NAVAL, Biliran – Graduates in 1986 of the Naval Institute of Technology (NIT) formerly Naval High School and Naval Institute of Technology (NIT) will host the grand alumni homecoming set on September 29, 2011.
In gratitude to their Alma Mater, to their contemporaries, and to all those who have influenced their lives as they reached to where they are now, Batch ’86 is wholeheartedly gathering their efforts in offering the best for the participants in the scheduled grand alumni homecoming.
The day-long activity starts with a thanksgiving mass, followed with a parade around Naval poblacion, a groundbreaking ceremony for the one-classroom building follows, then fun games, raffle draw, and the alumni night for all alumni to enjoy with lots of surprises.
Raffle tickets are sold at P20.00 each with netbook for the first prize, digital camera for second prize, two nights accommodation in Cebu City for the third prize, and 10 consolation prizes of P1,000 worth of grocery items.
Added color to the affair is the “Pasidungog” to deserving alumni who have succeeded in their fields and who have done exemplary contributions to the community as a whole.
Foremost among the thrusts in this year’s grand alumni homecoming is the launching of the “Build a Classroom Project” for the Naval State University (NSU) High School Laboratory.
The project is in line with this year’s alumni homecoming theme of “Paghanduraw, Pagsadya, ug Pagtinabangay”.
Alumni President, Fr. Noel Gayrama, and High School Laboratory Principal, Dr. Rizalina Danao, raised the need for classrooms and facilities for their high school students since 2004 due to the planned phase-out of the secondary department in the university.
Since NSU is the only public school offering secondary education within the town proper of Naval, the plan did not materialize. Thus, PTCA and some government officials helped in providing the needs of the laboratory high school to sustain its operation.
For more information regarding the grand alumni homecoming, interested participants may contract the host batch thru Ms. Levita Sallave-Carba at mobile # 09496594330.
Contributions/Donations may be deposited to Metrobank Naval Account No. 493-3-49321387-4 in the name of Levita Sallave-Carba/Yolando Ho Salomon. (LPT/PIA Biliran)
