Over the course of three days, the event buzzed with vibrant activities, kicking off with a heartwarming Thanksgiving Mass at the Maasin Cathedral. Excitement reached its peak with the eagerly awaited canvassing for the Alumni Homecoming Queen on the first day. The highlight of the second day was a parade featuring jubilarians, alumni queens, and creative float designs, culminating in a lively program at the Maasin City Gym , and concluding with an alumni gala and coronation night where winners were announced. On the third day, alumni gathered with their classmates and batchmates for a joyous Family Day, marking the perfect end to the grand festivities. Amidst cheers and applause from the spirited crowd, Maribel B. Caberte-Parungao of the Coral Jubilarians was crowned as the Alumni Homecoming Queen 2024. In the fiercely contested dance competition, the China Jubilarians emerged victorious with their enchanting theme “Enchanted Fairyland Ball,” followed by the Tin Jubilarians with their spine-chilling “Haunted Carnival Delights” performance, and the Silver Jubilarians with their mesmerizing “Masquerade” routine securing the third spot. The float competition was equally exhilarating, with the Coral Jubilarians clinching the coveted first-place trophy for their captivating display of “Cinco de Mayo”. The Tin Jubilarians secured the second spot with their impressive entry with “Haunted Carnival Delights” inspired by The Freak Show from American Horror Story, while the third place is the Pearl Jubilarian.
