The administration of the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila extended anew its deep gratitude to members of the PLM Alumni Association, Inc. (PLMAAI) for their continuing assistance for poor but deserving students as well as continued collaboration with the University.


PLM President Emmanuel Leyco conveyed his thanks to the organization as he was invited for the virtual oath-taking of PLMAAI’s newest set of officers and board of trustees.
“The support of the PLM alumni will always be a valuable input to the experiences of our students. You will continue to serve as their models, you will continue to serve as their inspiration, and you will continue to serve as their guide as they continue to take the path that they are taking now towards their careers,” President Leyco said.
He led the induction ceremony for the new PLMAAI officers on Saturday, February 26. The new officers are Francis Mapile, president; Prof. Gilmore Solidum, vice president; Wilma Zetazate, secretary; April Vitangcol, treasurer; and Rolando Cuico, auditor.
Fifteen members of the PLMAAI board of trustees were also elected, subject to varying terms of office.
The PLMAAI has been providing scholarships to students in various fields as a way of giving back to their Pamantasang mahal.
“Thank you for your support. Our students at PLM are very good, they are able to concentrate and focus on their studies but they definitely need your support,” the University president added. “Financial support is one, but I think more importantly, the moral support that the foundation extends to our students is equally significant.”
Undergraduate studies remain tuition-free by virtue of subsidies from the City Government of Manila and the UniFAST Act, but some students still need monetary support for their day-to-day expenses and to support other academic endeavors.
President Leyco said the continued support is welcome especially as PLM, together with the rest of the country, is now moving closer to the return of face-to-face classes after two years of COVID-19 restrictions. He added that a gradual return of onsite classes has started, with graduating students with laboratory courses being prioritized.
