Mr. Vcpierre S. Calunsag
There are two things that define this man’s family and work life: when God healed his wife from salivary gland cancer (papillary cancer) and when God changed him to be His servant.
Mr. Vcpierre S. Calunsag, also known as “Sir Morris”, is presently the Vault Officer at the Office of the Registrar and Admissions (ORA) and his faith in the Lord is not a secret to everyone.
Sir Morris is now in his eighth year as a Silliman employee. He was first hired as Assistant Property Custodian to Mr. Manuel Amistoso, who was then the University’s Property Custodian. “When Sir Manoling (Mr. Amistoso) retired, I was not appointed as the Property Costudian… That time also, Sir Paul Bael, who was then the Vault Officer at ORA, was applying for early retirement so I applied for his position,” shares Sir Morris.
Born on October 11, 1979, Sir Morris hailed from San Francisco, Agusan del Sur. He earned his Bachelor of Business Administration, major in Management at Silliman and is now currently enrolled as a Master of Public Administration student in the University’s Graduate School Programs.
Sir Morris considers every opportunity as a gift from God. “I will take care of this work as this is all for the glory of God,” citing his faith as having the greatest influence in his work.
After work, Sir Morris comes home to his beautiful wife, Mrs. Jan Ellen D. Calunsag, and two children: Ellen Nicole and Vcpierre Jr.
