Lorenzo Tañada to be remembered with
first CHIMES Award

Former senator and street parliamentarian Lorenzo Tañada will be remembered and honored at the launching of the CHIMES Award at the Augusto-Rosario Gonzalez Theater at the College of St. Benilde on June 26.

A Eucharistic celebration at 11 a.m. will open the event, to be led by Father Ferdinand Guiang, with a homily to be given by DLSU System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC.

The first CHIMES Award is dedicated to Tañada who perfectly embodied the CHIMES characteristics. In his lifetime, Tañada showed concern for the common good, reflected and upheld honesty and dignity, integrity and meritocracy, valued excellence, and rendered selfless service.

Having earned his place in history, accounts of Tañada’s long and fulfilling life of devotion to his family and public service, deserves to be repeatedly resounded to enrich lives through generations.

The Lorenzo M. Tañada CHIMES Award will be an annual undertaking of the DLSU System. It is established to recognize those who live, exemplify, and promote the values which contribute to the development of teamwork, innovation, competence, and the desire to make a difference in society.

Those who may qualify are any student, faculty, co-academic personnel, alumnus, or administrator (below the level of dean or its equivalent level). Any member of the Lasallian family of the DLSU System may make the nominations. Forms will be available at the Office of the Executive Vice President of each institution starting June of this year and thereafter.

Deadline for submission of this form and other documents pertinent to the nomination is on September 15. The awarding ceremonies will be held on the Feast of Saint John Baptist De La Salle in January.
