Eduardo "wardo" iso
Class of 1966
i was a foreign exchange student from Philippines thru the American Field Service scholarship program in the school year 1965-66. my foster parents were mr. and mrs. lawrence zech. both of have passed away. lanell and terry were my foster sister and brother and Robert mc farlane and mam verda were my " auntie and uncle" Mrs leah gruber was the American Field Service president. i lived with zechs in a dairy farm. i love their place. they took care of me just like their son... even more than that. i have met many friends in the community and in school. dusty koch was close to me because he was the president of the student government..??? my foster parents visited us in Philippines sometime in sept 1980. he was one of the principal sponsors of my eldest son's baptism. it was a great day in our family to meet them. after those years daddy lawrence as i fondly address him, invited me and my wife to visit them in 1998. we were glad on his kind offer... and we met again. we visited many places and met many people, classmates. he gave us many things to bring back to our country. then sometime in 1999-2000, daddy lawrence wanted my eldest son to go to wisconsin to have his cleft lip and palate operated. He was very kind to my family. He also let two of children Carlou and bernadette to go with janry, my eldest son. janry was operated in sauk prairie hospital all free and in coordination with dr. dusty koch, my former classmate. i have said to myself that daddy lawrence was extraordinarily kind to me and my family. he was very thoughtful, loving and loved to crack jokes. there was a time when my wife asked what can we give from the philippines as a gift. and this was what he said," wardo, if you have some blessings from God... share it to those who need it most". " don't bother of thinking what you can give to me".. am old and i have enough from God's blessings"... these words kept ringing in my ears... until now. he changed my outlooks in life. he made me realized that sharing god's blessing to others are jewels which God wants us to follow as we serve others. these past few years i have sponsored 8 students and finished their college courses. they are now working, some are in Italy, Hongkong, Qatar. these people i have helped because of what daddy lawrence told me... when i was still 17-18 years old. just to mention in passing, i am an illegitimate child. i lived with my mama, not knowing my papa... i have not eve seen him. so when i was in wisconsin... it was daddy lawrence who made me feel how nice is having a loving father. i do not know how to live with a papa. it was daddy lawrence who opened my horizons and strengthen me to work hard so i can realize my dreams. i am a chemical engineer, a masters degree holder in physics education and a doctorate student in science education with concentration in industrial and household waste waters. i can talk for years about daddy lawrence. he " light up my life". i am very lucky to have met a man like him, a foster papa like him. I always cherish his stories, his life, our constant writing letters. one time he mentioned in my e-mails.." i got your letter ... but there is no "wardo".. i understood what he meant... i must write using my hands not the computer. and i did. then he just smiled.... i have many stories about Sauk Prairie HS... i dont want to bore you guys. heheheh.. am old,, now 67 years old. am still teaching physics, chemistry and geology courses. it kept me going. i have 4 children, and 3 grand children. Long live Sauk City,.. Long live Sauk Prairie HS... Long live Daddy Lawrence and Marie Zech.. I love them very much. i consider them as my parents as well....
