Violeta M. Alqueza: A salute to a fine lady and a dear NDKC faculty

We are all saddened with the passing away of a beautiful woman inside out – Dr. Violeta M. Alqueza whom I consider as one of the most loved teachers in Notre Dame of Kidapawan College.

Maam Violy as we call her has touched the lives of many students and teachers as she had generously given her commitment as a Marist mission partner of NDKC. She is a perfect example of a Marist educator who had lived a simple way of life. Her love of work has always been and will always be an inspiration for all of us to work for the greater glory of God.

Words are not enough to describe Maam Violy’s contribution as an intelligent and considerate teacher, guidance counselor, and administrator. Like the late president Corazon Aquino, Maam Violy’s religiosity allowed her to overcome many obstacles in her life. Hence, her gentle remarks made everyone “at home” with her company.

I thank the Lord for allowing us to experience life with a very fine lady.

On behalf of the Faculty-Employees Association of the Notre Dame of Kidapawan College, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to the bereaved family of Dr. Violeta M. Alqueza.

To Maam Violy, we all know that you are now with God in heaven. Thank you for your gift of presence and we just want you to know that “you will always be remembered.”
