The CSU High School (CSU Tuguegarao Laboratory High School) Batch 1987, in partnership with the University Alumni Relations and Placement Services (UARPS), hosted its homecoming party dubbed “Passirimmu 2017” on June 10, 2017, at 3 p.m., at Balai Carmela, Alimannao Hills, Caggay, Tuguegarao City.

Bearing the theme: Celebrating 30 years of continuing success, “Passirimmu 2017” gathered 76 members of the batch with five of their former teachers who included Mrs. Norma Castillo, Prof. Romeo Binarao, Prof. German Salvador, Mrs. Conception Dorado, Dr. Protacio Ibuna, and Dr. Celiaflor Maguigad.

The party, which had former Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile as guest and inducting officer, was filled with fun activities, messages from select members of the batch and their former teachers, song and dance numbers and induction of the newly elected officers of the 30-year-old batch.



Other parts that highlighted the event was the inaugural address of the batch president, Lt. Colonel Renato N. Narag, who was sworn into office by Enrile along with the other officers who included: Angelita B. Miguel, vice president for international affairs; Eric Ricamora, vice president for domestic affairs; Chita Ramos, executive secretary; Danny Ricamora, finance manager; Aditha M. Supena, auditor; Arlene Malana, Jomynel Tarayao, and Ruperto Maribbay, members of the board; and Felix Barizo, Eliseo Apostol and Jacqueline Melad, coordinators.

To make the event more memorable, the members renewed their devotion to CSU by reciting in chorus the CSU Pledge of Loyalty. A mix of emotions erupted when the members belted out their official graduation song titled “Climb Every Mountain.”

Wearing their official shirts on which the event and batch title is written, they came with their memorabilia in high school displayed at the door of the homecoming venue. The one who brought in the best keepsake earned a prize.

Dr. Chita Ramos said the party was just a prelude to a grand reunion that the batch is intending to host sometime in December of this year.

“We discussed the matter during our organizational meeting, and we plan to involve other batches,” said Ramos.

She said her batch also included in its plans the request of the CSU administration for the construction of an alumni center that will host a comprehensive conference and training event facility, an alumni house and an office space.

Other plans the batch considered in their initial discussions included scholarships for the children of financially incapable members and a financial support program for members in need.

Batch 1987, through its officers, has committed to assist the administration for the planned center, and will closely coordinate with the University through the UARPS for pledges and donations.
