While driving my way out of the Bulaong Bus Terminal last week, I chanced upon a billboard on the right side of the road along North Osmeña Street announcing the construction of another school campus.   This is the campus of the Gen. Santos Medical Foundation, Inc., which for the past five years has been holding fort at the Yap Building near the GSC Doctor’s Hospital along the National Highway.

Incidentally, the same people behind the hospital also own the school which offers Nursing, Radio Tech, Psychlogy and Education courses.

Eventually, I found out that the new campus is scheduled for groundbreaking on the morning of August 8, 2008, (that’s tomorrow) the same day that GenSan City Mayor Jun Acharon turns FIFTY.

Anyway, the campus centerpiece is a 4-storey progressive building which can accomodate over a thousand students.

The fenced compound of the campus of GS Medical School Foundation, Inc.

Scheduled to bless the campus is Rev. Fr. Edward S. Loberiano, CP.  Leading the ground breaking will be Vice-Mayor Flor Congson, subbing for the mayor together with School President Dr. Genaro B. Valencia, Jr. and Vice-President Dr. Daniel G. Yap.
