Cuevas-Vicente is the founder of Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila School. From my first impression, it seems that she is a well-respected lady. When she speaks, everybody listens. Why? I
noticed that she speaks from the heart.
I was able to gather a
compilation of the essential things about her. Do you want to get to know more

Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila School
is a dream made into reality through the person of MRS. LYDIA CUEVAS-VICENTE, an educator
who believes in the love of God and the goodness of man.
Coming from a humble family of
the late Teodoro Cuevas and Natividad Mariano, Mrs. Vicente first saw light on
September 5, 1938 in San Mateo, Rizal. On June 15, 1967, she was married to Mr.
Clementito Vicente, also a native of San Mateo, Rizal. They were blessed with
four sons and a daughter.
Mrs. Lydia C. Vicente obtained her Elementary Teacher’s Certificate
with Honors and her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Philippine
Normal University. In 1966, she became a faculty member at the Ateneo de Manila
University and co-authored a series of
Filipino and Mathematics textbooks . She
wrote several volumes of modules and
learning materials for preschoolers .
In 1986, the EDSA Revolution
left in Mrs. Vicente a strong desire to help change the worsening condition of
the country. After a five-day retreat, she understood that with her gift of
being an educator, she can develop young
Christian leaders and be catalysts of change in society. Thus, the founding of Lorenzo Ruiz de Manila School
(LRMS) in 1990.
And in just a few months time, it will be a grand day as we celebrate our 30th Year Anniversary in February 2020! To God be the Glory.
