A homecoming like no other. That was the experience felt by everyone last November 16, 2019 at the OLOPSC gymnasium where the OLOPSC Grand Alumni Homecoming was held with the theme “There’s No School, Like Old School”. Both High School and College graduates attended and it was the first time in OLOPSC history to have both groups in one alumni homecoming under the newly-formed OLOPSC Alumni Association (OAA).
The homecoming event was organized by OLOPSC High School Alumni batch 1994 and was hosted by DJ Eva Ronda from the radio station MOR 101.9. Aside from graduates from different batches, present as well were several members of the Board of Trustees and the OAA officers. The program opened with a heart-warming message by Dr. Armida Salvador Samaniego, OLOPSC President, wherein she acknowledged the presence of everyone in the venue with thanksgiving, especially the OAA officers and the host batch. The night was filled with cheers and laughter as everyone partied over good food and non-stop music of famous local artists–Sue Ramirez, I Belong to the Zoo, Dingdong Avanzado, and the Doorbells sang their hearts out as they serenaded the audience.
Mrs. Rose Editha Salvador Flores, OLOPSC VP for Institutional Affairs and Director for Human Resource and also an alumna, said, “The GAH last November was a memorable night as the high school and college alumni united as one family, one OLOPSC. I admire the efforts of batch ’94 as well as the new set of officers that despite their busy work schedules, they managed to work harmoniously and developed a new friendship. The preparations and the program itself were well organized and I observed all tables from different batches enjoyed every part of the program as they were able to relate to the dances and music. Kudos to the organizers.”
Mr. Gultiano, OAA President, shared his experience at the alumni homecoming, “It was a blast! I enjoyed the night singing along. I personally enjoyed the performance of Dingdong Avanzado, he took me for a trip down memory lane. Sue Ramirez was also the crowd favorite. Overall, it was well-organized and the experience was amazing.”
It was indeed a memorable night for everyone as they were able to reminisce their times together way back when they were still students. Everyone left the venue with joy in their hearts as they were able to come back home to their alma mater.
