UST Alumni proudly support the Thomasian athletes!
In the spirit of 78th UAAP Season, Mr. Edwin Corral and Mrs. Jeanie Corral of Mared Rubber & Marketing Corporation, Mr. Chuck Dumlao and Mrs. Donna Dumlao of FMR and Mr. Mariano Agoncillo and Ms. Angelica Arianne Agoncillo of Datem Construction donated funds to proudly support the UST Growling Tigers. Their in-kind donation was turned over to the Office of Alumni Relations last September 2, 2015.
When asked, why do you choose to support the basketball team?
Angelica Arianne: It’s our favorite because the whole family enjoys watching it together. It is also a form of bonding time; watching and cheering for a team. Our parents even used to bring us to PBA games when we were younger. And all my brothers play the sport as well.
Jeanie Corral : We love the sport. Our son plays basketball and Edwin still plays it regularly. During our college years in UST, we experienced extreme pride and honor as Thomasians because of what our Men’s basketball team accomplished then. We know that in order to bring back glory to our basketball program, we have to help the athletes achieve optimal performance by helping them in any way we can. If by assisting our athletes they give back honor and pride to our alma mater, we are also helping the current Thomasian students to experience what we felt during UST’s glory days.
Donna Dumlao: Because un ang hilig namin. Since mag boy friend palang kami ni Chuck basketball na mundo namin. And it was because of basketball that we realized that we will be good partners.
