PWU started off the New Year with a First Friday Mass, held at the PWU Chapel last January 4, 2019. The community mass marked the 48th death anniversary of Conrado F. Benitez, one of the “seven wise men’ who drafted the 1935 Philippine Constitution, fondly remembered as “Daddy B” by generations of PWU alumni. In addition, the mass was held in memory of the following PWU alumni who recently passed away: Rosalina Montecillo Sagullo, Lourdes Silvestre Villaflor, Lorna Santos Obsuna, and Aurora Tulio Siapuatco. A remembrance luncheon followed, attended by several members of the PWU community, during which the Siapuatco family turned over a sizeable donation to the PWU Centennial Fund in honor of the late Mrs. Siapuatco, former President of the PWU Alumni Association (1991-1993). Their donation will go toward improving the facilities of the PWU School of Hospitality Management which is the offshoot of PWU’s famous Home Economics program.
