“The visionary and the builder, who dedicated their lives in pursuit of their dream of a just and humane society through an empowered and educated youth. With hard work and guided by providence, the union bore Capitol University and her sister institutions, Iligan Capitol College, Lyceum of Iligan Foundation, Bataan Heroes Memorial College, Gingoog City Colleges, and Capitol University Medical Center.

May their legacy endure in these halls we walk and in our hearts.”
