2017 Homecoming

1 Ageless

This year’s Maryknoll/Miriam College Grand Alumni Homecoming saw ‘all out’ performances by the different batches,
making it one of the most vibrant homecomings the school has ever had.

The homecoming is spearheaded by High School Batch ’92, this year’s Silver Jubilarians, in coordination with the Maryknoll/Miriam College Alumni Association and other offices of the school. According to Batch ’92, ‘Ageless’ showcases alumni who are “ageless in mind, body, heart and spirit—women who seek progress and innovation, are courageous enough to reinvent themselves to become catalysts for positive change; women who continue to live the
Maryknoll/Miriam spirit of humble leadership in the service of others, and strive to pass on this legacy to the young women of the Miriam College community.”

The theme also takes off from Project #Ageless, a leadership and Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math
(STEAM) project in collaboration with Miriam College High School.

There were a total of 11 performances, all showcasing the graceful and dynamic performances of each Jubilarian batch. Loud cheers and applause were constantly heard from the audience to show support for classmates who braved the stage with fun numbers done in glittery costumes and colorful wigs. Hosting the program were 80s heartthrobs Jamie Garchitorena and Manolet Ripol.

The event also honored seven Amazing Alumni Awardees in the fields of law, education, medicine, business, and corporate social responsibility. They are (top right photo from left) Dr. Cora-Lou Bacaltos Kintanar, Luisa Villanueva-Villano, Atty. Gabriella Roldan Concepcion, Atty. Marisol De Luna Anenias, Frances Ann Basilio Petilla,
Dr. Jennifer Marie Yang, and Genevieve Rivadelo, PHD,PTRP. Villano and Rivadelo used to teach and hold administrative positions at Miriam College.

Capping the colorful event was the announcement of the winner of a free trip for two to Malaysia, followed by the campus after party where alumni bonded some more and danced the night away.

#MCNow event gathers alumni of Class 1990 to 2016

mcnow2

As part of the 90th year of Miriam College, the Higher Education Unit hosted a special gathering of alumni last March 25, 2017. College and Graduate School alumni, particularly those who graduated in the years 1990 to 2016, were called home to witness the re-affirmation of Miriam College’s commitment to continue the great story started by the Maryknoll Sisters who first established a teacher-training school for Filipino women in 1926. The year 1990 was a turning point in the school’s history when the name of Maryknoll College was changed to Miriam College.

Each College Department hosted a Greatness Talk that featured distinguished alumni who shared stories meant to celebrate, inspire, and bring back memories of how MC was instrumental in their respective success stories. The Miriam College community featured the following alumni: Arlette Alvarado (BS Entrepreneurship), Aiza Mesina (BS Entrepreneurship), Alessandro Rey Formoso (BS Accountancy), Caroline Howard (BA Communication), Bettina Ramos (BS Child and Family Studies), Carlo Desuyo Ebrada (Master in Education, Major in Measurement and Evaluation), Joseph Cruel (BS Business Administration), Kamille Juanson-Tablan (BS Leisure and Tourism Management), Jelen Canzana Paclarin (BA International Studies), Emma Ruth Ramos (BS Environmental Planning and Management), Rosario Rachelle Tansiatco (Associate in Computer Technology), Eric Raymond Ebron (Associate in Computer Technology), Annie Topacio (BS Behavioral Science), and Natalie Sobrecarey-Escaño (BS Behavioral Science).

Later that evening during the COMEX Awards, the College of Business, Entrepreneurship, and Accountancy had for its guest speaker, Department of Tourism Undersecretary Katherine de Castro (BA Communication), who talked about her journey in news and public affairs, a career she pursued after she graduated from Miriam College.

Aside from the MC Greatness Talks, other activities on that special day included a Guided Tour of MC, Bazaar, Job Fair, Alumni Wellness, Day Care, and a Holy Mass to end the daytime event in thanksgiving.

About 600 alumni registered for the #MCNow event, which is expected to happen again in the 95th year of Miriam College.

Planning Session

team building 2

Last February 11, 2017, the MMCAA had its planning session in MC Nuvali. We were warmly welcomed by its Principal and Assistant to the President, Ms. Cynthia Morales, who, together with her efficient staff, made sure we were provided with everything we needed for our planning. From sumptuous meals to a tour of their beautiful campus with its natural airconditioning (we would have kept the windows open instead but the wind was quite strong)and Tagaytay as the background, Ms. Cynthia’s hospitality and graciousness made us feel right at home.

It was wonderful to see the 21 st century science labs and computer center together with creative arts and crafts rooms as part of the learning tools the school provides for its students. With its lush surroundings and modern learning facilities, the MC Nuvali campus is indeed the school conducive to learning. And it was likewise, quite beneficial for us to have had our work done here as it was far from the maddening crowd of the city. Thanks again to Ms. Cynthia for making our planning session an enjoyable one.
