LOOK| The collegiate level conducted its 12th flag-raising ceremony on Wednesday, April 26 at the AC- EZE stage. It was sponsored by the College of Arts, Sciences, and Education.
The program started with an invocation led by Marvin B. Josue, an ABCM fourth year student, who left powerful words: “When a problem comes into your life, believe in yourself and your abilities, and always think that everything has meaning and purpose.” It was followed by the singing of the Philippine National Anthem conducted by Kathlyn C. Luarez, a BSED-2A student; Panatang Makabayan by Jonard D. Balinbin, a BSED-3A student; and Vizcaya Hymn by Lilibeth D. Pulista, a BSED-3A student. The reading of the AC Mission, Vision, Goals and Objectives, and Core Values was led by Marc Anthony O. Jacob, a BSED-3A student.
Announcements and updates from the deans and heads of offices followed. Engr. Josephine P. Jasmin, Vice President for Administration, advised everyone to stay hydrated during these times of extreme heat. She also urged everyone to wear face masks as the province is on level 1 COVID alert.
In addition, Engr. Eloisa T. Sentillas, adviser of the Junior Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers- Aldersgate College Student Chapter (JPICE-ACSC), proudly announced the Acians who participated and bagged awards in the recently concluded Regional Civil Engineering Students Summit 2023 held at Cagayan State University in Tuguegarao City last April 24–25.
Thereafter, Rev. Dr. Micah Ryan B. Ramel delivered his inspirational message, wherein he talked about the tomato as a symbol of every Novo-Vizcayano’s agri-entrepreneur family.
“I would like to emphasize that this is an institutional drive so that we may be able to contribute to the betterment of the well- being of our agri- entrepreneurs and this is led at AC by the College of Business, Management and Accountancy, but it is a concerted effort between and among our programs and units, he said.” “This week, our drive is to create more value for the tomato and soon for the other products of the province, he added.”
The ceremony ended with the singing of the AC hymn conducted by Maryjoyce Princess M. Apiit, a BSED-3A student, followed by the picture-taking of all the employees.#
