The University has named a major component of the Ecopark in honor of main benefactors- Jose and Claudio Alunan in whose memory of Tess Limjap, Edgar Alunan and Josefa Puentevella have made a generous donation.
The Jose and Claudio Vaugirard Garderns is a spiritual and wellness complex composed of the Meditation Garden, Mary’s Well, the Via Crucis, the Pieta, Bamboo Hall, Café Verde, swimming pools, a fishing lagoon, picnic sheds, picnic and camping grounds and other support facilities-encompassing the main features of the park.
Meanwhile, the Ecopark Center is dedicated to Br. Rolando Dizon FSC in recognition and appreciation of his creative vision and initiatives in acquiring and developing the 50-hectare property in Granada in pursuit of institutional environmental advocacies and future expansion of academic programs.
“The Br. Rolando Dizon Ecopark Center is a fitting tribute to Br. Roly’s vision and unwavering commitment to our University’s academic growth as well as the various initiatives toward environmental preservation and protection,” Vice Chancellor for Mission and Development Geoffrey Bob Bergante said.
Fr. John Cardinal, Executive Director of the Bacolod Boys’ Home Foundation served as the officiating priest during the blessing of the facilities.
In his words of appreciation, President and Chancellor Br. Raymundo Suplido FSC highlighted that the University will forever be thankful for the generosity of the Alunan Family.
Tokens then were given to family representatives Joemarie Limjap, Josefa Puentevella and Edgar Alunan.
Josefa Puentevella gave a short response in behalf of the family.
