Logo & Philosophy

The Fona School logo is a lion. The thinking and reasoning behind it is based on the following quote from Og Mandino:

I will persist until I succeed.
I was not delivered unto this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion [...]
Og Mandino (self-improvement author)

Study at Fona School, and become a lion!
