The formal announcement by the University President Fr. Primitivo Viray Jr. SJ. was made in February 16, 2013 after the deliberation and approval of the university Board of Trustees.
Mrs. Natividad emerged as the Trustees’ top choice from the other three would-be principals – Mr. Ringo Badilla, Mr. Agapito Rubio, and Mr. Honesto Bermudo. The shortlist came from the names and nominations made by the community. The selection process, which included interviews, survey and character investigation, started as early as November of the previous year.
