Editorial: Congratulation SPC!-A A +A
Friday, February 1, 2013
SAN Pedro College (SPC) ranks eighth in the country for nursing and they even produced eight topnotchers in the December 2012 nursing licensure examinations. We cannot let such a feat go without a round of applause for us.
As a community, we take pride in the achievements of our people and the institutions that bear the mark of being Dabawenyo, and San Pedro College is among them.
We do so in the desire to encourage all other educational institutions to consistently strive for excellence as well and not fall into the trap of being diploma mills, whose only interest is to profit from the children’s school fees.
It is with this in mind that Sun.Star Davao has assigned a special page for campus news every Thursday; a page that celebrates the achievements and gives attention to activities of the different schools here.
There is no other way for our children and youth to shine except through giving them ample attention and praise.
In an environment where children are constantly encouraged and challenged, we can only expect generations who will strive to build a better place for everyone.
To some, who may have forgotten how it is to be a child or those who hold bitter memories of childhood, they might also have forgotten that it took so little to make us proud of ourselves when we were children. A little pat on the back, a simple praise are enough gestures from our elders to make us feel good about ourselves for a long time.
We’re ensuring that praises and recognition are given due space because we believe that with our little contribution, we touch the lives of the young ones and make the whole community proud; just as we all are proud now because in our city is among the best nursing schools in the country.
In that praise is a continuing challenge for SPC to remain among the top, if not the number one; and for all other schools, colleges, and universities to make their mark as well.
We’d love to hear from you the good news so we can also announce these with pride.
To SPC, congratulations again. Kudos especially to the eight graduates who made it to the top 10: Airen Tulawi Berlamino and Fritz D. Sustino at fifth place with 84.90; Maria Lourdes Isabelle L. Fernandez, Jinky Patron, and Christine C. Lua at 8th place with a score of 84.20, and at ninth place with a score of 84.00, Pamela Mae G. Cagape, Fernan Kristoffer M. Ocat, and Marie Angelique C. Go.
Continue to make your family and city proud.
