OFFICER, CONFERRED ON FR. PRESIDENT BIENVENIDO F. NEBRES, S.J.


The university community congratulates Fr. Bienvenido F. Nebres, S.J.,
President, Ateneo de Manila University, for having been accorded the
RANK OF OFFICER IN THE NATIONAL ORDER OF MERIT OF THE  FRENCH REPUBLIC
(Officier de L’odre National du Merite).  The decoration recognizes his
valuable “contribution to the development of scientific knowledge and
education in the Philippines as well as his dedication to the promotion
of relations between French and Philippine universities.”  The award was
conferred by decree of the President of the French Republic upon the
recommendation of the French Foreign Minister.

The National Order of Merit was created in 1963 to recognize notable
merits achieved during the course of performing state, civil or military
services, or service within the private sector.  The Order has the same
hierarchy as the Legion of Honor of the French Republic.

In 1981, Father Nebres was also conferred the Ordre de Palmes Academique
for his contributions to the French – Philippine exchange especially in
the field of Mathematics.

Fr. Nebres’ honor is very much shared with the university community.  We
congratulate Fr. Nebres for this great honor bestowed upon him
