Jose Rizal High School, one of the two Arellano University campuses in Malabon City, was the venue for this year’s Founder’s Day, the celebration of the birth anniversary of the founder and first President of Arellano University, Mr. Florentino Cayco Sr. The theme of the celebration was Florentino Cayco Sr. Founder, Father, Friend, Educator, Nationalist and Democratic Leader.
Members of the Cayco family, administration officials, deans and program chairs and teachers attended the program. Students were also present in spite of the ‘no-class’ declaration due to the nation-wide jeepney strike.
