On behalf of the Far Eastern University (FEU) Group of Schools and the FEU Community, we wish to offer our condolences and sympathies to the family of Mr. Henry Sy, Sr.
Mr. Sy has been universally and appropriately praised as a Visionary and as an Entrepreneur par Excellence in the fields of Retail, Banking, and Property Development.
He epitomized the working student who came from humble beginnings. We are fortunate and honored that he graduated from FEU in 1950 with the degree of Associate of Arts in Commercial Studies.
Mr. Sy next saw a private sector opportunity to help in the field of education and invested in Far Eastern University in 1989. We are appreciative of his wise guidance and support through quality Board of Director nominees and a past FEU President.
Over the years, SM Foundation has funded a large number of scholars nationwide. We at FEU are thankful for the 102 Student scholars funded by SM Foundation who studied at FEU Manila and for the 186 student scholars who finished at FEU Institute of Technology.
Mr. Sy is one of our most renowned FEU alumni, and we are grateful for all his contributions to his alma mater and to the country. He was conferred the Outstanding Alumni Award during the University’s 75th Founding Anniversary.
May he rest in peace and may his spirit live on.
Aurelio Montinola III
and the FEU Board of Trustees
