Asia Pacific College (APC) beamed with pride last September 11, 2019, as the institution acknowledged the honor students for their achievements last school year (2018 – 2019).
Led by the APC Chorale, the celebration began with the singing of the Philippine National Anthem and doxology. It was followed by the opening remarks of SoCIT Executive Director Rhea-Luz Valbuena.
She emphasized the importance of hardships and challenges in testing one’s strength of character and grit.
The basis of the honors list was also briefly enumerated by College Registrar Stanley Glenn Brucal, followed by the bestowment of awards to students from each of the following schools: School of Engineering (SoE), School of Multimedia & Arts (SoMA), School of Management (SoM), and the School of Computing and Information Technologies (SoCIT). Members of the APC Strings provided a wonderful intermission number.
Kirsten believes that APC students are being molded under pressure, thus they should not give up no matter what happens to achieve their long-awaited success.
Engr. Rogelio Ruzcko Tobias, Head of the Student Activities Office (SAO), gave the closing remarks filled with words of gratitude. He thanked the parents for their never-ending support for their child, the teachers for molding each student to become their very best, the executive directors for their commitment to provide good quality education, the honor students themselves for striving despite the challenges, and lastly, the Student Organization Association of Regents (SOAR) for organizing the event on behalf of SAO.
