Love and Light
May 31, 2020
To the Assumption Community of AC San Lorenzo,
Today, May 31, 2020, is the last day of my term as president of Assumption College San Lorenzo. It has been my honor and privilege to have served you in the best way I knew how.
At this moment, I am here to share with you three things very dear to me. First, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support over the last four years. You have been patient with me, you have been open and caring in our efforts to bring AC San Lorenzo to an even higher level in a New Ecology of Learning for the 21st Century. As you know, Assumption College was just granted, once again, Level IV accreditation by PAASCU. This is the highest level to be awarded to any school or university in the Philippines.
Second, because of the ECQ, I was not able to introduce the new president, Dr. Angela “Ola” Regala. So, I want to take this opportunity to let you know the school is in very good and caring hands. Ola is a person of faith who loves the school and what it stands for. She will solidify the institution’s efforts to implement our new curriculum – we call “ABLe.” Ola moves from being Dean of the College to the Presidency. She will lead the school through the unique challenge to make real, “Campus Online.” Assumption, under her leadership will bring to “Learning From Home” (LFH) a strong sense of person orientation and core values with emphasis on character formation. The new platform of LFH will further enhance the school’s mission to graduate, “Women of Faith and Women of Action.” Ola has a robust team to work with her at each level to meet this challenge.
The third issue I want to address here is about the context AC – Sisters, faculty, staff, parents and students – need to embrace. It seems we have a “perfect-storm” brewing while we also have a new dawn rising. The storm is clearly the coronavirus that resulted in loss of jobs, of income, and of human lives. On top of this there is the frustration and depression now coming to the surface in several countries, including ours, because people are angry with their leaders, with ineffective political systems, where there is not enough concern for the planet and the peripheries of society. Social media tells us – this emotion is reaching a boiling point. Simultaneously, humanity has come to a crossroad – which way to go? It warms our hearts to know there are signs everywhere that people have returned to their humanness and their Godliness.
During the next school year, June 2020 to May 2021 there will be many “learning moments” for our students and their families while we bring the Campus to them Online. Ola and her team will stay steady at the helm of Assumption San Lorenzo. They have their eyes on the North Star – God who loves and navigates the universe toward Oneness. They will follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ. He will lead us there.
Again, my deepest gratitude to you. Trust the AC Team. They are always there for you. Dear parents, at Assumption your daughter is not just a number, not just a student … at Assumption she is a person who is loved and directed toward her full flowering. The faculty and staff give all their energy to make sure she has the place to blossom.
In God’s tender love
Carmen Valdés, PhD

Dr. Angela Fabiola Regala officially took her Oath as the 10th President of Assumption College during her Investiture Ceremony held last August 26, 2020. At the momentous event, this was speech she gave.
A personal message from former president Dr. Carmen Valdes | Today, May 31, 2020, is the last day of my term as president of Assumption College San Lorenzo. It has been my honor and privilege to have served you in the best way I knew how.
Editorial Statement on Extra Judicial Killings | We have seen in the past six weeks a laser-like focus on the need to rid the country of the scourge of drug addiction. We know the pernicious effect of drugs – on the individual, on the family, on the community and on the country as a whole.
Editorial statement on former President Ferdinand Marcos’ ‘Hero Burial’ | I believe that every person no matter what they have or have not done in their lives deserves respect even in death. However, to be buried at Libingan ng mga Bayani affirms that those buried there were indeed heroes. And there’s the rub.
An article from peopleasia.ph | “People always say that I’m outside the box. I’m very innovative, I’m very creative, I want to move things forward, I want to break the walls of Assumption, I want to be much more holistic … Let’s put it this way; I want to embrace and expand what Assumption San Lorenzo does,” Pinky shares.
An article from lifestyle.inquirer.net | Dr. Carmen Lourdes “Pinky’ Valdes, a former nun, is AC’s ninth president and the first lay leader to steer the nearly 60-year-old education institution known for producing alumnae who blaze trails in government service, the arts and business.
Published on opinion.inquirer.net by Rina Jimenez-David | The “Parliament of the Streets,” the series of protests, marches, organizing meetings, symposia, even fashion shows, concerts and comedy acts that marked the post-Ninoy Aquino assassination period, will always be remembered as the political “coming out” of the Filipino middle class.
Featured at Philippine Daily Inquirer (World Section) | Assumption College’s new president, Dr. Carmen “Pinky” Valdes, wants to lead the youth by understanding their language and deconstructing their link to social media.
Statement on Supreme Court’s Decision Allowing Burial of Former President Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani
Judgment is not the intent here, but simply to ask for respect for the historical facts and the will of the Filipino People clearly demonstrated in the People Power Revolution of 1986.
St. Marie Eugenie, our foundress, grew up in a revolutionary society very similar to ours. She was convinced that only education can bring people to transform themselves and society.
Feature at People Asia | All her life, Pinky has had a unique way of looking at the world. “I believe life is much better than people think,” she explains. “I always like to look at the whole picture because you’ll see that there is more positive than negative.”
As we mourn the deaeth of Kian, we mourn with cries for due process and justice in our country. In the face of such injustice, we join our voices with our colleagues in many academic institutions who stand by the truth: “we are our brother’s keeper.”
To students I say: be a “Horatio” for each other. See the nobility in the heart of your classmate and in your teachers and parents, too. To teachers I say, it is our call to see beyond the “shell” of fear and confusion in our students; and with tenderness, nurture the nobility in every student’s heart.
We, as a school, are dedicated to the developmenet of the young – we should always speak and stand for the rights of the children and pre-teens. Be their voice wherever you are.
Keep this in mind the next time you are about to repeat a rumor or spread gossip. “Take a moment to filter what you’re going to say. The first filter is Truth; the second is Goodness, and the third is Usefulness.”
On my way out, after I received his gift, I was ready to step out already when he held my arm and said, “Wait. Please let me give you a special blessing. I want you to know I am with you as you face trials in your ministry in your diocese.”
