(Tarlac City and Tarlac Province)


The LOCAL VIEW batch mates have basically remained and lived in Tarlac. They keep the knot that ties all the bonds of all the batch mates. It is the home of THS BATCH 72. It is here in Tarlac High School, where everyone who graduated in 1972 has something to remember. And each one will always have a story to tell, an event to remember, a keepsake to hold on and a memory to rekindle.

A trivia: When Eric Aguinaldo spoke with Aurora Bartolo regarding a grand reunion in 2007, it was a meeting of agreement. Both worked on the project, and Aurora sailed back to her home in Maryland in the US and began the journey. To incite excitement and spread the news, Aurora found Edgar Santiago and was tapped to become part of the team. Ric Manlutac and Tibo Tan joined in along with Adela Manlutac. Rene Magno was also contacted.

In Tarlac City, Eric continued the project and had Salvacion Cabalu and Arceli Dominguez teaming up for a meeting and started gathering former graduates of THS 1972.

The LOCALS have their own story, a real good one. The biggest effort done was gathering 100 plus batch mates for a holiday party which re-introduced former graduates and offered a place to reminisce and reacquaint themselves. It was a party to behold. All the efforts put in were by the unified THS72 Local Team.
