The Shibboleth Wall

96th UP Vanguard Incorporated Homecoming

The SHIBBOLETH WALL is the physical manifestation of every Vanguard’s commitment and unwavering loyalty to the UP Vanguard and the Corps of Cadets. It embodies the hollowed words by which Vanguards live their lives—values that define the men and women of the “chosen few”:

DUTY well performed,

HONOR untarnished,

and COUNTRY before self.

All Vanguards—spread throughout the UP System—are drilled on the enormous and unenviable task of service and sacrifice since their cadet days. The Shibboleth was and still is the metric by which all undertakings are measured by those who call themselves “gentlemen of the finest order.”

The Shibboleth Wall thus reignites the commitment to all Vanguards. It orders the Vanguards to go back to their most elemental values, to carry them once again and shine light as we thread the unbeaten path. The Wall serves as a fraternal rallying point, as much as the Shibboleth is the Vanguard’s cry, of gathering together and spreading out—to serve well beyond one’s comfort.

The Shibboleth Wall and the values it epitomizes do not distinguish the souls it touches. As it reveals our principles, so does our faith that the same may be embraced by all Filipinos.

In this wall, we are united. With this wall, we show our strength. Through this wall, we lead the way.
