MSHS Alumni Foundation holds 19th MaSci Medics

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Manila Science High School Alumni Foundation, Inc. recently conducted its 19th annual medical mission for the benefit of former and current teaching and non-teaching staff at the MSHS Barotilla Hall.

MaSci Medics, which also distributed free medicines courtesy of Unilab Foundation, was supported by alumni from the medical field and other volunteers.

Dr. Regina M. Bartolome (Batch 1980) of the Manila Health Department spearheads the medical mission every year as one of the foundation’s pet projects.

MSHS Batch 1994 physician coordinator Dr. Kristine Karen Estacio-Hawak and Marjorie Andres, nurse and unit manager at the Philippine Heart Center, signed up for MaSci Medics together with batchmates Dr. Maria Margarita Balabagno, Dr. Lian Jamisola and Dr. Gerto Quevedo.

“I have always looked up to educators as they selflessly impart their knowledge to their students. I volunteered for the MaSci Medics to extend my sincerest gratitude and be of service to my mentors and MaSci friends. After 25 years, I felt excited and great to be back in MaSci,” Dr. Estacio-Hawak revealed.

Meanwhile, Dr. Jamisola disclosed that she volunteered because she wants to give back to MaSci in whatever way she can. “I owe MaSci a lot – what I am now and the family that I have. It was pure happiness and nostalgia being back in MaSci after 25 years. Seeing old teachers and bonding with batchmates was super worth taking the day off from work.” She is married to batchmate Geronimo Jamisola.

The medical professionals from Batch 1994 got ample support from their other batchmates, particularly members of the alumni homecoming organizers and the XC4 Bomba basketball team. Ma. Cheryl F. Prudente and Faustina Margarita Molina ViriƱa of Batch 1979 also volunteered for the med mission.

Aside from MaSci Medics, the MSHS Alumni Foundation also offers scholarships to indigent students and works on a rainwater harvesting project to help the school conserve water, among others.

The silver jubilarians, in coordination with the foundation, are also in the thick of preparations for the alumni homecoming on October 12 and educational tour/field trip and alternative classroom learning experience for students.

The MSHSAF Board of Trustees is made up of Ronald Allan F. Gonzales (Batch 1987), president; Ambrosio L. Berdijo, Jr. (Batch 1982), vice president; Norlie H. Quesada (Batch 1981), secretary; Conrad Tolentino (Batch 1987), assistant secretary; Luz L. Lorenzo (Batch 1977), treasurer; Maria Lourdes L. Lorenzo (Batch 1976), asst. treasurer; Dr. Bartolome, auditor; Amor Noble-Roque (Batch 1969), Virgilio A. Aquino (Batch 1972), Luningning Guinto-Ato (Batch 1992), Virna Liza Dela Cruz-Balite (Batch 1990), Erwin Manuel C. Perez (Batch 1993), Cyrus B. Mendoza and Seymour B. Sanchez (Batch 1994).

MaestroRY: A Tribute to Ryan Cayabyab

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Celebrate the storied career of newly-declared Philippine National Artist for Music, "The Maestro", Ryan Cayabyab, with MaestroRy: A Tribute to Ryan Cayabyab.

An all-star cast gathers for a cause in this special, one-night only tribute concert to maestro Ryan Cayabyab, also fondly called as Mr. C, by everyone in the music industry. The maestro has had a remarkable career spanning 40 years, having written chart-topping hits for the biggest names in Philippine entertainment.

“MaestroRy: A Tribute to Ryan Cayabyab” comes to the Theatre at Solaire on August 31, 2019. The event is a major fundraiser for the high school Silver Jubilarians of St. Scholastica’s College (SSC) Manila.

The one-night only concert which will follow the story of Mr. C’s life, will feature performances by artists across all ages to honor his 40 years in the music industry. Icons such as Kuh Ledesma, Basil Valdes and Celeste Legaspi and The Smokey Mountain pioneer members Jeffrey Hidalgo and Tony Lambino, join forces with contemporary hit makers Morissette, Nicole Asensio, Auto Telic, IV of Spades, Urban Dub and many more for an unforgettable night featuring special renditions of Ryan Cayabyab's landmark pieces, such as “Kay Ganda ng Ating Musika”, “Paraiso," "Tuwing Umuulan," "Kailan," "Da Coconut Nut," and "Nais Ko", interpreted by Pinoy music icons and today's young hitmakers. It's going to be like listening to Mr. C's unforgettable classics again for the first time.

With special participation by Ryan Cayabyab himself, MaestroRy is an epic tribute concert that should not be missed!

MaestroRy, hosted by Billy Crawford will be directed by Paolo Valenciano, with musical direction by Mel Villena and the special participation of Mr. C himself.

Proceeds of the concert will go to SSC Manila HS 95, Inc. to support various charities including St. Scholastica’s Mission Hospital in Pambuan, Northern Samar; “Tuluyan ni San Benito,” a shelter and education/livelihood program for homeless families; the SSC Night Secondary School for economically challenged girls and women; the "Child of a Scholastican” Scholarship; and St. Benedict’s Home for retired Benedictine sisters in Marikina. Proceeds will also help to fund SSC Manila’s “One Vision 2020” grand homecoming event in February.

"It also reflects Batch '95's lifelong commitment to uplifting the lives of our less fortunate brothers and sisters by providing healthcare and opportunities for education and livelihood, as well as our wish to give back to our school."

"This tribute concert to Mr. C is a fitting collaboration by the industry's finest to honor the National Artist for Music," says Garlic Garcia, head-writer of the show, speaking on behalf of SSC Manila HS ’95.

Tickets for MaestroRy are now available at Ticketworld outlets and are priced from P2,000 to P10,000 (inclusive of cocktails for VVIP section).
