District Brothers join the celebration
the other hand, Provincialate Director Brother Armin Luistro,
FSC, noted that more than a time of festivity, the Greenovation
should celebrate the 100 years of Lasallian presence in the
country. He added that a real search be done by every member
as to how he can be more responsive to the needs of the nation.
In the next 10 years, projects, programs, and activities will
be mounted to create awareness of the centennial celebration
in all Lasallian institutions. These will be spearheaded by
three committees created by the Executive Committee of Centennial
One of the major projects for the centennial anniversary is
the Legacy Centennial Fund Campaign. Spearheaded by the Finance
Committee, this fund-raising campaign encourages the University’s
alumni and donors to participate by asking them to give a
regular donation for ten years.
The Education and Awards Committee intends to pursue a Centennial
Book which will be done by the Bienvenido Santos Creative
Writing Center. Notable writers such as Dr. Cirilo Bautista,
Dr. Isagani Cruz, Dr. Marjorie Evasco, and Connie Maraan,
have been tapped for the project. Aside from this, the committee
also proposed a world-class national center for teachers’
education which will offer both degree and non-degree programs.
Headed by Brother Andrew Gonzalez, FSC, the Cultural and Historical
Committee plans to put up an interactive exhibit on the DLSU-Dasmariñas
campus, featuring a CD-ROM collection of all alumni from 1911-2011
and an updated video on the DLSU System and its evolution.
Aside from the exhibit, the committee also proposes to commission
a sculptor to do the centennial monument and world renown
composer Lucresia Kasilag to compose the music for the centennial
mass and hymn for 2011.
