Dominguez gets named as Ateneo’s outstanding alumnus
The Finance Secretary has been named as one of Ateneo’s best products.
Finance Secretary Carlos “Sonny” Dominguez III felt honored and surprised as he was hailed as an outstanding alumnus of the prestigious Ateneo de Manila University.
His alma mater gave him the commendation and got him as graduation speaker for the Ateneo Graduate School of Business.
Sadly, Dominguez was not able to attend the ceremony so he assigned fellow Atenean, Undersecretary Karl Kendrick Chua, to read his supposed speech on his behalf.
“I am not sure what exactly I have done to deserve this honor. I suppose it gives me the privilege of badgering you from time to time to contribute talent for government work,” Dominguez said.
More than enriching themselves, the Cabinet official said the business graduates should work to improve Filipino living conditions for the betterment of all as “men for others.”
“The Ateneo Graduate School of Business must be a functional asset for cultivating a culture of entrepreneurship for our society. That is the only advice I can leave you,” he added.
Who will heed his call?
