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.
