In what has been considered as a rare honor and opportunity, La Union Agriculture Chief Avelino A. Lomboy, in his capacity as Commencement Speaker, exhorted the 2009 roll of graduates and the academe’s officials of the De La Salle Araneta University in Caloocan City during its 62nd Commencement Exercises which was attended by some 2,000 proud parents, guardians, guests and spectators.

Lomboy, an alumnus of the said university, cited the academe’s gradual delivery of academic excellence while coming to the aid of the nation in its quest to redeem its rightful place in the index of progressive landmarks of development. He challenged the graduates to search for their true identity and find themselves as the catalysts of change even when we are at the threat of global economic collapse.
