Remembering Rolly

Rolando Valenzuela MHPNHS-MAA

January 29, 1936 – April 5, 2017

We will all remember Rolando G. Valenzuela (“Rolly” to some, “Totek” to others) of MHPHS Class 1953 as a passionate and inspiring alumni leader who cared for and nurtured the sipirit and vision of the MHPNHS Alumni Association (MAA).

He gave all he can starting some three decades ago when it was difficult for may to heed the call of duty in the alumni leadership.

He stood up and served without reservation.

He reached out to the many alumni leaders and members to engage them to the vision of bringing back the good old days of glory of the alma mater.

During the 2016 MAA General Assembly (Araw ng Alumni), Rolly was given the Gawad Anak ng Paaralan for the long years of dedicated service to the school and the alumni association.

In response, he stood up at the podium with his undiluted passion, encouraging all alumni of Bulacan High School / Marcelo H. del Pilar High School / Marcelo H. del Pilar National High School to make the MAA vision of greatness a reality.

It was his last message of encouragement to the sons and daughters of MHPNHS.

Let us keep the message of Rolly forever etched in our hearts. Let us make it a reality.



Rolando G. Valenzuela, past secretary general and member of the board of trustees of the MHPNHS Alumni Association, passed away on April 5, 2017.
