Jose Ma. Lorenzo “Lory” Tan of the Class of 1970 was honored with the Xavier Kuangchi Award for Exemplary Alumni last July 22, 2016. The award was conferred by the Board of Trustees led by school president Fr. Aristotle Dy, SJ and Johnip Cua (chairman) before an audience that included his family, friends and students from both the Grade School and High School. A number of his schoolmates from the Class of 1970 attended the event, including Antonio Albino Lucas Lopez who formally introduced the awardee. In his acceptance speech, Lory stressed the need for countries to wake up to the reality of global warming and the risks associated with climate change and called on everyone to contribute to conservation and sustainable development.
