Greenovation Opens
Centennial Fund Drive

With the launching of Greenovation, De La Salle University-Manila gears up for more extensive scholarship and research programs that will set the direction of tertiary education in the country for the next 10 years.

De La Salle University System President Brother Rolando Dizon, FSC, revealed the University’s vision during the launch ceremony last November 29 at the Marian Quadrangle. Attending the activity were La Salle’s donors, administration, outstanding alumni, faculty, students, and members of the media.

Br. Roly said the two primary goals of La Salle are to make Lasallian educational services accessible to poor but deserving students and to further strengthen the University’s research culture.

The event, which carried the theme “Teaching Minds, Touching Hearts: A Hundred Years of Lasallian Education in the Philippines,” marked the beginning of the 10-year countdown to DLSU’s centenary in 2011. As part of the launching ceremony, representatives of the various sectors of the Lasallian community shared their insights and experiences, as well as their hopes and dreams, for the University.

In her welcome remarks, Dr. Carmelita Quebengco, DLSU-Manila executive vice president, noted that Greenovation stands for the basic ideals of Lasallian education, that is, excellence and service. She called for unity and cooperation as Lasallians take the path to a meaningful faith.

Provincialate Director Brother Armin Luistro, FSC challenged the La Salle members and partners to support the country’s youth-at-risk by taking part in programs that would benefit public schools and promote continuing adult education.

Vice President for Academics and Research Brother Andrew Gonzalez, FSC shared a brief history of La Salle’s role in Philippine education. For his part, Vice President for Development and Alumni Affairs Brother J. Benedict, FSC paid tribute to alumni and donors who have made possible the tremendous growth of the University in the past 90 years.

Batch 2000 Star Scholar Adolfo Amosco represented the student body, expressing the unique experience of being part of the University.

The program featured a laser show that tells of La Salle’s glorious history. It also showcased the groundbreaking ceremony for the time capsule which contained the signatures of La Salle community members and a declaration of DLSU-Manila’s vision for 2011.

The program was hosted by alumni Edu Manzano (GS ’69) and Cynthia Patag (BA ’99). The press conference-honorary dinner that followed was moderated by GMA Network’s Vice President for Radio Operations and TV news anchor Mike Enriquez (AB-BSC ’73).
