11   Chair Of The Interim Board

Shortly before we opened the classrooms to the students, my co-revolutionists among our lineup for the old PSJ school board, elected me as chair of the interim school board of the new Philippine Embassy School in Jeddah (PESJ). The rest of the lineup had become members of the interim school board in an earlier parents assembly.

I shall always be proud to have the names of my co-members of the board alongside my own name, even when, after a school year or two, as naturally happens in any revolution over time, we would have turned into fighting each other more than we fought our adversaries.

These are my associates in the board, some of whom I will be mentioning more later than the others: Mr. Sotero Atienza, Jr., Dr. Ibrahim Bahjin, Mrs. Naima Bilaran, Mrs. Marietta Catacutan, Mr. Sulpicio Credo, Jr., Mrs. Belma Regis, Mr. Ramon Soriano, Mrs. Emma Tiama.

The good ambassador in Riyadh, who had by this time assumed the grand title of Director of all Philippine Schools in the Kingdom, His Excellency Romulo Espaldon, was an ex-officio member of the interim school board, as was his Attaché for Education and Foreign Information Officer, Prof. Abdulhussein Kashim.

The consul general in Jeddah, The Honorable Bahnarim Guinomla, now relegated to the position of Deputy to the School Director, was supposed to sit in the PESJ board in place of the ambassador for most of the time that the ambassador was not in Jeddah, but never did.
