UPAA North America Turns Over Donation for UPV Archives

UP Alumni Association North America, represented by Mr. Jose Antonio Teodoro “Topet” M. Samaniego (HS 1982, BS Fisheries 1988, UPV), turned over their donation to the University of the Philippines Visayas Library last January 13, 2023. 

The donation amounted to One Thousand Five Hundred Twenty-Six US Dollars (USD1,526.00). It was made in the name of UPAANA pioneer Dr. Cynthia J. Ticao (BS 1978, UPV; MA Psychology 1991, UPD). This donation is intended to help fund the project of the UPV Library to set up the UPV Archives Section at the New UPV Library Building.

The turnover was held at the UPV Alumni Lounge. The amount was received through the UPAA Iloilo Chapter, represented by President Rene John V. Nuñez and Vice President Consuelo R. Geduspan, in the presence of UPV Library College Librarian Ma. Yvonne E. Genciane, Mr. Samaniego’s family, and OAR personnel. 

On behalf of the UPV Library, University Librarian Analiza G. Linaugo expressed gratitude for the donation. “Thank you so much for your continued support of the UPV Archives. Your donation will greatly help improve the Archives’ services, facilities, and equipment for the preservation of UP Visayas archival materials and special collections. We are extremely grateful for the support given by the UPAA North America and other donors. We look forward to more assistance from you,” Linaugo said. 

The UPV Library has an ongoing drive to develop the University Archives with the help of various UP alumni and friends. For more details, you may contact the UPV Library ([email protected], +63333158360), or the OAR ([email protected], facebook.com/upvoar). (Mr. GC T. Castro, UPV OAR)
