One of Zamboanga’s best educators and wife of the late former Zamboanga City Mayor Vitaliano Agan, Nenita Agan fondly called Nits, was exalted last January for her natal day. It  coincided with her retirement from government service (Department of Education) after 34 years.

Aside from families and friends, her special wishers were Dep-Ed Division Supervisor Dr. Dolores Alcantara, Education Supervisor Aida Coyme, Dr. Evelyn Villa, Hilda Franco, Dr. Maybel Tee, Thelma Directo, and the Plagata couple. Seen also were retired Dep-Ed Dr. Kennoh and his wife, Mr. Quiling, Mrs. Amelia Natividad, and Mrs. Elena Macrohon.

Nits surprised the audience by singing the popular Visayan ballad “Usahay” while playing the piano. Her wonderful children led by City Councilor Rommel Agan sang also her favourite songs. Special presentations were also presented by Dep-Ed Planning Staff, elementary and secondary school principals.

In her touching message, Nitz thanked the people who made her years meaningful in the government service. She reminisced how she was hired by former Dep-Ed Rimando who hired her. She became the elementary principal of Ateneo de Zamboanga University Grade School too.  Her party was organized by Dr. Aida Coyme, Dr. Bebot Corteza and Daphter Villanueva. It was a wonderful journey in education for her.

God be with you always, Nitz, in your next chapter of life
