“WE ARE SO happy that we are all here in the grounds where we all grew up… I know that we’re all eager to recollect, reunite, reminisce and remember our classmates, friends, schoolmates, the teacher and our principals,” SUHS alumna and Centennial Committee Chair said during the Centennial Fiesta and Recognition of Teachers last Aug. 25.
Silliman University High School (SUHS) Centennial Fiesta and Recognition of Teachers, a part of the centennial celebration of SUHS, reunited the alumni of batches 1941, 1951- 2016 at the SUHS Grounds.
Millie Ann M. Estolloso, a grade nine student, read a letter to her teachers during the event.
“Dear teacher, I was looking forward to this day all these years, I was looking forward to be back home in this dear old Silliman High Campus, I was looking forward to see you…” Estolloso said.
“Your presence and guidance made a huge difference. You went beyond teaching academic subjects, you guided me… I came here to thank you personally, together with the rest of my classmates, batchmates, and all the other batches.”
According to Evelyn Diones Villegas, SUHS Batch ‘62, she was very excited to join the centennial celebration and to bond with her friends again.
Florante Vicuña from Batch 1963 said, “It’s been fifty-three years since we were here so… It’s nice especially having just met a few friends, a few classmates who just came over after several years.”
Acknowledgment of gifts from alumni batches and awarding of the certificates of appreciation were the main objectives of the event.
Michelle Lynn C. Wilkins, Ms. Silliman Sapphire Headline Girl was also present in the event.
