One of the pillars of the University of the Philippines College of Agriculture (UPCA), Dr. Nemesio B. Mendiola, handed down a promise to support the College of Agriculture, now renamed as the College of Agriculture and Food Science (CAFS). Several decades later, Ms. Susan M. Javier, his granddaughter, fulfilled that promise.

Dr. Nemesio B. Mendiola was the country’s foremost scientist, a Botanist, and a breeder of Hibiscus in the early 1920s. He is the author of the book titled, “A Manual of Plant Breeding for the Tropics,” and the editor-in-chief of the Philippine Agricultural Scientist, from 1915-1916.

Dr. Enrico P. Supangco, Dean of College of Agriculture and Food Science was grateful to the overwhelming support the College has been receiving from the Alumni. “The alumni have always been supportive to our endeavors. We grow with them and they are the clear manifestation how successful we are,” said Dean Supangco. And just recently, a group of alumni led by Dr. Norberto T. Ison, President of University of the Philippines Los Baños Alumni Group in America (UPLBAGA) in California paid homage to the College.

“Mas maganda na kami ay tumulong kasi dati rin kaming natulungan ng University,” Dr. Ison uttered as they express continuous support to be able to help not just the institution as well as the students. (CELee)
