The fourth President of St. Paul University Dumaguete, Sr. Mila Grace Silab, SPC, was officially installed Sept. 5 in an academic investiture and concelebrated Holy Mass with Bishop Julito B. Cortes as main celebrant.

St. Paul of Chartres Congregation Provincial Superior Sr. Lilia Therese Tolentino, Assistant Superior for Education Sr. Ma. Nilda Masirag, and St. Paul University System Chancellor Sr. Rosanne Mallillin officially installed the new SPUD president here in Dumaguete.

“I am honored and privileged to be part of the present and future of a University with such rich past. I am humbled to accept the stewardship of a University that for 118 years has served the Church and the country through the formation of Christ-centered citizens, and socially- responsible members and leaders of our society who have shaped a legacy of excellence in catholic education,” President Silab said in her inaugural address.

President Silab completed her Theological Studies from the Loyola School of Theology, and an MS in Nursing major in Nursing Administration from St. Paul-Tuguegarao City. She’s currently completing her dissertation for a PhD in Nursing Science.

She worked as a professional nurse in various hospitals before she was appointed dean of the College of Nursing at St. Paul-Surigao, then dean of the College of Nursing at St. Paul-Dumaguete in 2010, and Local Superior of the SPC Sisters in Dumaguete. Responding to another grace-filled journey in 2016, she was appointed as Second President of St. Paul-Iloilo.

The new SPUD President hails from Toledo City. She first encountered the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres at Cebu Doctors’ Hospital where she worked as a registered nurse after passing the Nurses’ Licensure Examination in 1995. Cebu Doctors’ Hospital is administered by the SPC.

Dignitaries present at the installation of the fourth president of St. Paul University Dumaguete were the heads of the SPC universities around the country, Silliman University President Dr. Betty Cernol-McCann, Negros Oriental State University President Dr. Joel Limson, Negros Oriental Schools Division Supt. Senen Priscillo Paulin, Dumaguete City Schools Division Supt. Dr. Gregorio Cyrus Elejorde, Diocesan Schools Supt. Fr. Thadeu Enrique Balongag, and SPUD Alumni Association Board Chairman Dr. Jose Victor Imbo. (PR)
