Instead of saying that man is a creature of circumstances, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circumstance. It is character, which builds an existence out of circumstance. From the same material one can build palaces, another hovels, one a warehouse, another a villa. Bricks and Mortar are mortar and bricks until the architect can make them something else. "IT IS ONLY BY LABOUR THAT THOUGHT CAN BE MADE HEALTHY AND ONLY BY THOUGHT THAT LABOUR CAN BE MADE HAPPY"
Rev. Dr. Francis Rebello S.J. was the first Principal of St. Joseph's Evening College in 1972. He was appointed with the sole purpose of building up the new College. It was a herculean task with a few teachers and students not all of whom were accustomed to study or discipline. But being possessed of the requisite academic and administrative qualifications, he did a splendid job. In addition to academics he encouraged extra curricular activities. Students were encouraged to participate in inter-collegiate sports and games. For 4 years, from 1972-76 he shouldered the responsibility of this new institution setting up new traditions and a high standard. By his hard work and self-sacrifice, he was an inspiration to the staff and students of the Evening College. Source : http://www.sjec.edu.in/history.htm
