The PCU community condoles with the family of former President of the Philippines, Benigno Aquino III, who passed away morning of 24th June 2021.
The son of democracy icons, Benigno Aquino, Jr. and former President Corazon C. Aquino, President Noynoy, as he was fondly called, paved the way for the country’s development, surpassing the economic gains of his predecessor.
Rappler, during a 25th June 2016 interview wrote,
“In his farewell addresses to different departments and offices in his final week as Chief Executive, Aquino has the same message: After his roller coaster of emotions over the last 6 years, he is getting off with a smile, his head held high.”
As he leaves this world, the PCU community sends him off with a promise that like him, we will continue to shape and witness among our students and stakeholders what faith, character, and service genuinely mean.
