It is a great honor to be surrounded by so many distinguished alumni of Divine Word Academy of Dagupan. Every alumni homecoming is traditionally a time of togetherness and sharing of stories and memories. On this day of togetherness, I welcome you all to Divine Word Academy of Dagupan. This year’s alumni homecoming promises to be most exciting and rewarding as different members of the different batches from 1961 to 2009 comes back again to Divine Word Academy of Dagupan to relive once again the memories of their stay in this institution.
For more than 52 years our beloved institution has drawn young men and women from all parts of Luzon and we have sent forth alumni who carry DWAD’s spirit with them as they pursue their lives and careers in different parts of the country and abroad.
This year’s Alumni Homecoming with its theme: “UNITED DIVINIANS, SHARING AND COMING HOME” provides an unequaled opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones, learn about the different changes happening in DWAD and reminisce once again the memories of your stay here. It is my hope that this year’s alumni homecoming would be memorable event for everyone. Once again, welcome and thank you for your presence!!!
