A living legend came out “punching and kicking” at the luncheon for Outstanding Silliman Awardees at the Silliman Hall on Saturday.

Segundo Maravilla, 91, got the spotlight after the moderator of a brief program Moses Atega called him to represent the 1938 HS Class. This was the year when Silliman Institute just became a University.

Maravilla who is still active in farming in Kabankalan, Negros Occidental delighted his fellow Sillimans by shadow boxing and flexing his muscles to show off his vitality and durability.

Asked about the secret of his youthful vitality, Maravilla professed, “by the grace of the Lord.

He was the best swimmer in his days at Silliman. He excelled also in boxing and javelin throw.

At his age when most of his contemporaries have gone ahead, he said he is missing his friends in Silliman like the late PE Director Procopio Velasco. He walked back to his chair to the marching tune of rah rah siz boomba led by Atega.

Joining the spontaneous joyous celebration were the 2010 outstanding awardess–Romeo Ariniego for Medicine, Lucy Jumawan-Sauer for Dance, Evangeline Bravo Manjares for Commumity Work, and Evelyn Tan Requiza for Educaation and Historical Research.

SU President Ben Malayang and BOT Chairperson Juanita Dy Amatong also gave recognition to outgoing BOT members Julio Sy and Madison Villavito during the occasion.
