KUALA TERENGGANU: After 88 years’ existence, one of the state’s famous schools, Sekolah Menengah Sultan Sulaiman (SMKSS) here finally has an alumni association to call its own.

Over the years, SMKSS has produced some of the most well-known leaders and personalities in the country, including Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin.

Alumni also include Yayasan DiRaja Sultan Mizan chief executive director Dr Mazman Sulaiman, Berita Harian group editor Datuk Manja Ismail, and popular composer Manan Ngah.

Manan, who is the pro-tem committee vice-president, said the alumni’s objective was to gather all former SMKSS students.

The pro-tem committee that was set up to oversee the registration of the alumni association heaved a sigh of relief that the old boys could finally have a sense of nostalgic belonging.

The SMKSS alumni hope to help former students reconnect among themselves, besides giving everyone a chance to walk down memory lane once again.

“With the different background of professions among us, we also hope to build a network where we can share our experience, expertise and services,” said Manan.

The 12-member pro-tem committee is now headed by Manja, who left the school in 1980. Former students can contact committee members Dr Mazman at 019-3344777 or Asyikin Abu Samah at 013-3538787, asikin@tm.net.my, for details.
