Mr. Pulgencio Visits Alumni in South Korea

Mr. Pulgencio took his first trip ever to South Korea this August to visit Southwestern Academy Alumni. On August 4, 2011, he held an alumni event hosted by the parents of Min Sung Kim at the Sky Valley Country Center. He was reunited with twenty-one alumni who graduated from between 1990-2009. The guests enjoyed sharing Southwestern stories, and they mentioned how the English skills Mr. Pulgencio taught them in high school was key to the success they have now. 

Mr. Pulgencio enjoyed golfing with some graduates from 1997, who are now successful businessmen. He also was able to enjoy excellent dinners with alumni who couldn't make it to the event. 

Mr. Pulgencio was in South Korea from August 4-11, and had a wonderful time catching up with "kids," some of which, he hadn't seen in fifteen years. Many of his previous students were married and he had the pleasure of meeting their children. 

Mr. Pulgencio thanks everyone for their wonderful hospitality and for making the trip to come to see him!
