Songco is new UST alumni association president


FORMER student affairs chief Evelyn Songco was elected president of the UST Alumni Association, nearly two months after the resignation of Henry Tenedero for giving an award to controversial Palace Communications Asssistant Secretary Mocha Uson.

Songco served as head of student affairs from from 1990 to 2006 and 2010 to 2014. She was director of the Office for Alumni Relations from 2007 to 2010.

Songco was among the recipients of the Gawad Benavides in 2009 for 35 years of service to the University.

She finished her master’s and doctorate degrees in development education in the University.

Tenedero resigned after the alumni association drew flak when it bestowed a government service award to Uson, a die-hard supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, and widely accused of being a purveyor of “fake news.”
