When UST alumni celebrate Christmas there is an outburst of Thomasian spirit!

Christmas celebration is one of the most important events for the officers, members and guests of the University of Santo Tomas Alumni Association of Manitoba.
Led by Vangie Mance, chairman, USTAAM, the recently held Christmas Party at Bourkevale Community Centre has sparked the alumni to be involved more often in the sharing and giving traditions. Mance says: “This is a time to have more sharing and giving, a true Thomasian spirit.’

The young alumni members and some first time attendees joined the celebration, making them participate in various games and gift giving. Each member had the recollections while they were pursuing their careers at the University of Santo Tomas.

The current officers and board members for 2016-2018 include Vangie Mance, chairperson; Gee Carbonnel, vice-chairperson; Lanie Pasco, secretary; Jen Purificacion, alternate secretary; Jerecho Giba, treasurer; Mayymi Panelo, alternate treasurer; Byron Yadao, auditor. Board members, Drs. Mirla David, Nena Huypungco, Maridol Madolora, Lauren Abano, Prosy Kalaw; Leah Enverga Magsino and Rod Escobar Cantiveros, advisers.
