As the seniors walk the halls of Pisay for the last time as students, they will experience one last privilege and honor before leaving their alma mater -- having Secretary Mario G. Montejo as their guest speaker for the campus’ 11th Commencement Exercises on March 26, 2012 at the PSHS-BRC Auditorium.
Along with him is Undersecretary Carol Yorobe; Tomas Brinas, the regional director of DOST; and Dr. Josette Biyo, the Executive Director of the Philippine Science High School System.
Sec. Montejo was appointed by Pres. Aquino on June 29, 2010. Using Filipino technology, he created the featured slides and waves at the amusement park Water Fun. Montejo studied at the University of the Philippines, Diliman in Quezon City and graduated with a mechanical engineering degree in 1975. Aside from his Cabinet position, Montejo is also the CEO of Tree Top Adventure Philippines (TTA), which is based in Subic. TTA operates various rides and attractions at Camp John Hay, including the canopy ride, the Superman Ride, the Silver Surfer and the Interactive Free Fall.
