Brod Generoso Tiangco Abes Ф1971

A warm smile greeted me across the coffee shop as I met Brod Gene. In the intimate setting of a warm summer morning with the smell of coffee and fresh bread in the air, Brod Gene's friendly and caring demeanor will instantly make you feel at home. Although already in his senior years, his face beams with the spirit of youth. Even with all the life achievements under his belt, he shows no sign of slowing down. It is with his latest achievement, the honor of the title professor emeritus, that I've come to discover his story to share with the rest of the brods of this fraternity.

Dr. Mark Anthony Gingco Mariñas Φ1998, now a renowned surgeon in Dipolog City, entered the Venerable Fold in 1998 and graduated from the College of Medicine in 2003.  

He was a renaissance man of sorts – a man of vastly diverse interests and talents. He was an ardent sportsman since his high school years and practiced taekwondo and wushu as a clinical clerk. He is also a painter, a graphic artist, a sculptor and avid photographer with many award-winning masterpieces in his portfolio. Also a musician, he plays the guitar, harmonica and the glockenspiel.
