The CHS Alumni Foundation Inc. (CHSAF)
The College of the Holy Spirit Alumnae Foundation Inc. (CHSAF) started in the late forties. For more than sixty (60) years, the HGCCAA /CHSAF has significantly assisted the S.SP.S mission in the Philippines by supporting the different school projects with the help of its loyal and mission oriented members and alumnae.
WOMEN BEHIND THE CHSAF
Fourteen (14) hardworking alumnae under the guidance of Sister Eden Panganiban, former Provicial leader for the Rosary Province, Philippines, North of the S.Sp.S Congregation and with Imelda “Mel” Lopez-Santos as President, comprise the 2019-2020 Board of Trustees of CHSAF.

The Laudato Si Garden of Native Trees – a Project of Love by HS’65
Spearheaded by Class HS’65 and with CHSAF as the marketing arm, the “Laudato Si Garden of Native Trees” project transformed the once abandoned corner of the CHSM campus into a beautiful garden for meditation and relaxation. Proceeds of the sponsorships of trees will go to the CHSAF’s scholarship fund and maintenance of the Garden. The core group includes Imelda Sarmiento, Rosalou Lamson, Lillian Gelveson,Vicky Alino Camarillo, Carina Querubin Latosa of HS’65, Gloria Angara of HS ’60, Rosemarie Lim, Maricor Akol and Imelda Lopez-Santos of CHSAF.
CHSAF officers recently signed a “Memorandum of Agreement (MOA)” with each of the 23 scholars in high school and in college. Each scholar underwent a rigorous selection process consisting of passing a series of examinations and interviews. The CHSAF Scholarship Committee is composed of Mildred Romero as chairwoman, Amelita King Dejardin, Cynthia Cases, Aya Guevarra, Gladys Ho and Amy Duremdes.
To expand the reach of CHSAF to all alumni wherever they may be, CHSAF, in cooperation with HS ’69, developed and installed the online registration system to allow alumni all over the world to register online and pay their registration fees for the homecoming.For more information, please visit our website: www.chsafph.org
A requiem mass was recently held at the CHSM chapel to honor the memory of departed alumnae and relatives. Husbands, children, and siblings came to pray for their loved ones. The Events Committee is composed of Dra. Cynthia Cases and Evangeline Qua.
English proficiency development, and personality enhancement programs and activities for teachers and students are being planned in coordination with the office of the new CHSM President. Lifestyle enrichment seminars are also being scheduled for the alumni.
Giving back to our God for the blessings of family and friends is one of the priority projects of the alumni. We therefore ask for suggestions on how to conduct outreach programs for the marginalized members of our community.
