Ms. Zita Sumagaysay reported to the group that PWU’s Centennial Committee had approved PWU Nursing Alumni of the Philipines president Alice Lopeña’s proposal to invite Sr. Callista Roy, a world famous nursing theorist and author, to deliver the PWU Nursing School’s Centennial Lecture scheduled in February 2019. Mrs. Lyca Benitez Brown shared the PWU Centennial theme of “100 Reasons to be Proud” and invited alumni to email with suggestions for the year-long celebrations and their own reasons why they are proud of PWU.
