Article by Jayrick Aguirre


hey entered the stage, their
intricate dresses bedecked
with ruffles and hair in
chignons fixed by gilded
trinkets. The men donned their Spanishinspired garbs, holding their red and
black muletas, chests puffing out like
matadors entering the bull arena. Then,
the music started. Like a gaudy parade
dancing to the snaps of castanets, they
took centerstage, so unlike their former
selves 25 years ago when they left the
hallowed Roxas Hall to pursue their
medical careers.
Like a grand finale to the three-day
Ruby Anniversary Celebration of the
West Visayas State University College
of Medicine, the festive Alumni Night was
celebrated last July 17 at the Ann
Margaret Hall Diversion 21 Hotel with
the theme “Heal the World.”
Spearheaded by the Alumni Board
and the Silver Jubilarians from Class of
1990, the event featured a cross
cultural theme with each of the
celebrating batches assigned to a
country in each of the continents. The
Silver Jubilarians represented Spain
assigned with Japan. Class of 2005

(South Africa), Class of 2000 (USA),
Class of 1995 (Brazil), Class of 1985
(Philippines) and Class of 1980
(Polynesia) were among the other
celebrating batches.
Dr. Marcos Bito-onon, President of
the WVSU-COM Alumni Association
kicked off the program after which, the
College Dean, Dr. Joselito Villaruz,
gave out a message which resonated
with pride to the men and women of
the Roxas Hall.
While the dinner commenced, a
raffle draw was conducted, along with
the presentation of the „Splendid
Memories, Magnificent Dreams‟ AVP
which drew reactions from the nostalgic
crowd. Master of the Ceremonies
Dr. Malou Aragon de Veyra and
Dexter Dale Briones roused the crowd
as they announced the names of the
raffle draw winners.
The Alumni Board with their
Japanese samurai and geisha getups
first presented their production number
followed by the African–inspired
chorale and dance by the Class of
2005. US fellows from Class of 2000
showcased their swagger with their hip
-hop moves, while the Class of 1995
swayed the audience with their feisty

samba number. The Class of 1985
presented a rendition of the song „Iloilo
and Banwa Ko,‟ and then the three
attending members of batch 1980
performed a mellow Hula dance and an
upbeat Tahitian dance with their
The Spanish Paso Doble dance by
the Silver Jubilarians was among the
highlights of the night, joined by ADS
School of Performing Arts Student and
gathering all the members of the Silver
Jubilarians, the audience sang for
the Community Singing and Candle
Lighting while Michael Jackson‟s „Heal
the World‟ played in the background.
The night ended with the awarding
of grand prizes for the raffle draw
and the Ritmo Tambores providing
music for the energetic dancers taking
the stage.
Culminating the Ruby Anniversary of
the College, with the theme „WVSU
COM @ 40: Splendid Memories,
Magnificent Dreams,” the Alumni Night
became the avenue for the great men
and women of the College to convene
and reminisce with the old times and
moments that they have spent after so
many years. #
