VMUF School of Law celebrates its 25th year

SAN CARLOS CITY– Graduates of Virgen Milagrosa University Foundation School of Law here gathered recently to celebrate its Silver Anniversary and Grand Alumni Homecoming.

With the theme, “25 Years of Quality Legal Education Towards Global Competence and Excellence,” Justice Nicodemo T. Ferrer, Dean of the School of Law, cited graduates now gainfully employed in the government sector, in educational institutions, in courts and other court-related offices holding key positions in various disciplines.

One of the highlights of the affair was the Silver Anniversary and Grand Alumni Night with Dr. Ma. Lilia P. Juan, university president, as the guest speaker.  Other activities included a motorcade, a tree planting activity; and a Unity Lunch for the alumni, students, faculty and non-teaching staff.

The VMUF School of Law is among the country’s youngest schools of law. Of the 16 pioneer regular graduates, 5 remain: Laura D. Dadacay-De Vera; Janet C. Pagsolingan-Ferangco; Loreto V. Muñoz, Jr.; Zarah R. Sanchez; and Zenaida L. Tamayo.

Zarah R. Sanchez was the first lawyer of the VMUF after passing the bar examinations in 1998. In 2009, she was appointed Municipal Trial Court judge in Cities (MTCC), Branch 2 in Dagupan City.

In 2014, Atty. Kristine C. Aquino-Ferrer, was appointed Judge, Municipal Trial Court in Lupao, Nueva Ecija.

San Carlos City Mayor Julier C. Resuello hailed the VMUF graduates with his message “The key to a brighter future is in our hands, the hope of a better tomorrow is within reach and the burden to execute is on our shoulders.  Let us develop, prepare and mold them to be the “hope” we want them to be.”
