Passion and Commitment - Michael Peter Ronio D. Pedronio, AB Political Science gave the response in behalf of the graduates.

The invocation was led by Pastor Ruth G. Lunasco, Associate Pastor, University Church. It was then followed by the singing of the national anthem and the alma mater song, conducted by Mrs. Crista S. Huyong, Director, Cultural Affairs Office.

For his words of welcome, Dr. Teodoro C. Robles, CPU President, congratulated the graduates and their parents for the accomplishment of finishing their college education, “You have completed your college education and you are about to engage into your professional career. This day is a celebration of your hard work and efforts tempered with the realization that without God, we are nothing. No matter how successful you are in life, without God—it is a life wasted.” Dr. Robles thanked the parents for choosing CPU for their children’s tertiary education. He went on to encourage the graduates to pursue the path of excellence and uphold the Central Spirit, “Always have the drive to excel; have the commitment to choose excellence wherever God will take you. Share what you have and give back. It was not only your hard work but the love and the support of your parents, family, loved ones, and God’s guidance and provision that have led you to this day.”

 


Mr. Daniel P. Dorillo, President of the CPU Alumni Association Inc. welcomed the graduates to the CPU alumni community.

 


410 graduates received their diploma during CPU’s 90th Commencement Exercises.

CPU then presented the Conferral of Doctoral Degree, Honoris Causa, Doctor of Pedagogy to Prof. Evangelica Diesto-Padernilla. Rev. Joniel Howard H. Gico, Vice President for Student Affairs, read the citation and shared the highlights of Prof. Padernilla’s life, “She is a woman of faith; a woman called by God to educate the hearts and minds of the youth. Mrs. Evangelica Diesto-Padernilla started as a classroom teacher, became a student teacher, supervisor, and promoted as principal of the University Elementary School. Her sincere efforts and unprecedented performance made her a recipient of recognition from various local, national and international organizations. She is a Centralian worth emulating—a strong woman of God, committed educator and academic supervisor, loving wife, dedicated mother and doting grandmother.”

The investiture of the hood was led by Dr. Teodoro C. Robles and Atty. Von Lovel D. Bedona, Chairman, CPU Board of Trustees. The diploma was then given by Dr. Robles, assisted by Miss Ruth G. Fernandez, University Registrar.

For the commencement address, Dr. Evangelica Diesto-Padernilla encouraged the graduates with the Word of God and the testimony of her life, “‘This is the day that the Lord has made. We will be glad and rejoice in it.’ Why rejoice? Because God’s plan for your life is to prosper you, to make you successful, as what Jeremiah 29:11 says, ‘For I know that plans I have for you says the Lord plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’”

She further encouraged the graduates with a poem that talks about the importance of being deeply rooted in Christ, “Anchor deep in the soil, root firmly in the sod. And when the winds of fate shall rise and blow across the land to test your strength, and others fall, you will stand out, the victor, the unabased, the unafraid.” Dr. Padernilla shared that there would be greater challenges that lie ahead but taking heart and working hard to overcome them would make one a victor, “Today, the journey is ended, yet the struggles have just begun. If you have exerted much effort during your student days, now you should exert violent effort if you want to succeed in your chosen profession.”

After her message, Dr. Robles, assisted by Miss Fernandez, led the conferral of degrees and investiture of hoods to the 410 graduates.

In his response on behalf of the graduates, Michael Peter Ronio D. Pedronio, Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Summa Cum Laude, encouraged his fellow graduates to excel in their chosen profession and to remain grateful and resilient in the journey of life.

Tabaodaja speaks at 1st Semester 2017-2018 Baccalaureate Service


Rev. Rosan Valencua-Tabaodaja highlights the importance of honoring one’s parents in order to be successful in life.

The College Baccalaureate Service held at the Rose Memorial Auditorium at 8:30 AM on Sunday, November 12, 2017, was a celebration of gratefulness. It was filled with expressions of thanks and happiness as the graduates were to be conferred with their diplomas in the afternoon, during the Graduation Ceremony for the First Semester 2017-2018.

In her inspiring message, “A Walk to Remember,” Rev. Rosan Valencia-Tabaodaja, Lady Minister of Mashville Baptist Church in Sucat, Parañaque City, emphasized three reminders which she felt should be significant to the graduates: First, to walk with character (referring to the verse in Psalms1:1). Second, to walk in wisdom (referring to the verse in James 1:15). Tabaodaja defined knowledge as a collection of knowledge, while wisdom is the application of knowledge. The third is to walk with consistency, “The consistency of our action to what we believe.” Her final advice to the graduates was to remember one of the laws in the Ten Commandments, to “honor thy father and thy mother.”


Emily-Victoria J. Oke, AB English, Cum Laude and Loyalty Awardee shared her testimony to the graduates.

In her response speech, Emily-Victoria Oke, Cum Laude and Loyalty Awardee, shared proof of how God helps His children. She narrated how God provided her with a deeper understanding of what God wanted her to be. She looked back to her father’s intention for her to enroll in another school, but she landed in CPU and was so blessed. She believed that “this honor and achievement is all God’s work.” She considered her graduation day as a day of hopes and dreams. Oke is the daughter of former Dean of CPU College of Commerce, the late Dr. Olufonso Oke.

Words of wisdom were also shared by Dr. Teodoro C. Robles, CPU President, when he encouraged the students and the parents to focus on what is important for success in his opening remarks. He urged them not to be distracted by unnecessary things that hinder the journey to success. Dr. Robles further emphasized the need to be grateful for all the blessings. He also thanked everyone for coming to the annual Baccalaureate Service of CPU.

For his message, Rev. Francis Neil G. Jalando-on, talked about the importance of thanking God for the people who shared their time, talent and treasure as highlighted by CPU’s 112th Founding Anniversary theme.

For time, he shared the story of Rev. William O. Valentine, the first principal of Jaro Industrial School, now CPU, “Rev. William O. Valentine devoted his time as a missionary to Burma, but afterwards he got sick with severe sunstroke. On his hospital bed, he questioned God why he got sick even though he was obedient to His calling. But soon after, in the same hospital he met his wife, Ina Jane Van Allen, and together they went to the Philippines and dedicated the rest of their lives serving Christ.” For talent, Rev. Jalando-on highlighted the life of Rev. Dr. Francis Howard Rose, described by Rev. Henry Munger as the “most stimulating, gifted and erudite missionary to serve Central.” Rev. Dr. Rose composed most of CPU’s Central Songs; built a pipe organ using local materials; was responsible for the building of some of CPU’s iconic infrastructures such as the Franklin Hall, Roblee Hall, and Weston Hall; designed the CPU seal (it has 12 rays representing 12 tribes of Israel, 12 disciples of Jesus Christ); and coined the term “Central Spirit.” Rose also unified the color of the campus by painting the buildings green with white trim. And lastly, for treasure, Rev. Jalando-on talked about the life of John D. Rockefeller. CPU was established through a grant given by the oil magnate philanthropist to the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, “John D. Rockefeller shared his treasure to help missionaries establish schools and churches all over the world.”


Kindergarteners gave their drawings and fruit offerings during the Thanksgiving Service.

Rev. Jalando-on concluded, “Valentine, Rose and Rockefeller are people who shared their time, talent and treasure and their lives are worth thanking God for.”
