Netizens nix move to rename Sorsogon Nat'l High School

SORSOGON CITY—Netizens are opposing the renaming of Sorsogon National High School in honor of the deceased Dr. Salvador H. Escudero III.

Identifying themselves as alumni of said school, they have launched an online petition that urges for "the reconsideration of the intentions of some elected provincial officials."



The letter is addressed to the "Philippine Senate, House of Representatives, DepEd Officials, Sorsogon Provincial Officials Department of Education [and the] Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Sorsogon."

The petition reads:

"We don’t question the achievements of Dr. Escudero III or we find the intentions of these officials wrong, but we believe that even in his lifetime the late Dr. Escudero III did not harbor that in his demise his Alma Mater will be rename for him.

There are times that we have to honor our province mates, however, there are also times wherein we should give credence to others as in the case of Senator Teodoro De Vera of Bulusan, he being the first Sorsoganon elected in the upper house. We have also the late Congressman Vicente Peralta who stood in his oratorical best during his representation of Sorsogon in Congress. They also never dreamed to memorialize their names."

Further, it states, "We believed that the issue is not to rename SORSOGON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL instead to INSTITUTIONALIZE the name of SORSOGON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL for the institution which all of us are attach is the primary molder of what we are now, hence this petition. We are all proud to say that I am an alumnus of Sorsogon National High School.

Our collective intelligence said that the name SORSOGON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL is more than enough to etch the memories and achievement of the late Dr. Salvador H. Escudero III. That we rather honor Dr. Escudero III in a different vein but honoring him let us not forget the rather unknown alumnus who made also a big difference to the Province of Sorsogon and to our ALMA MATER.

We now call upon you to help INSTITUTIONALIZE the name of SORSOGON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL that our generations is so familiar with.

We call upon you to join our petition for there is nothing best but the name of SORSOGON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL."

As of the time of this posting, 220 supporters have signed the petition.—BICOLSTANDARD.COM Pirming enot, pirming bago.
