With Mr. Ian Eric S. Pama elected to a second term as president, the school formally welcomed the newly-elected officers of the Hua Siong College of Iloilo (HSCI) Board Trustees (BOT) for School Year 2023-2025 during the induction ceremony held last September 1, 2023 at the Ty Eng Liong Gymnasium, HSCI Ledesco Campus.
Pama was first elected as president of the BOT for School Year 2021-2023. In his speech, he shared that he was ready to step down after his first term of office, yet he was nominated and selected by his fellow directors.
During his two years as president, HSCI has continued its high level of record-breaking successes in academics and sports despite starting his leadership in the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic where the school had to shift to alternative modes of education.
“My heart is full of determination as I accept the challenge again of being the president of the school. I believe that with our collective commitment and effort success can be easily achieved,” said Pama in his acceptance speech.
As re-elected president, he has numerous plans for improving and developing the institution such as renovation of facilities like offices, clinics, laboratories, and libraries.
“My vision for our school is one that celebrates diversity, cultivates creativity, and embraces innovation and to achieve this vision, we must focus on enhancing professional development opportunities for our teachers, foster a safe and inclusive learning environment for our students, and establish strong partnerships with parents and the community,” he added.
Inducted by Cong. James A. Ang Jr., HSCI named its new Board of Trustees Dr. Felipe A. Uygongco (Immediate Past President), Mr. Robert U. Po (Past President), Mr. Ian Eric S. Pama (President), Engr. Terence S. Uygongco (Executive Vice President), Mr. Romeo S. Go (Vice President), Engr. Roswell T. Limsui (Secretary), Mr. Louis John J. Ng (Assistant Secretary), Mr. Vicente Tang (Treasurer), Mr. Antonio H. Lim (Assistant Treasurer), Mr. Julian FelipeS. Uygongco (Auditor), and Mr. Robert L. Uy, Cong. James A. Ang Jr., Mr. Vicente Danilo E. Tan Chan, Mr. Tomas G. Tan, and Mr. Rex A. Chua (Directors).
Every two years, the members of the board elect a new set of officers for the BOT, an organization responsible for ensuring that the school’s mission and vision are met and in proposing policies that bring about the best interest and success of the whole academic community.
