A COLLEGE of Education (Education) alumna reminded Education students to be more committed to teaching during the celebration of the 80th foundation year of Education at the Engineering Complex last Jan. 14.

“The University should teach students to have real service and commitment for teaching,” said Dr. Josephine Anino, an outstanding alumni honoree in the field of Education. “If they don’t, who will teach the next generation?”

She said most of the education students nowadays use their courses as mere stepping stones for work abroad.

“I noticed that most of the students are not really dedicated to teach,” Anino said. “They just take the course and look for other jobs.”

Still a teacher at 68, Anino, earned her Bachelor of Science in Education major and Filipino minor in Library Sciences degree from UST.

Among the outstanding alumni honorees in the different fields of study in the College were Eugene Garcia Raymundo, a Benavides award recipient in 1993, for Hotel and Restaurant Management, Kenneth Go for Food Technology, and Ellen Villante, RND, M.P.H. for Nutrition and Dietetics.

Villante was cited by the Philippine Association of Fellows for outstanding achievement in the field of nutrition promotion and education in 2003 and as outstanding nutritionist-dietician in the field of public health nutrition in 2005. While Go, who graduated cum laude in 1994, works for the technical working panel of Bureau of Food And Drugs on drafting guidelines for Philippine Food Product Identity and the Philippine Nutritional Labeling Requirements.
