The Alumni Association of the Bishop Heber College felicitated the City Police Commissioner, T.P. Sundaramoorthy, recently, in association with the college management.

Mr. Sundaramoorthy, who had completed B.A. history in the college, was glad to be in the list of alumni comprising IAS, IPS and judicial officers. Alumni holding high positions are usually felicitated on January 26 every year when the association celebrates its Annual Day.

The association plans to introduce counselling and first-aid training for students.

The former Vice-Chancellor of the Pondicherry University, A. Gnanam, the chief guest, said hostels were not just a home away from home but classrooms away from classrooms.

Both Dr. Gnanam as well as K. Meena, Convenor, Vice-Chancellor Committee, Bharathidasan University, goaded the students to equip themselves with communicative skills to take challenges and competitions in their stride.

P.P. Mathur, co-ordinator and Head, Bio Informatics Centre, Pondicherry, was the other dignitary to offer felicitations.
