    Fighting on to raise funds for the school, TeamPisay87 recently fielded three relay teams to the 2011 Tri-United Triathlon in Matabungkay and to the Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines in CamSur. All teams made it to the finish line in good time completing the 2km swim, 60km bike and 21km run. The swimmers (Lin Valenzuela, Mia Quitalig, Darby Santiago) braved CamSur's legendary murky waters and the now classic swim leg of Matabungkay's surf waters. The cyclists (Peps Ong Ante, Vince Leung, Boyet Ilagan) pedaled their way through the rains in CamSur. While the runners (JB Ligot, Jun Carnate, Jet Descallar, Mike Santos, Lester Hurtado) braved the scorching sun in their midday run to the finish line. The teams were backed by its 20 strong support team led by batchmates Arlene Fernando-Carlos, Ryan Azarcon and Jenny Cortez. Team Captain Lin Valenzuela is so elated by the results that she expects more batchmates to join the races in the following year and that some team members might do individual races next year. Up next are the Anvaya Cove Invitational Triathlon on November 5 and the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore  on December 4. The latter will also be participated in by members of TeamPisay87 Team Lion City!

    The Main Campus finally inaugurated its newly rebuilt faculty center last December 1, 2010, more than two years after a fire completely destroyed it in September 2008.  Dr Helen Caintic, Main Campus director, thanked a long list of donors whose generosity helped bring the project to its completion, led by sponsors: alumni batches of 1986 and 1984.  In a simple program to celebrate the blessing, Curriculum and Instruction Services Division chief, Virginia Andres showed a presentation chronicling the long journey to complete the new home of around 35 faculty members who until then had to make due with makeshift and cramped offices elsewhere.

    2010 TOYM AwardsCongratulations to Dr. Edsel Maurice Salvaña (Main’92) for being named one of 2010’s Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) for medicine and social activisim.  His advocacy in battling HIV has led to the widespread recognition of the HIV and AIDS in the country.

    The Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) Award is recognized as one of the Philippines' prestigious awards for young people aged 18 to 40 who have excelled in their respective fields and have contributed much to the welfare of their countrymen and the development of the country. The award is co-sponsored by the Gerry Roxas Foundation since 1973 but it was initiated by the Manila Jaycees in 1959. The Philippine Jaycees (Junior Chamber International - Philippines) adopted this project on 1959. Since then, more than 400 inspiring Filipino youth from different sectors have been honored.   The theme for 2010 was "Heroes Create Heroes." The winners were announced during simple rites at the Malacañang Palace in December, with the awards being given by President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III himself.
