of the Lago Scholarship Foundation. This impor-
tant step was taken to provide aspiring students with the funds necessary to
further their education abroad. Now, for the 20th consecutive year, this foun-
dation continues awarding scholarship grants to a number of students seeking
a university education. In this way Lago is assisting in the fulfillment of the
Island's need for more local professionals and other technically-trained people
for the benefit and progress of Aruba.
The foundation statutes were signed on March 22, 1957. The signatories of
the statutes were the then Lago President Odis S. Mingus, General Manager
Frederick W. Switzer and Superintendent of Staff and Services Frank C. Do-
novan. Shortly thereafter, on July 29, 1957, the first Board of Administration
was installed with the following members : F. C. Donovan, chairman; M. E.
Fisk, vice-chairman, B. T. Henriquez, treasurer; W. H. Meskill, secretary; F. H.
Ritfeld and E. F. Welch, members. Mr. B. T. Henriquez, retired director of
the Caribbean Mercantile Bank, N.V., has served as treasurer of the Board
continuously since 1957, and will complete twenty years on the board on July
29, 1977.
Until 1971, the Foundation functioned with a Board of Administration and a
Selection Advisory Committee. Since then, the committee's screening and
recommendation functions have been taken over by the Board with staff assist-
ance from the Training Section of the Employee Relations Department.
The response to the announcement of the Lago Scholarship Foundation was
overwhelming the first year. A total of 40 scholarships were granted, 16 for
study in the U.S.A., and 24 for further education in Holland, completely exhaus-
ting the funds budgeted for the 1957 1958 school year. Eager candidates
were asked to apply for a scholarship grant the following year, resulting in 22
grants in 1958 .
Of the original recipients in 1957, sixteen returned to work for Lago, while
six others came back to work somewhere else on the island. Six of the origi-
nal group are still working for Lago. Those who obtained a college degree
are: Amred A. Britten, a mechanical engineer currently working as Sr. Engi-
neering Associate in Technical Project Development Division; Bertrando E.
de Cuba, a chemical engineer, assigned to Technical MCS as a Computer
Control Applications Engineer, and Rosendo Nicolaas, who has a degree in
Commerce and Economics and is Section Head Plans in Employee Relations
Department. The others are : Basil Schmidt, who completed a one-year Elec-
tronics course and who is presently a Tug Captain in Process Oil Movements,
Floating Equipment; Alfonso Steenen, a Coordinator in Technical Crude &
Products Coordination and Loreto Kock, a Senior Coordinator in the same di-

Lago Scholarship Foundation Enters 20th Year
Of Service in the Development of Aruban Professionals
(Continued from page 3)
The largest number of scholarship awards was granted in 1964 when no less
than 46 ambitious young people got the opportunity to attend a university
abroad. As of July 1, 1976, a total of 343 individuals have been granted scholar-
ship assistance 142 for study in the U.S.A., 192 in Holland, three in Puerto
Rico and 6 in CuraQao. These scholarship represents over $1,500,000.- of total
money invested in the students' education, excluding administrative expenses
related to the foundation's work. Of the 344 LSF recipients, 188 have graduated,
while 37 are still studying (22 in the U.S.A., 14 in Holland and 1 in Curacao).
The Foundation's contribution to the Aruban community has been significant.
Of the 188 LSF graduates, 136 returned to work in Aruba. Today, 83 occupy
responsible positions in the community 26 of them at Lago. The other 51
left the island after working here for some time. Several of them hold key po-
sitions in industries in the Caribbean area, U.S.A. and Holland. The varied
careers of the LSF graduates include : many engineers, teachers, nurses, la-
boratory technicians and accountants. The Lago Scholarship Foundation also
"produced" Aruba's first local female physician Dr. Eileen Paalman de Cu-
ba, a government-appointed school doctor who recently left for Holland; our
first local anesthetist, Mr. Ernesto F. De Kort, who is employed in the San Pe-
dro Hospital; a lawyer Mr. Cesar Giovanni Maduro of the law firm Maduro
& Brown; the first Aruban female accountant Miss Maria Maduro, employed
in Lago's Controller's Financial Section, and most recently, the island's first
female engineer, Miss Edna Farro, who recently received her chemical engin-
eering degree from the University of Tulsa, and has been employed in Lago's
Technical Energy Conservation Group. Other recent graduates include a tea-
cher specialized to work with mentally retarded children and a speech specia-
list to work with deaf-mutes.
The Lago Scholarship Foundation's share in the island's welfare cannot on-
ly be measured by those students who have obtained a college degree. Even
among the 116 scholarship recipients who did not complete their college edu-
cation, there are 23 who returned to Aruba and obtained a better position than
they would have had if they had not attended college for one or two years.
In fact, about half a dozen of them fill very responsible jobs, both at Lago
and in the community. Most Lago Scholarship recipients in some way or the
other have progressed and have contributed towards the welfare of Aruba and
Lago through their advanced education.
Eligible for a Lago scholarship are florin-paid employees, their legally recog-
nized dependent children, children of Lago annuitants or deceased employees
or annuitants. Also eligible are persons who were born in Aruba of Aruban
parents and who have received the major part of their education on the island.
Additional requirements for applicants include scholastic achievement, demon-
strated sound character and qualities of citizenship. There is no age restric-

o LSF Enters 20th Year...
s (Continued from page 6)
a In the first few years of the foundation's existence, most scholarship candi-
n dates came from HBS-3 or the MULO schools on the island. With the higher
a- education system on the island at present, primarily graduates of the Colegio
1- Arubano (VWO and HAVO) or equivalent are considered for financial assist-
a ance. LSF's present policy for granting scholarship for engineering programs
S is to only consider candidates who will be studying at the technical universi-
ties in Holland; THS-Delft, THS-Eindhoven and THS-Twente.
Scholarship grants are based on the student's record, his citizenship, the
application of his course of study to Aruba's needs, school recommendation,
and the likelihood of his completing his study program while meeting the foun-
dation's established standards.
o Grants are awarded for one school year, and are renewable each year de-
pending on the student's academic performance. The Training Section main-
tains the necessary contacts with the students and their school. Students who
i do not meet the foundation's standards are encouraged to increase their efforts.
Should they still encounter academic difficulty after a certain period, they are
n placed on probation. The scholarship aid is discontinued if the student is dis-
i missed by the school or if he does not meet the LSF standards.
y Other Lago Scholarship Foundation services provided by the Training Section
include arrangements with the students to attend the Lago Summer Training
Program for College Students and any other counseling or guidance in chang-
ing their chosen field of study.
Handling all these matters in the Training Section are Section Head Carlos
Z. de Cuba and Training Coordinator Stefford Courtar.
The present Lago Scholarship Foundation Board of Administration consists
of: Ph. R. Griffiths, chairman; E. B. Hodges, vice chairman; B. T. Henriquez,
treasurer; C. Z. de Cuba, secretary, and L. S. F. Anjie, J. T. Croes and R. F.

.... To me the Lago Scholarship
Foundation means an institution of
Lago Oil & Transport Company which
opened new doors in my life. All I
have learned, and all I am today I
owe to the Lago Scholarship Foun-
dation. From the beginning, the
Board recognized my learning abili-
ty and encouraged me even by
giving me extra classes in math -
to help me advance.
Finally, they put all their trust in me
by granting me a scholarship so that
I could continue my education in the
U.S.A. Otherwise, it would never

larship Foundation in 1959 covered
transportation costs to Holland where
I studied nursing. After receiving my
diploma, I got further assistance from

the Lago Scholarship Foundation in
1963 to obtain my district nurse qua-
lification. The assistance I received
from the Lago Scholarship Founda-
tion has helped me not only to ob-
tain a profession but also contribute
towards the development of the Aru-
ban Community."


NATA received an LSF grant in
1968. She studied at the Social

dian Council where, among other
things, she reports directly to the
Department of Justice on guardian-

"The fact that a petroleum industry
such as Lago is concerned with the
social problems in Aruba is a very
positive aspect. Lago's contribu-
tion in helping to solve these pro-
blems by giving a scholarship for so-
cial work study is to be appreciated.

a Pharmacist at Botica Aruba.

"The scholarship I received from
the Lago Scholarship Foundation was
of tremendous importance to me, be-

Rector of Colegio Arubano
Richard Harms Expresses
His Opinion on the LSF
"Aruba, with few educational possibi-
lities, has a great need for qualified peo-
ple in all fields. Aruban parents spare no
trouble to enable their children to obtain
maximum education. However, we are
very dependent on foreign countries which
involve very high educational costs. The
Lago Scholarship Foundation has brought
U.S. education within reach of those with
less financial means.
As a member of the LSF Board I wit-
ness from close-by the care and devotion
dedicated to the preparation and follow-
up of each scholarship application in light
of Aruba's needs. The pictures of LSF
graduates we see in the Esso News fre-
quently are proof of a sound investment.
As rector of Colegio Arubano I wish to
extend sincere congratulations to the
Foundation on its 20th award year and
give thanks for the assistance our ex-stu-
dents enjoy annually. Partly through this
financial support an even larger group of
our population is given the opportunity
to develop educationally. Colegio Aruba-
no also wants to thank the Foundation for
the cooperation in providing information,
tests and entrance applications for U.S.
institutions. I hope the LSF will continue
to contribute its share toward a fine fu-
ture for our "dushi" Aruba for many years
to come."

"Studying with a Lago Scholarship
has been a most rewarding experien-
ce to me. I always wanted to study
medicine, but my economical situation
did not allow me to pursue such an
expensive career. The Lago Scholar-
ship Foundation came to my rescue
by granting me a scholarship to stu-
dy nursing in Holland. This nursing
diploma provided me with the oppor-
tunity to obtain a degree in anesthe-
siology at the Allentown General Hos-
pital in the U.S.A. in 1963. Without
the Lago Scholarship Foundation as-
sistance my dream would never have
come true. The financial help was
tremendous, and I will always be
grateful for this great opportunity af-
forded me."

To the question "What does the La-
go Scholarship Foundation mean to
you?" we received the following re-
plies from the three employees who
were awarded a scholarship in 1957
and who eventually obtained a college
degree (see page 6).

Amred A. Britten "The scholar-
ship education afforded me with the
skills and disciplines which were ne-
cessary for better opportunities and
advancement in my work assignments
and life situations. While in school,
I had the occasion to experience life
on my own and in a different country
which had customs and a way of life
which were quite new to me."

Bertrando E. de Cuba "A 1957
LVS graduate, I received a Lago scho-
larship to attend a one-year prepara-
tory course at the Woodstock Country
School in South Woodstock, Vermont.
Because of my financial position at
the time of my graduation in 1958, I
was unable to continue on to college.
I am very grateful for the Lago
Scholarship Foundation for giving me
the opportunity to further my educa-
tion. The preparatory course served
to strengthen my desire and determi-
nation to obtain a B.S. degree in Che-
mical Engineering with another Com-
pany scholarship in 1968."

five-year study was with a Lago
Scholarship grant. He graduated
In 1968, and Is currently a partner

"I feel that most of the students on
a scholarship do not completely rea-
lize in what a privileged position they
are. This is understandable because
most students begin their college edu-
cation at a young age.
A student's sole concern is to re-
ceive his check in time. It is only
when he starts working that he rea-
lizes the value of a scholarship. And
I was no exception to this.
Though Lago, as a private enter-
prise, has no obligation to assist
young Arubans financially with their
education, it is difficult to imagine
our community without the Lago
Scholarship Foundation. It would de-
finitely be a loss to Aruba it this
foundation would stop to exist."
EDNA L. FARRO, Chemical En-
gineer (see page 2).
"The Lago Scholarship Foundation
gave me the opportunity to pursue
an interesting career. The college
education enabled me to meet peo-
ple from different backgrounds, learn
to live with them, know them, under-
stand them and appreciate them."

milestone, commemorative plaques were presented to the Amerl-
can Consulate and to Lago. On behalf of the Company, President
J. M. Ballenger accepts the plaque from Government Adviser Be-
tico Croes. In picture at right, Mr. Ballenger in his office with the
