CEBU CITY (Feb. 28, 2017) — Representatives from 30 out of 54 alumni batches from 1962 to 2016 of what is now Don Bosco Technical College (DBTC) elected their nine Trustees, who subsequently elected Jef Goopio Calomarde of Batch 1980 as president.
The new president and trustees of Don Bosco Cebu Alumni, Inc. (DBCAI) will serve a 2-year term in 2017 and 2018 to serve the past pupils of DBTC, known more to many alumni as Cebu Boys Town in the 60’s and mid-70’s, Don Bosco Technical High School towards the 90’s, and until of late, Don Bosco Technology Center.
