Fr. Teodoro P. Gapuz, SVD turned 69 on July 17. Fr Ted, as everybody calls him, was greeted Happy Birthday by the deans, chairs, heads of Academic Support Staff, and the members of the SVD community, during a simple birthday party, at the Sunburst Restaurant, City Square, Tagbilaran City.
What made the occasion special was the presentation of the birthday gift to Fr. Ted by Dr. Teotima C Amborgo, the Dean of the Graduate School.
Fr Ted was appointed President of the then Divine Word College of Tagbilaran in 1976 to 1983, after his graduate studies in educational planning for an MA in Education at Stanford University, California, USA. He left as his legacy the purchase of the 7.5 hectare campus in Dampas, and the transfer of the High School Department to Janssen Heights. His most immediate assignment before HNU was Vice- President for Academic Affairs at the University of San Carlos, Cebu City on May 2005- May 2008.
