The acting president of the Law Alumni, Atty. Gerline Alcantara, called for a meeting on August 23, 2008 at Adamson University. Twenty alumni-lawyers were able to attend, thanks to the text message-invitations sent out with the help of Ms. Sonia de Lara, college secretary.
Held at the newly constructed Domondon Room, the meeting was highlighted by the presence and inspirational speech of our beloved Dean Antonio H. Abad, Jr. The Domondon Room was a fitting venue that the Vincentian lawyers deserved to be assembled in; they were truly awed by the sight of the furnished room. Dean Abad explained how the construction of the room was made possible. It was donated by no other than Atty. Abelardo Domondon, one of the 75 recipients of the Outstanding Adamsonian Award on the school’s 75th Foundation Day. The three other recipients coming from the College of Law were Dr. Teresita Sanchez, Atty. Nelson Loyola, and General Chito de los Santos. The members of the Law Alumni were tasked to include among their projects the sponsorship of a similar room for the exclusive use of Junior Law students. The Domondon room is for the exclusive use of the Seniors.
During the meeting, a new set of officers were elected, namely: Atty. Gerline Alcantara (President Emeritus), Atty. Theresa Dizon-Huggins (President), Atty. Jorge Sacdalan (Vice-President), Atty. Leilanie Cabras (Secretary), Atty. Florendo Rallang, Jr. (Treasurer), Atty. Blesilda Ouano (PRO), and Atty. Gigi Eusebio-Cruz (Auditor).
Board members were also designated, namely: Attys. Virgilio Galeon, Rodel Nayve, Pepito Mortel, and Raphael Kenneth Ybañez. The Committee on Falcon Awards and Homecoming was created, with Atty. Dante Corminal as chair. The members are Attys. Judy Anne Lazo-Beluso, Ronald Bersales, and Rolando Cervantes.
Second General Meeting
Last Oct. 4, 2008, a well-attended and successful alumni meeting was held. Lunch sponsored by Dean Antonio H. Abad, Jr. was served prior to the meeting which started at about 1:00 p.m., with the following highlights:
The next meeting is set on November 8, 2008 . All Law alumni are invited—lawyers and non-lawyers alike—to attend. Kindly contact Ms. Sonia de Lara to confirm your attendance at 523-36-77 or 0919-426-5494.
