Ate­neo de Zamboanga re­calls alumni, Nieva

Philippine Daily Inquirer - - NEWS -

ATE­NEO de Zamboanga Univer­sity will honor this year’s Golden Ju­bilee class at the grand alumni home­com­ing on Dec. 2-4 in Zamboanga City. This year’s golden ju­bi­lar­i­ans are the high school class of 1961 who grad­u­ated 50 years ago.

Among them was the late An­to­nio “Tony” Ma. Nieva who rose to be­come a top­notch jour­nal­ist and editor at the Philip­pines Her­ald, Manila Bul­letin and Philip­pine Daily Inquirer. He was two-term pres­i­dent of the National Press Club and founded the National Union of Jour­nal­ists of the Philip­pines.

Nieva was the first Filipino sec­re­tary-gen­eral of the In­ter­na­tional Union of Jour­nal­ists based in Prague, Czech Repub­lic, where he died of an ill­ness in Oc­to­ber 1997.

Ate­neo de Zamboanga pres­i­dent, Rev. Fr. An­to­nio F. Moreno S.J., said “the legacy Nieva left for his class, the Ate­neo and the na­tion will be cher­ished and re­mem­bered al­ways.”

Moreno called on alumni here and abroad to re­turn to the Ate­neo de Zamboanga for the home­com­ing. For de­tails, call Fran­cisco “Kit” Lorenzo at 09177102188, Chris­tine Calunod (62)991-0871 or Rolando Be­jer­ano 0917-710337.
