RIP Bro. Rolly Dizon, FSC

Former DLSU President and staunch supporter of the scholastic chess movement in the Philippines Brother Rolly Dizon died last April 25, 2012 at the age of 68.

Brother Rolly was very instrumental in the formation of the DEPED-National Chess Academy linkage and was for some time the President of the said linkage. He was a member of the NCFP Chess in Schools Committee and was one of the moving force in the group. He wrote a scholastic chess book called Chess for Filipino Children, edited by Isagani Cruz and published by Rex Publishing. I was lucky enough to have borrowed the book in the Filipiniana section of DLSU Library. Brother Rolly's foundation, The Rolly Dizon Foundation, also had chess scholars which were trained and coached by MERALCO Chess Club's resident coach FIDE Instructor Norlito Bersamina.

Thank you so much for the life you gave to us! The lives whom you have touched forever be remembered!

Animo La Salle!
