The SOE Alumni Homecoming Gala was a success with a blast from the past to the present on Monday, January 30, 2012 at the SBPA 129! It was a memorable celebration with the fitting theme, "Meeting between the Young Ones and the Young Once." Dr. Matilda Naputi Rivera, Immediate Past President of the SOE Alumni Association, served as the Mistress of Ceremony. SOE Dean, Dr. Patrick Leddy, greeted the audience with a warm welcome, which was followed by a truly inspirational speech by the UOG President, Dr. Robert Underwood. Alumni from the Class of 1956 to the present were treated with entertainment of oldies but goodies, as well as modern performances. Among the entertainers were GEMS, StarGazers Dance Troupe, song renditions by Lovelyn Trinidad and Kristian Villanueva, as well as community singing led by Dr. Lourdes Ferrer and Matt Raymundo. Dr. Lourdes Klitzkie, SOE Alumni Advisor, was instrumental in inviting many of our SOE Alumni who were among the first students at UOG 60 years ago! BIBA UOG! BIBA SOE!
