BACOLOD City – The Negros Occidental High School (NOHS) in Bacolod City unveiled their new signage on Friday through the support of Batch 1985.
The unveiling rites was led by batch president Noel Iligan, NOHS principal IV Mario Amaca, and Bacolod Lone District Representative Greg Gasataya held at the schools ground yesterday morning.
Iligan said they came up with the idea after they saw the old signage with incomplete letters.
We prepared it for about a year. It was materialized through the support of our batchmates, Iligan said.
Amaca expressed gratitude to the batch for initiating the project for their Alma Mater.
It will stay forever, Amaca said, adding that the new signage is made of stainless steel.
Their plan is to also make the schools entrance, elegant by using granite, Amaca said.
Gasataya said he is happy with the action of the batch for their Alma Mater.
I salute Batch 85 for doing the exemplary work and for continuously helping the institution, he added.
Gasataya also said he committed to assist and help the school in funding for the proposed construction of a gymnasium within the premises.
He said he will ask the national government regarding the funding of the proposal.
Iligan, on the other hand, said their batch is also willing to help in the realization of the said proposal.
At present, students are using the Paglaum Sports Complex as venue for their Physical Education (P.E.) classes.
Part of yesterdays activity was the induction of the new set of officers of the said batch.
Inducted were Iligan as president, and other officers – Dobbie Ayungon, Marilou Jamero, Remilen Dela Torre, Helen Claveraz, Sonia Abong, Glia Mabag and Evelyn Arroz, Joemie Delos Santos, Glenda Pajes, Albert Espinosa, Ermelo Alintano and Felix Escalona Jr.
