Two new professorial chair endowments have been solicited with the help of Dr. Warren Yow for UP Manila Centennial Celebration which will be presented to the College on its 93rd Foundation Day celebration on February 8, 2008.
The "Dr. Tung Tsun Tang Professorial Chair" is given by Mrs. Betty Tang and her two sons in memory of Dr. Tang whom they lost in 1997 to cancer. The donation is being made "in recognition of dental educators whose many sacrifices and dedication make it possible to educate students in the profession of Dentistry."
Dr. Tang obtained his BS (1972) from St Loius University and DDS (1974) from Washington University, St Louis, Missouri USA. He had a successful dental practice spanning 20 years of excellent service, care and compassion for his patients.
The other grant comes from an alumnus of the UP College of Dentistry, Dr. Dennis Li, who graduated cum laude in 1971. Married to Mrs. Rosanna Li, they have two children and presently reside in his homeland, Hongkong.
Dr. Li maintains a busy practice and constantly keeps abreast of the latest in Dentistry by regularly attending postgraduate continuing education courses. He is also active in community service, having served as the Past President of the Lions Club International District 303, among other leadership positions in various service organizations.
The Professorial Chair is being offered in appreciation of excellent education bestowed by UP on Dr. Li and in recognition of the hard work and dedication of the many past, present and future educators
of UP College of Dentistry.
Dr. S. Sotelo
