Appreciation should not be sought. However, good work attracts goodness and good people. SCMLD is looking for good students to help them become action leaders. The following are some appreciations which came on the way. However, the real appreciation is in the success of our students who will appreciate in value by being valuable to themselves, their families, organisations, the country and the community at large and more particularly the unserved, the under-served and the deprived.
On 14th January 2007, SCMLD broke a world record and entered its name in the Guinness Book of world records. 85 motivated and hard working minds of SCMLD memorized and reproduced 250 random objects and got into that unique world record. Mr. P. Mahadevan of Coimbatore trained them to master this skill. SCMLD will be ever grateful to him and the 85 children who toughened it out.
