Tanauan City College

At the outset of the decision of citizen Hon. Mayor Antonio C. Halili to run for the chief executive position of the city of Tanauan, the major platform of his administration was to provide free college education to his city mates many of who, do not have the resources to access and complete tertiary educaiton.

Upon his victory in the election, he requested his wife Ms. Gina Yson who belongs to a family of educators, to get her former high school classmates to fast track the organization of a free community college using the existing facilities of the city high school for evening classes.

Led by Mr. Benjamin A. Carandang together with the educators of Tanauan Institute Batch '63 who were active in the campaign trail, the group first established their vision of coming up with not just a college but a school that shall be worthy of the names of the city's model heroes, Gat. Apolinario Mabini and Pres. Jose P. Laurel. In no time at all, the group of Batch '63 consulted with and modeled the community college from the most outstanding colleges in the country.

In the process of organization the college, the citizens of Tanauan rallied to support the project which made it easy to get the legislative branch to formally craft the charter of the school. Thus, the Tanauan City College was born on August 29, 2013 a landmark development in the City of Tanauan.

It is a special honor and a privilege to begin my term as president of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Our outgoing president, Greg Petsko, deserves an enormous thank you from all of us— for guiding the society so ably and for making us feel that we really are a part of ASBMB by writing such engaging, thought-provoking and humorous columns. He has been a terrific role model, and his shoes will be impossible to fill. Luckily, for all of us, Greg will continue to serve as an officer of the society for an additional year, in the role of past-president. I am especially grateful that I will be able to rely on his wise counsel during my term.

I hold a special place for ASBMB in my scientific heart. I had the privilege of starting my life as a biochemist while still an undergraduate student, first during a brief summer stint with Don Lightfoot at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University and then returning to my undergraduate University of California, Berkeley, campus and the lab of Mike Chamberlin, where I worked on Escherichia coli RNA polymerase for two years. My project culminated in a first author paper in the Journal of Biological Chemistry. At the time, several of the Berkeley faculty members were JBC editorial board members, and I remember asking Clint Ballou for guidance on how to prepare a figure on a day when Chamberlin wasn’t around. Teasing me, he took out a giant pair of scissors as if to slice my artwork— I almost died. This was, of course, at a time when figures were drawn by hand— computers were not yet tools at every desk. Publishing that first paper in JBC and receiving those reprints with my name in print for the first time made me feel like an ASBMB member for life. Being elected president is thus a special honor for me, and I will do my best to serve you, our members, during my term.

Yours Truly,
Mr. President
