Lizza Joaquin Osborn - A Gonzaga University MBA graduate

Lizza's venture into activities she liked - running a marathon [exclusively to raise funds for the Leukemia Society] accepting a human resource management job high up at Park City, Utah, and deciding to pursue a master's degree
was characteristic of this young lady.

When she opted to try another career, she did not hesitate to leave a marketing position at Couer D'Lane Resort in Idaho and began to work for a pharmaceutical firm.

She liked it and soon was hired by Glaxo where she is happily working today. In fact, it was Glaxo who sponsored her MBA studies.

Since she already had experienced the quality education that Jesuits were known for, [she graduated with a Bachelors degree at University of San Francisco with a major in Hotel and Restaurant Mgmt.], she chose Gonzaga University, which is named after a Jesuit Saint Aloysius Gonzaga.

Lizza, very determined to pursue her MBA, took up a part-time study load and so after four years she finally got her degree.

When she announced the commencement date for her graduation rites at Gonzaga, Chita and I, did not hesitate to confirm our presence on this special occasion - Lizza the only MBA holder [I hhold a non degree post grad at Ryerson Institute of Technology for Radio TV] in our family, the youngest of five children yet.

Chita and I do bask in our reflected glory. Alleluia!
