ASP Welcomes New Officers and Trustees

By Tiffany Tan, outgoing ASP Board Secretary

“I am so thankful for the trust, confidence and support given to me by my ASP family” the words said by Ms. Mary Janette Peña after she was elected as the new ASP National President last May 12, 2012 at Kamay Kainan, Kalayaan, Quezon City.

The election followed after a sumptuous thanksgiving lunch to honor and thank the outgoing Trustees for their valuable contributions to ASP. It was also an opportunity to welcome the incoming Officers and Trustees.

ASP Chair Emeritus, Dang Koe, gave a short presentation on the history and accomplishments of ASP. She also briefed the new Trustees of their primary duties and responsibilities, before the election of officers.

"I was no longer afraid to move, because I already saw the models to emulate to be a good ASP Leader. Wala akong alam, but because you are there, marami akong nalalaman. Wala akong lakas, but because Cavite is behind me, kaya ako may kalakasan. Wala akong power, but because God is in me, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me..." part of the text message that Ms. Peña sent to me in the morning of May 14, 2012.
