This photo was sent to us by Fe Mamaril-Fauni of Batch ’71. It features that year’s staffmembers of both The Barangay (TB), which Fe edited, and Ang Baranggay (AB). The pic was taken during their graduation day and they are shown here with TB’s adviser, the late Mrs. Elma Pineda-Baking.
Aside from Mrs. Baking, the other advisers the school papers have had – or at least those known to us – include Miss Lilia Andres (AB), Miss Fe Capule (TB), and Mrs. Yolanda Perez (AB and TB).
Since a couple of years ago, The Barangay has stopped publication due to the lack of an adviser. Ma’am Yoly is still the current AB adviser and trains contestants for the English category of journalism competitions that are still being held to this day.
During our recent visit to Lakan Dula High School, Ma’am Yoly informed us that both AB and TB have for years consistently placed in the Top 5 Best School Papers. We will be getting in touch with her soon to ask her to help us complete our list of AB and TB editors-in-chief, which we are posting below.
Thanks to all those who helped us with this initial list. Please use our comment section for additional names (or corrections).
