Engr. Faizal Hasiman, proprietor of Alraf construction firm, has been inducted as the pioneering president of the Adamson University Alumni Association-Zamboanga Peninsula chapter.

This, as the Adamson University has started organizing its alumni associations in the regions, which is aimed to strengthen ties among the university alumni.

Hasiman, who is a civil engineer and a sanitary engineer by profession, has been inducted as the pioneering president having been awarded as outstanding alumnus of Adamson University.

Inducted together with Hasiman as pioneering officers of the Adamson University Alumni Association-Zamboanga Peninsula chapter were: Gilbert Laxamana, vice-president (internal); Mike Cases, vice-president (external); Aylene Ingkoh, secretary; Edgar Lagonera, treasurer; Arshid Julkipli, auditor; and, Luis Matias, public information officer.

They were inducted last Saturday by no less than Adamson University President Fr. Gregorio Bañaga, who along with Engr. Manny Wong,  national alumni president and other alumni, flew to this city.

Bañaga encouraged the officers of the Zamboanga Peninsula chapter to get involved in community activities like sports.

Bañaga was happy to note that the Zamboanga Peninsula chapter was the largest group of Adamson alumni they ever met in their regional sorties here in Mindanao.

Hasiman, being the pioneering president of the alumni association in the region, played host last Saturday to a golf tournament dubbed as the Adamson University Alumni Open Tournament.

Hasiman, who graduated in 1981, said they intend to implement programs in the region in line with the mission and vision of the university.

The Adamson University Alumni Association-Zamboanga Peninsula chapter was organized through the joined efforts of Engr. Bong Nuño, the organizing director, Hasiman and other alumni.

Meanwhile, Hasiman has been awarded as outstanding alumni of Adamson since he started modestly in his professional career as a project engineer at the Metropolitan Waterworks Sewerage Systems in 1982 until he became as the only Triple A contractor in Zamboanga City.

Hasiman attributes his success to his core values of patience, hard work, determination, sincerity and goodwill towards his fellowmen.

He stressed that profit is not the main consideration in undertaking projects. If he sees that a project would be vital to the peace and order, progress and development of the area, he won’t hesitate to bid and undertake it.

“This is my mission and my way of thanking Allah for all the blessings He has showered upon me,” he proclaimed. – Bong Garcia, Jr.
