Last friday, I was able to join the Xavier School community in welcoming 2011's Xavier-Kuangchi Exemplary Alumni Award winners at the Angelo King Multi-Purpose Center. We honored two outstanding Xavierians who have made great contributions in their respective fields. One of them was a proud leader in the scouting organizations of the Philippines, and the other served as a top ophthalmologist, helping a lot of people who can't afford to have eye surgeries.
I created a sculpture for Fr. Zuloaga, to symbolize his lifetime achievement at Xavier School, and to remind him that the entire body of our community supports him and honors his lasting influence. The sculpture was made as the emblem for the Luceat Lux Lifetime achievement award that was bestowed upon Fr. Zuloaga after the two Xavier-Kuangchi Exemplary Alumni Awardees gave their own speeches for the night.
Meeting up with old and new friends like Jan Benedict Yap, Mauro Tongco, and Karol Yee made the night an even more enjoyable experience. I was also able to see some of my old professors like Sir Exxon Yu, Fr. Guy Guibelondo, and Sir James Rivera.
