PI GAMMA MU MOURNS LOSS OF PROF. OFELIA R. ANGANGCO

Angangco Professor Emeritus, Ofelia Regala Angangco, of the University of the Philippines – Diliman, passed away on July 19, 2019 at the ripe age of 93.  Prof. Angangco graduated magna cum laude from the Department of Sociology, University of the Philippines, where she later served as full professor, Chair of the Department of Sociology, and Professor Emeritus.  Prof. Angangco holds the distinction of being the last Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University which evolved into a tri-college, namely, the College of Social Sciences and Philosophy, the College of Arts and Letters, and the College of Science. 

As an officer of the Philippines Alpha Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu, she was one of those who suggested that the name of our Society be changed from Pi Gamma Mu Honor Society in Social Sciences into Pi Gamma Mu International Honor Society in Social Sciences because of the membership of the Philippine Alpha Chapter.  Because the term of office of the officers in her chapter was short and did not afford them enough time to complete planned projects, she suggested increasing the number of years in office, which was adopted by the Chapter's general assembly.  She was instrumental in the establishment of the Pi Gamma Mu Professorial Chair in Social Sciences for social science faculty members at the University of the Philippines, priority being given to Pi Gamma Mu members.  The chair continues to be granted to a deserving faculty member annually.

Under her leadership, the Philippines Alpha Chapter was named to the Pi Gamma Mu Chapter Honor Rolls several times.  The chapter regularly sends a delegation of officers and students thousands of miles across the globe to attend Pi Gamma Mu Conventions.  In recognition of her good work on behalf of the Society as a whole, the Board of Trustees nominated Prof. Angangco to serve as the Pi Gamma Mu Governor for the Philippines.  She faithfully fulfilled that role for many years.  Prof. Angangco is deeply missed by all of her friends and colleagues at Pi Gamma Mu, the University of the Philippines, Diliman Preparatory School, the many other organizations with whom she worked, and her friends and family.
