Asst. Prof. Monaliza Adviento-Maghanoy (1982-2024)

Salamat, Ma’am Mona!

The UP College of Human Kinetics Community has lost a Dear Colleague.

Asst. Prof. Monaliza Adviento Maghanoy passed away on March 15, 2024. She was 41, and would have turned 42 on April 6.

Referred by many as Ma’am Mona, she was a devoted mother, loving daughter and caring sister, a dear friend and colleague, a generous mentor and counselor. In the span of time she has served the University as a treasured member of the UP CHK faculty, she has touched the lives of, and inspired so many. Ma’am Mona exemplified how time is such a precious gift as she unselfishly shared this to those dear to her. As she treasured and took pride in being a mother, she passionately strived to be present for her family, friends, and students.

She served as Acting Chairperson at UP Varsity Sports Program where she was a counsel to many UP student-athletes. She was a resolute advocate of her field of expertise as Co-Chair of the Sport & Exercise Psychology Philippines.

While we grieve our loss for the passing of a dear member of our CHK Family, the UP CHK will be setting up an interim memorial for our Dear Ma’am Mona at the Varsity Training Center lobby starting March 17 for everyone who wish to pay respects and tribute to her.

Her wake will also be held at the St. Peter Memorial Chapels Commonwealth at Chapel 207 from the evening of March 17 to March 20, and then at Forest Park Memorial in Caloocan on March 21.

As we seek our way to express our grief, may we also find the opportunity to celebrate how Ma’am Mona lived her life generously.
