University President Fr. Dionisio M. Miranda, SVD, Peter Damian Savellon Najarro, and Dr. Romola Savellon signed the memorandum of agreement on the Savellon Art Collection. Fr. Miranda, SVD and Ms. Caroline Tan- Porras, president of Clint Kamms Corporation, unveiled the gift from Clint Kamms Corporation to USC Museum.
