MANILA, Philippines – As a businesswoman, Nicolas was vice president for Development of TLC Beatrice International Holdings Inc., a New York-based multinational company, as well as chair of the Women’s Business Council of the Philippines. She is also an advocate for women’s rights and good governance.
Indeed, her background has helped her to hit the ground running with a pro-active approach to leading the CFO. “I was a little over a month in office and barely had I warmed my seat as chair of the Commission when CFO already positioned itself at the forefront of the Philippine government’s more strategic engagement with international migration,” she shares on the commission’s achievements so far.
Last June 3, 2013, The Lewis College welcomed more than 1,000 students in the Basic and Higher Education Department with a brief but meaningful Opening Program. Students were filled with excitement and anticipation to meet their new teachers and classmates for SY 2013-2014. Highlight of this event was the arrival of TLC President, Atty. Loida Nicolas-Lewis, who flew all the way from New York, USA to visit and give an inspirational message to the students. Mrs. Lewis also welcomed the parents who were present, as she admonished the young people to live by “Ora et Labora”, or prayer and hard work.

REPORTING FROM MANILA, PHILIPPINES — The life of America’s most successful African-American Wall Street financier is remembered and celebrated in a most unlikely location, some 8,000 miles from the New York City financial hub where he rose to prominence.
In a quiet province in the Philippines, there is a school that is named after Reginald F. Lewis, who is widely regarded as one of America’s financial powerhouses. In fact, in a short 10 years since it was founded, the Lewis College has gained a good bit of attention for its academic excellence in a school that provides education for students from elementary school through college.
