In recognition of 24 May, the day of the Ss Cyril and Methodius, Slavic literature and literacy, and through their disciples, of the Bulgarian alphabet, education and culture, Acronis donated 100 books to St Kliment Ohridski High School in Suhindol. This is the second donation of 100 books for a Bulgarian school for Acronis. The company aims to turn this practice into an annual tradition. 

The 100 titles were chosen by the students and the school management to meet the purposes of the curriculum. More than 135 students will benefit from the donation. 

"Education prepares us for the trials of life: it gives us the strength of knowledge, skills for professional activities, experience in communicating with people and institutions, and lays the foundation for future creative and career development. If education is the way to the future, then the book is the bright window to it. With the 100 Books initiative, Acronis shows that kindness and generosity are the most valuable currency in our insecure world," said Svetlana Ivanova, Director of St Kliment Ohridski. 

Acronis sees the world's woes largely as the result of insufficient knowledge. The company emphasizes the importance of making knowledge more readily available for all to better tackle present-day challenges, and to use education as a tool for changing one's life or escaping difficult circumstances. 

"Reading books helps children better understand the world around them. It lets them build up their moral values," said Plamen Toshеv, Managing Director of Acronis Bulgaria. "Even in the digital era, reading paper books is still important to support a child's imagination, creativity, ability to solve problems and self-respect. That is why we are donating 100 books to a school for the second time and we hope to keep this tradition in the years to come." 

Suhindol, a small Bulgarian town in central northern Bulgaria, has 2,400 inhabitants. The St Kliment Ohridski High School has 150 years of history and cherished traditions. Its mission is to help students succeed, develop, earn, learn and grow. 

Tanya Cherneva, Senior Teacher of Fine Arts, Information Technologies, and Technology, Entrepreneurship and Technical Drawing at St Kliment Ohridski High School, recently won an award by the Bulgarian Association of Information Technology in the Digital Innovators in Education competition. She impressed the jury with her dedication, professionalism, responsiveness and support for students, parents and colleagues.

WHAT IS A GOOD EDUCATION?
What should our children study today in order to be successful adults tomorrow? The question is extremely important – and nobody can give a precise answer. Our lives, technologies and society are changing too fast.

THE NOBLE MISSION OF GOOD EDUCATION
There is no doubt that the best investment is the one in education.
ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS
Quality education is one of the key factors that guarantee a good professional and personal future. No-one is contesting this fact. However, when the topic which education can be considered good is mentioned, the opinions start to differ.
FUTURE TENSE SUCCESS
The success of an individual, an idea or a company is often hard to predict. But if there is a factor that increases exponentially the probability for future success, this is the good education of all involved in the initiative.
THE BIGGEST FORTUNE
When education is discussed, sometimes one can hear the opinion that this part of human development is overrated. The cases of university dropout Steve Jobs and of Steven Spielberg, who has no diploma in directing, are cited as affirmative examples.
RECIPE FOR SUCCESS
Education and the skill to learn and to transfer this knowledge to next generations are in the basis of human civilisation.
LEARNING IN FUTURE TENSE
One of the most edifying anecdotes that has reached us from Antiquity concerns a tragic event: the death of Socrates.
TO LEARN SUCCESS
He who studies will succeed: the old Bulgarian saying remains relevant in the 21st century as well.
THE BEST INVESTMENT
The school, the university, the specialised courses: when we look back in our own past, the choices and chances that we have had and have had not in our education have determined our later life.
