Impact
FAMILY JEWELS - Michelle Dayrit-Soliven (The Philippine Star) - November 13, 2016 - 12:00am

(Conclusion)

The Assumption spirit continues to thrive through the unique velada tradition. 

“This annual celebration welcomes home many alumni who come from far and near. It is a source of great joy as well as an inspiration to continue living what we have received from our Assumption education,” said Assumption Alumnae Association (AAA) moderator Sr. Remedios Carmen V. Locsin, r.a.  (I am also proud to say that Sr. Remedios was my Grade 2 teacher.)

This year’s meaningful velada, aptly titled Impact, hosted by the Silver jubilarians of AC Batch ‘91, joyfully united the Pearl, Jade, Ruby, Gold, Diamond, Emerald, Blue Diamond and Platinum jubilarians on stage at the Mother Rose Auditorium in a spectacle of songs and dances.

Another highlight of the yearly celebration was the presentation of love offerings prepared by each batch for their school, which consisted of generous contributions from highly organized fundraisers that brought the classmates together for a fun and noble purpose. 

We were so touched by the efforts of AC Batch ‘90 who worked really hard to come up with P2.6 million to support various needs of AC mission schools. Together with the many contributions, more underprivileged students will be able to receive transformative education that Assumption is known for.

Congratulations to all the jubilarians and thank you for your generosity of heart. Inspired by our Mother foundress St. Marie Eugenie, may you continue to transform the world in your own little sphere of influence, creating an “Impact,” by making of this earth a place of glory for God.

(Would love to hear from you at miladayjewels@yahoo.com.)
