The Pi Sigma Fraternity alumni and resident delegates are holding a two-day National Convention of Sigmans on March 31 and April 1, 2023 at the University of the Philippines in Diliman.
In an interview, Emilio Emil Aguinaldo , one of the founders of the fraternity, said, “This is a momentous event. Our fraternity has been in existence for 50 years. We have established more than 70 school and community chapters all over the country in the past five decades. We know we have made relevant contributions in our society, and we want to continue doing just that, to be a positive force in society through our emphasis of being paragons of scholarship and providing service to the Filipino people.”
Aguinaldo was a freshman in 1972, the year martial law was declared, when he joined seven other U.P. Diliman freshmen and founded the Pi Sigma Fraternity anchored on its two principles: Paragon of Scholarship and Paglingkuran ang Sambayanan. The fraternity then was actively involved in the movement to restore democracy in the country.
In this year’s National Convention of Sigmans, Aguinaldo, along with fellow founders Robert Sombillo and Frank Gomez, will be meeting many fraternity brothers who are much younger than them. The delegates come from various regions of the country and from different generation, and have different experiences and competencies to share.
The primary objective of the National Convention of Sigmans is to emphasize the relevance of the fraternity through the continuous practice of its mandate of leadership through scholarship and service to the Filipino people and adapting to the exigencies of the current time. #PISigmaNatCon2023
