To recognize the talents and efforts of scholars last Academic Year 2020-2021, Pasidungog, the Philippine Science High School– Eastern Visayas Campus (PSHS-EVC) Virtual Recognition Program, was streamed live on EVC Direct, the PSHS-EVC’s official Facebook group, last September 24.
Before the recognition program, the oath-taking of the new set of Student Alliance (SA) officers, headed by Yvonne Esperas, PSHS-EVC Officer in Charge (OIC) – Campus Director, was conducted.
Elected SA President, Nicole Erroba stated, “We will try to make sure that no student will be left behind,” as she gave her inaugural speech.
The recognition program was then formally opened by Ana Riza Gozon, OIC-Curriculum Instruction Division (CID) Chief with her opening remarks. This was then followed by a speech by guest speaker, Dr. Angela Horca-Delfin, a PSHS-EVC Alumna and Registered Nurse.
Horca-Delfin talked about her experience as an average student in PSHS, specifically her struggles with the subjects that were heavy on Math and Science and highlighted the fact that although she was average, she still achieved something in the end and found happiness in it.
“Impossible? No. Achievable? Yes,” she quoted.
The awarding of Director’s Listers and Special Awardees from all grade levels began shortly after, with song and dance intermission numbers in-between.
To conclude the event, Esperas congratulated the scholars and emphasized that alongside achieving academic excellence is responsibility.
“We all need each other to grow, so I enjoin you to be one with us in working hand-in-hand for the greater good of everyone,” she said, encouraging students to share both their talents and knowledge to others.
