A special convocation in honor of Mrs. Pura Gabriel-Dumandan, president of Cabanatuan City Association in Los Angeles, California was held at the university courtesy of the administrators of the Support for the Handicapped and Rehabilitation through Education (SHARE) Program on November 9, 2009.
Mrs. Dumandan was accompanied by her brother Bong, sisters Minnie and Lita and brother-in-law Dante de Mesa.
The association donated for the renovation of SHARE classrooms.
Members of the association include United States-based WU-P alumni such as Mr. Eliseo Garcia, Mrs. Aurora Piedad-Garcia, Mrs. Ellen Pascual-Serrano and husband Bob.
President Manuel G. Palomo gave his words of welcome and gratitude to the visitors.
The affair was witnessed by Prof. Gladys T. Mangiduyos, OIC dean of the College of Education, Prof. Mildred T. Ancheta, principal of the Elementary Department, Mrs. Zenaida F. Del Rosario, Wesleyan SHARE board member, Dr. Jonathan M. Salting, Wesleyan SHARE auditor, Rev. Jose M. Flores, university chaplain, along with the SHARE faculty, staff, parents and pupils.
Ma’am Pura said she was inspired to continue their support to the SHARE children and to the program as a whole. She took a look at the newly renovated classrooms and was amazed that WU-P has been able to produce beautiful classrooms with such a “small amount” of money.
She also admired the Elementary Department’s quality of teaching, citing the pupil’s lessons as being “advanced”.
