New Science Building – Pioneers’ Building
Inspired by the enthusiasm of PUCA'79/PUC PIONEERS to support classroom development at AUP during their reunion on July 17, 2010 at Bradbury State, California, Dr. Miriam P. Narbarte, Vice President for Academics proposed a much needed additional Science Building to be named “Pioneers’ Building” to house additional laboratories and classrooms for the College of Arts, Science, and Technology. In attendance to this event were Dr. Reuel Narbarte, HR Director and Dr. Robert Borromeo, VP Finance who were “Silang Pioneers” too.
The Alumni Association, National Chapter, under the leadership of Dr. Abdul Rajagukguk, one of the first seminary students in 1978 encouraged the officers to support this project by providing all the money that the association had in the treasury (amounting to 1.1M pesos). Enough money was raised to start the construction, so in September 17; the ceremonial ground breaking was done. Present during the program was Dr. Nestor Rilloma, Pioneer Association president and currently the president of NLAC, spoke in behalf of the pioneers.
This pioneer building is envisioned to contain 20 rooms to house a much needed additional chemistry laboratories, CAST Dean’s office, and classrooms. It is located parallel to the present science building. The first phase is now being constructed, so far, work is now focused on the installation of GI sheets for the roof.
Silang Pioneers of 1979 exemplify the type of education AUP can provide to young people. Donald & Barbara Van Ornam, administrator and faculty at that time post the following statement in FB: "When we look at AUP today, how it is training so many students, we can only thank God for His leading and blessing. You helped lay a foundation on which students today build. You laid a strong foundation. We love you" (see “PUC Silang Pioneers” in Facebook for an update on the group’s activity).
