FEU chronicles bravery in building an academic legacy

Far Eastern University (FEU) gathers its alumni, faculty and members of administration, stakeholders, family, and friends to witness the premiere of the documentary “Be Brave” at the Ayala Museum.
The film is about FEU and the legacy of its founder Dr. Nicanor Reyes as told through his daughter Dr. Lourdes Reyes Montinola. It retells the vision and determination of the man who contributed to the development of the country by helping pave the way to making quality education accessible to Filipinos.
“It is our founder’s aspiration that his school’s graduates would enjoy rewarding careers that promote the country’s economic growth. This was the reason behind his choices of accountancy, law, and medicine as flagship academic programs. FEU was also first to offer night classes to provide more opportunities for students to learn,” says the school’s current president Dr. Michael Alba.
The documentary reveals more of these important milestones that influenced our current education system. John Silva, a history expert and proponent of Philippine arts and culture, gives his commentary and shares his insights on FEU’s role in society.
“Dr. Nicanor Reyes was a visionary and innovator. He introduced ideas that encouraged holistic learning,” says Gianna Montinola, VP for Corporate Affairs. “During these times that challenge our resilience and conviction, we are reminded of the legacy and noble dream of our founder. It is our hope that through Be Brave, today’s generation and the next will appreciate the true value of education.”
“Be Brave” premieres in time with the university’s 90th founding anniversary.
