TWO BENEFACTORS OF Silliman University will be conferred this month the Order of Horace B. Silliman in Manila and two others on the Silliman campus.

Silliman President Dr. Ben S. Malayang III and Board of Trustees Chairperson Mrs. Juanita Dy-Amatong will confer the Order on Mrs. Elizabeth How and her family and Atty. Enrique Sobrepeña, Jr. on August 22 during the Founders Day celebration of the Silliman Manila Alumni Chapter, Inc. at the Makati Sports Club.{{more}}

Mrs. How and her family donated a 467-hectare property in Ticao, Masbate in honor of Mr. Paulino and Mr. Francis Xavier How, a Sillimanian. The property is a growing model of an excellent extension program that covers livelihood and vocational training.

Atty. Sobrepeña, on the other hand, donated P5 million to establish the Rose Lamb Sobrepeña Writers Village in Camp Look-out, Valencia. The Writers Village is now the permanent home of the Silliman University National Writers Workshop, the first in Asia.

A separate conferral ceremony is set August 26 at the South Lawn of the Silliman Hall to honor Rev. Alfredo Baliad and Dr. Eusebio Kho.

Rev. Baliad donated to Silliman over a hundred hectares of property in Bayawan City. Plans are underway to develop the property as a facility for the University’s extension program, in coordination with the various academic units.

A longtime benefactor of Silliman, Dr. Kho established a professorial chair each at the College of Business Administration and Medical School. He has also donated several scholarships that continue to benefit poor but deserving students.

Inspired by the generosity of Dr. Horace B. Silliman, the man who donated the initial amount of $10,000 to start Silliman University, the Order of Horace B. Silliman is a recognition conferred upon individuals, families and organizations. Recipients have blessed the University with gifts and donations with a value of at least P1 million. Their support continues to help realize the University’s mission of providing better opportunities to its students and the members of both Silliman and the larger community of Dumaguete.
