Farewell to Dr. (Fr.) Sunny Jose

Fr. Sunny Jose who served in the department of History around two decades as a professor and later as the principal of Xavier's for over eight years has retired from service on 31st April 2016. Fr. Sunny who is known for his inimitable ways of administrative skills was an epitome of calmness, decency and decorum while discharging his duties as the principal. His old students, PTA, teachers and students all gathered together on a rather warm afternoon in March to bid him farewell. Most. Rev. Dr. Soosapakiam, Archbishop of Trivandrum diocese presided over the function and spoke highly of the yeoman services that Fr. Sunny Jose rendered not only to the college but to the diocese as a whole. Adv. V. Prashanth, an alumnus of our college and  Mayor of Thiruvananthapuram Corporation and more importantly a former student of Fr. Sunny himself inaugurated the function. In his emotional speech he enumerated a number of qualities that he imbibed from Fr. Sunny. Teachers, Non-teaching staff, Alumni, PTA and Student representatives felicitated Fr. Sunny on the same day.
