Sumalatha being commended by Mr. Vishnu, Headmaster, Matendla School

Matendla School helped create history for RDF through a landmark achievement by one of their girl alumnus.  K. Sumalatha became the 1st girl in RDF history to be hired as an Excise Constable! Not only that, she is also the 1st girl in this position in mandal too! This is a tremendous achievement for a girl who had to drop out of Intermediate as her parents lacked the financial means for her to continue her education. She learnt tailoring to help support her family. The school’s Headmaster, Mr. Vishnu and Physical Education teacher, Mr. Laxminarayana, advised the parents to let her appear for the Physical and Written tests for this position as she was good in sports in school. The P.E Teacher personally supervised her practice sessions which allowed her to clear the challenging and grueling physical examination. Sumalatha is now a beacon of hope and determination for many RDF girls!!
