This is a belated post about an idol, a high school classmate who's gone through everything in life - Reuel. He was our class salututorian. He made UPCAT and together with the rest of us; Edita, the validictorian, Joy, Ofelia, Greg, Victor, Charlie, Sue, Hernani, Lito, Chuchi, Ed, Carolina sailed through the challenging UP Diliman brand of free and analytical thinking university environment.
Fast forward, today, Reuel Aguila is now a Professor at UP Diliman; Phd candidate. Aside from this, and I was not really surprised to know; the Professor is a Carlos Palanca Awards Hall of Famer. This, and a host of other accolades he would normally refuse to discuss.
What an honor to have had the pleasure of his company. Someone who walks the talk about freedom, justice, nationalism, and how to preserve and encourage such noble ideals.
Find a link about the Professor here.
I am happy and proud to be a classmate.
And BTW, his facebook page invites us to visit his multiply site as well :-) Certainly caught the fb bug
