81st Commemoration of the Araw ng Kagitingan: The Exhibit

April 11, 2023    PLMun Comm

The Institute of Public Policy and Governance (IPPG), headed by the College Dean, Dr. Dan Jefferson Lopez, spearheaded the Launching of the 81st Commemoration of the Araw ng Kagitingan: The Exhibit, earlier this afternoon, at the Main Building Hallway.

Ms. Shayne Vinarao, an IPPG faculty member, led the discussion and narration of the historical events that transpired during the historic battle of Filipino and American Soldiers against the Imperial Japanese invasion that led to the fall of Bataan on 9 April 1942. This event also led to the Death March, where close to 75,000 Filipino and American troops were forced to make a 65-mile march to prison camps. PLMun employees and officials had a glimpse of the historic events and stories of the Day of Valor through the photos featured in the Araw ng Kagitingan Exhibit.

In closing, the University President, Dr. Raymundo P. Arcega, CESE, emphasized the significance of learning and re-learning one's past, to be able to move forward. He hoped that the true stories and meanings of our nation's history will not be lost, rather be preserved and cared for, even by the present generation. –
