Alumni Updates March 18 – 24, 2019
Silliman University President Dr. Betty Cernol-McCann and her husband Dr. Dennis McCann were in Tacloban City and had a meet-and-greet with the Tacloban Alumni Chapter officers last March 16 at Hotel Alejandro.
Present during the breakfast meeting were Tacloban alumni chapter vice president Prof. Jusie Lydia Siega-Sur, Prof. Eden Jaboli Varela representing the Eastern Samar Alumni Chapter, Ms. Mae Ann Wenceslao, and alumni chapter president Dr. Mike T. Udtohan.
Dr. McCann was updated with the upcoming alumni summer event – Hugyaw Visayas – to be held in Tacloban City April this coming 27 – 29 with the Eastern Visayas Alumni Chapters as hosts.
Hugyaw Visayas promises to be an exciting, history-rich, three-day experience, as historian Rollie Borinaga will personally lead the Balangiga Bells tour. A tour of the MacArthur Park and the San Juanico Bridge as well as a visit to the mat weavers of Basey are also listed in the tour itinerary.
