2019 Golden Jubilarians, High School Class 1969, awarded a special donation to St. Paul University Manila and St. Paul Manila Alumnae Foundation Inc. (SPMAFI) at the Homecoming Event on Sunday, January 27th, in Manila. Marilyn Abalos and Patsy Santiago-Schultz, Co-Chairs of St. Paul Manila Alumnae USA, on behalf of HS Class 1969, presented checks of $5,000 each totaling $10,000 to Marionette Ocampo-Martinez for St. Paul University and Sherry Lara-Alingod for SPMAFI that evening.
Patsy Schultz said that the founding members of the St. Paul Alumnae USA were Paulinians of Class 1969 residing in the US. She noted that the donated funds have been dedicated for scholarships, St. Paul Music Therapy Center, and St. Paul community outreach projects. “Established in 2015, our primary mission is to support St. Paul and to connect with Paulinians and build an alumni community in the US and Europe.”
More than 300 Paulinians from different batches, many coming from abroad, trooped to St. Paul Manila on 27 January 2019 for the General Alumni Homecoming, with the theme, “Reliving Dreams: Peace, Love, Harmony, and Understanding,” borrowed from the Age of Aquarius.
From time to time we feature children of our alumnae who have made a name for themselves in their chosen field of endeavor. In this issue, we feature Tara Magboo, daughter of Mildred Dominguez-Magboo (High School 1965), who makes fashion jewelry and has recently been interviewed by the San Diego Voyager Magazine.
From time to time we feature the accomplishments of children of our alumnae. We believe that these young men and women have reached great heights in their careers partly because of the training they had in their growing up years with their parents.
Mrs. Marionette O. Martinez, Institutional Communications and Alumni Relations Officer, and Mrs. Sherry L. Alingod, President of the St. Paul Manila Alumni Foundation, Inc. (SPMAFI) have returned from a two-week mission in the US for the HOPE Ablaze-Senior High School Program.
