LYCEANS From page 8


California on September 11, 2010. One of the highlights of the meeting was the planned publication of a Reunion Souvenir Program to record for poster- ity the beginnings of the LyNA, and as a means to raise funds for the operations of the newly-found alumni association. A Membership committee, chaired by Estela Reyes of Las Vegas, was tasked to spearhead the recruitment drive for new members through personal connections, as well as an aggressive publicity and information campaign through the use of Filipino-American community newspapers and periodicals across America. A Finance committee, chaired by Fennie de la Paz-Geaga, also of Las Vegas, will design ways and means to ensure the fi- nancial viability of the young organization. A Projects committee, chaired by Reg- gie Belen of New York, will formulate proj- ects for the LyNA to consider and approve for implementation. Belen will also be the link with the University management in Manila for other future LyNA projects. A second general reunion of LyNA is tentatively scheduled in the fall of No- vember 2011, with no less than current LPU President Roberto Laurel as guest of honor and resource speaker to create hype, fuel interest, and generate attendance to the Grand Alumni Homecoming in March 2012 and help celebrate the Diamond Anniversary of the founding of LPU. The President of the University Alumni As- sociation, Dr. Victor Endrigo, will also be invited to induct new members into the general alumni association.


The tasks and mission of the newly-


formed LyNA not only focused on the 2012 Grand Alumni Homecoming and obser- vance of the University’s Diamond Found- ing Anniversary, but also to assist and serve as bridge to fulfill LPU’s long-range plans, such as develop and lay the foundation for a Faculty Development Program designed to provide its faculty opportunities for both continuing academic and non-formal education that would enhance relevance and efficiency in instruction, research, and community outreach with the assistance of U.S.-based LPU alumni associations. The LyNA hopes to be able to assist in


the Staff Development Program to ensure that the non-academic support staff will have access to practical on-site exposure and experiences abroad, designed to en- hance the quality of services they render in their respective fields back home. The LyNA shall offer assistance to the LPU management in establishing linkages with institutions and facilities that could provide specialty programs designed to enhance faculty instruction and update technical and professional services for support personnel.


Botengan cited the LPU’s ongoing ef- forts to establish institutional networking with universities offering Hotel and Res- taurant Management career courses like the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV).


Hotel and Restaurant Management is the flagship course offered by LPU. The LPU has also initiated professional relationship with the California State University-Long Beach (CSU-Long Beach) and the Azusa Christian University in California for other university concerns. Other networking ef- forts are hoped to be initiated in the near future with the help of some members of the LyNA.


Kate Botengan affirms the LyNA Re-


union’s motto, “From the Halls of Lyceum to the World,” to challenge other Lyceans all over the universe to take pride in carry- ing the university colors wherever they are, thus, reflecting the success of their Alma Mater in shaping its tens of thousands of graduates and other former students, fash- ioning them into dynamic citizens of the world, and productive members of society- at-large and the communities where they reside.
