BURLINGAME (Bay Area, Calif.) -- The officers and members of the Arayat Association of Northern California came in full force Saturday, Nov. 16, for a day of camaraderie, fellowship and fun as they celebrated the association’s 35th anniversary and feast day of Arayat’s patron saint, Catherine of Alexandria, at this city’s Embassy Suites.
For many years, the AANC -- whose members trace their roots to Arayat, Pampanga -- has generously extended help to the Kapampangan community, providing its residents with some of their basic needs.
An estimated 150 foreign teachers, composed mostly of Filipinos, have been notified by the Maryland's Prince George's Country school system that it has no plans to sponsor temporary work visas or permanent residency at the end of the current school term.
The decision, contained in letters sent to the affected teachers, means that they may have to leave when their visas expire around August.
The foreign teachers were among more than 1,000 highly-qualified teachers recruited mostly from the Philippines since 2004 to meet the shortage of teachers in math, science and for students with special needs.
