Ma. Luz Salazar (aka Marilu aka Boots) attended SMC and was in Grade 3B, 4B, and 5B.

“After SMC,  I studied at Philippine Science High School,  then University of the Philippines (undergrad).   I pursued graduate studies at Universities of Besançon,  Bordeaux, and Strasbourg in France.

Now I’m a happy retiree from the University of Texas and Texas A&M University Systems.  I was a professor, director and executive director at different departments.  I retired in 2015 and consulted part-time up to 2017.

Now I volunteer, teaching ESL and Latin dance cardio.  I also do meditation (aside from praying everyday ). I play tennis, swim, do yoga, zumba, draw, paint, read and do sewing, cooking (love eating).  I’m just happy and grateful to lead a ‘regular’ and normal’ life.  I married a good man and have a strong network of support from church, temple, family, relatives and friends!  ”
