First of all, I would like to thank the outgoing committee for all their contribution for the past 2 years. I would like to thank Christina Chan, for giving me this opportunity to serve as President for 2019 – 2021 by declining the nomination to stand for President.
I am from the Class of 1987. I joined the Alumni in 2000. Before I became a committee member, I had helped out in all the dinners from 2001. I was a committee member since 2009 and was the secretary for 3 terms from 2009 – 2015 and then Vice President from 2017 – 2019.
When I joined the Alumni, it never crossed my mind that I would one day be the President of the Alumni. I joined the Alumni for the love of Assunta as I enjoyed my school days. I wanted to give back to the school and what better way than by serving on the Alumni. In doing so, I have made many friends of fellow Assuntarians who have become my sisters I never had, and it’s been a joy getting to know each one of them and working with some of them.
It is going to be difficult for me to emulate all the Past Presidents for what they have done. All the Past Presidents have charisma and talents of their own. Each having brought the Alumni to greater heights. It will be a tough act for me to follow. Together with this new committee, which comprises of new and younger Assuntarians, we will carry on the traditions, Breakfast with Past and Present Teachers and the picnic that was started in 2006 – in honour of Cherry Ho who mooted the idea.
Similar to my predecessors of AA Past Presidents, I will do my best to keep the Assunta Spirit Alive together with my committee during our term in office for 2019-2021:
Vice President – Yeoh Tjean Nee (Class of 1989)
Secretary – Fazlin Azrimi Abu Hassan (2001)
Treasurer – Marianne Rozario (1976)
1. Adeline Chan Poh Ann (2010)
2. Cynthia Laetitiae Leong (Cynthia Martin) (1988)
3. Jenny Adrene Khoo Huat Poh (1980)
4. Lee Bee Lean (1978)
5. Noremilia Izma Mohd Zaidun (1991)
6. Patricia Lu Pitt-Chin (Pat Lu) (1978)
In addition, we can’t do it alone without YOU. We look forward to your continued support and participation at all Assunta Alumni events. See you. 🙂
