Message from Atty. Antero Penasales – 2007 President
RMHS Batch ’70 Alumni Association
I can still recall the honor that I felt when I was elected by the RMHS Board of Trustees as the President of RMHS Batch 70 Alumni Association. I will always value the trust bestowed upon me by its Alumni.
As I assumed my role as President, I, together with the officers who represent different sections of our Batch, defined the vision and direction of the Association. I appealed to everyone to take an extra mile in supporting the efforts of the Board of Trustees and Officers in realizing the Association’s dream, vision and goal. As we worked toward our dream, we encountered problems and difficulties, but our dream is big enough…the problems are surmountable. We your Officers and all the Committees work hard and persists to make our goals realities.
William Penn wrote, “No pain, no cross, no crown, no thorn, no throne, no gall, no glory” As we stretch our backbone in reaching our wishbone, we were able to make things happen and accomplish the following:
Well, all things work together for the good, for those who love the Lord. I am grateful and privileged to work with esteemed and competent members of the Board of Trustees, very supportive Officers and the Chairmen of the different organizing committees. I would also like to acknowledge the inspiration and financial support of our batch mates overseas, namely those in Australia, Canada and the United States of America. Without them the foregoing accomplishments would not have been possible. Nevertheless, our work is not yet over, we have so much to accomplish.
Today, we are all together after 38 years to share our joys and pains, the sunshine and the rain, our ups and downs, our triumphs and failures and sweet smell of success. Needless to say, what is important is that we are here to celebrate them all.
