Alimodian Firsts: Remedios Anam


Miss Remedios Anam


First Female District Supervisor

       No educator has done much for the education of our youth than Miss Remedios Anam. This lady, who is small in size but big in ideas was born on April 29, 1911 in this town to Basilio Anam and Josefa Anayas.

       Mediong, as she is fondly called by her friends, graduated valedictorian in the Alimodian Elementary School and third honors in the Iloilo Normal School, now the West Visayas State University. She finished her BSE in Manila Quezon College. She has been grades school teacher from 1931 to 1950. Then in 1951 she was promoted principal of Jordan Elementary School. In 1956 she was again promoted as district supervisor in Duenas District and served in that position until 1964.

       It is often said that although how long the procession is, it has all the possibilities of returning to its place of origin. Then in 1965 Miss Anam was transferred to her native town where she spend the remaining years of her teaching career until her retirement on April 29, 1976.

      Miss Anam spent 46 years of her life in the education of our youth that she even forgot to take a life partner. This little lady deserves the veneration of all Alimodiananons who have been under her tutelage in the grades school. She died in 1998.
