Everyone in the UE community is invited to the Department of Libraries’ showcase in line with the University’s 69th Foundation Anniversary!

Titled “The UE Archives Section @ Its Best: An Exhibit in the East,” the presentation will be held on both UE Manila and UE Caloocan on September 21-24, 2015, at the Archives Extension Area on the 4th floor of the POD-CIT Bldg. in UE Manila and at the Benjamin G. Chua Library on the 6th floor of the Tan Yan Kee Academic Building in UE Caloocan.

In this day and age of smartphones, tablets and similar devices, there’s still nothing like holding a book in your hands or seeing valuable artifacts—especially ones about your very school—right in front of you instead of as an image on a gadget.

See you at these exhibits, Warrior students and others!

(Note: These invitations were produced before the Presidential announcement that September 25, 2015 will be a national holiday. Thank you.)

The Happiest Pinoy of 2015 is UE graduate and professor Richardson E. Navor!

Prof. Navor was awarded in the evening of September 10, 2015, at the Grand Ballroom of the Solaire Resort and Casino in Parañaque City, during Cebuana Lhuillier’s Search for the Happiest Pinoy 2015 awarding ceremony. He bested 10 other finalists in the Search, which had a total of 280,000 nominees this year.

Prof. Navor is a 2008 BS Accountancy graduate, Magna Cum Laude, of the UE College of Business Administration-Caloocan turned Accountancy and Financial Management professor of the UE CBA Caloocan.

Now 28 years old, Prof. Navor was a multi-achiever in his student days, including having been a UE-Tan Yan Kee scholar; Founding President of Book Lovers of the University of the East, which he founded in his freshman year; President of the UE CBA Caloocan Student Council in his sophomore year; Vice President for Academics of the UE Caloocan Chapter of the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants (JPIA) in his third year; President of UE Caloocan’s Central Student Council (CSC) in his fourth year; and Vice President for Information and Publicity of the National Federation of the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants’ (NFJPIA) National Capital Region (NCR) Council in his fifth year.

On his graduation from UE on April 17, 2008, he was not just a Latin honor recipient: He was also an Outstanding Graduate Awardee, UE Caloocan’s Leadership Awardee for Men and a College Distinguished Graduate Awardee—marking the first time for a single UE graduate to earn those three latter titles. Prof. Navor’s biggest recognition yet came shortly after he graduated: He was awarded as one of the 2008 Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines on July 17 that year.

Here is part of Cebuana Lhullier’s brief introduction of Prof. “Chard” Navor, as originally posted on the Search’s Facebook page:

“Richardson Navor (28, Financial Analyst from Caloocan), or Kuya Chard, was born with cerebral palsy. Rather than letting other people’s judgments get the better of him, he used his physical limitations to inspire and influence people.

“During his college days, he did not show any signs of weakness to people around him. Besides being elected as the student council president, Kuya Chard also graduated magna cum laude and received multiple leadership and academic awards.

“When his mother was diagnosed with cervical cancer, he stepped up to be the main source of strength of his family. He did everything to look for monetary assistance from different people. He even saved some of his allowance from his scholarship for his mother. Eventually, her mother was diagnosed cancer-free.

“Kuya Chard, as a model and inspiration to many, is now a financial analyst in IBM Philippines. He continues to receive service awards and has formed an organization named People Uplifting the Student and the Handicapped (PUSH) to show his advocacy for youth empowerment and his support to PWDs.”

Per the Search for the Happiest Pinoy organizers prior to the awarding ceremony: “Celebrating the values of optimism, resilience and hope among Filipinos, the competition aims to find a Filipino who has a positive outlook in life, was able to rise above life’s challenges and had a positive impact in the lives of others…

“Of the more than 280,000 entries reviewed through judging sessions and deliberations, ten were identified to be the most compelling. From these finalists, one will emerge as the grand winner of the Search which will be announced during the awards night on September 10, 2015 at the Solaire Resorts and Casino. A P1 million cash prize, tax-free, awaits the Search for the Happiest Pinoy 2014 grand winner…”

The Happiest Pinoy finalists were judged by a panel comprised by Cebuana Lhuillier Chairman and Philippine Ambassador to Portugal Philippe Lhuillier, Cebuana Lhuillier Insurance Solutions General Manager Jonathan Batangan, Atty. Anne Marie Corominas, Camarines Sur 3rd District Representative/Hon. Atty. Leni Robredo, broadcast journalist Luchi Cruz-Valdez, international public speaker Francis Kong, Cultural Center of the Philippines Chairman Emily Abrera, 2008 CNN Hero of the Year Efren Peñaflorida, 2012 Happiest Pinoy Rommel Arellano and 2010 Happiest Pinoy Winston Maxino.

This award is further testament to Prof. Navor’s tenacity and persistence despite life’s challenges, and proof that hard work and perseverance eventually get rewarded.

Congratulations and kudos on this latest feather in your cap, Prof. Richardson E. Navor: Happiest Pinoy and Happiest Warrior!

College students of UE Manila and UE Caloocan: Can you dance, seriously? If yes, take this chance to audition to be part of the renowned UE Silanganan Dance Troupe!

Headed by UE Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA) Director Generoso Caringal, the UE Silanganan Dance Troupe performs at key functions of the University on-campus and off-campus. Its full-time, qualified members are entitled to the UE Cultural Service Grant.

UESDT auditions will be held this Tuesday, September 8, 2015, 1 p.m., at the Conference Hall in UE Manila (on the 4th floor of the Dalupan Building). But it would be best if you’d be there before 1 p.m. so you’ll have time to warm up and get ready.

Good luck, UE Silanganan Dance Troupe hopefuls!

UE’s Junior Volleyball Teams Post UAAP 78 Wins!

The UAAP Season 78 high school volleyball tournaments also kicked off this weekend at the Adamson Gym in Manila and the UAAP press corps reports that the UE Red Warriors Boys’ Volleyball Team and Girls’ Volleyball Team have earned a victory as well as a setback each.
