She graduated with an honorary distinction in high school at Saint Mary’s Girls High School in 1969.

All of them graduated Magna Cum Laude! Jocelyn pursued her Master’s Degree in Nursing at the University of San Francisco, Magna Cum Laude. She works as a clinical educator specializing in sepsis at Glendale Adventist Medical Center. Josephine finished her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy at Boston University, Magna Cum Laude. She works as the Director of Physical Therapy at Good Samaritan Hospital. Jeanneth, a CPA, earned her Master’s Degree in Business Taxation at the University of Southern California, Magna Cum Laude.

Priscilla Mallare @ Cora Timoteo 
FYI : Info re: Nueva Vizcaya reunion

Angel Aluning Auntie Priscing Priscilla Mallare... where is this Nueva Vizcaya reunion? when will it happen? and who are organizing it? and may I have your address again please because the SMU Alumni sent you an application form but it returned saying that your address can not be found. you can private message me your address Auntie. thank you.

Priscilla Mallare I sent your reunion info to a friendwho is from Nueva Vizcaya so I wroteNueva Vizcaya instead of SMU. Hoping she would join the reunion of SM U then. I moved 2 years ago after a heart bypass cause I can no longer climb the stairs in my former home. I will write my new address in your private message

Angel Aluning Oh I see Auntie Priscing Priscilla... so it's the SMU reunion in June 2018 that you were referring to. It's a good thing that you survived the major heart surgery. God is really good Auntie. I told my parents about it. We hope to see you next year at the SMU Alumni association reunion at the Embassy Suites in Glendale. I will wait for your new address in my messages so that we can send you the form. Thanks Auntie and best regards. Take care. you can also register online in the website above.
