TEN outstanding students from families of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) were recently lauded by the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) for their "exemplary efforts both in academic and non-academic field."

BPI President Cezar Consing said that the search, now on its seventh year, recognized the expat children's efforts as part of the company's unwavering commitment to promote the value of education and culture of excellence among the sons and daughters of the OFW.

This year's search highlighted eight "Ibang Klaseng Talino" awardees, and one each for "Ibang Klaseng Community Leader" and "Ibang Klaseng Artist" categories.

The 2013 BPI Ten Outstanding Expat Pinoy Children include the following:

Ibang Klaseng Talino awardees:

Alison D. Galian (De La Salle University- Manila)
Nel Jason Haw (Ateneo De Manila University)
Raoul Danniel Manuel (University of the Philippines-Visayas)
Emir Deogene Mendoza (University of the Philippines-Diliman)
Louise Ann Florelle Pasadilla (Lyceum of the Philippines University)
Cloie Anne Rabinetas (University of Santo Tomas)
Joezelle Salunga (University of the Philippines- Manila)
Joseph Kennedy Tabor Jr. (De La Salle College of Saint Benilde)

Ibang Klaseng Community Leader:
Christine Joyce Agapito (Far Eastern University)

Ibang Klaseng Artist:
Andrei Karoly Hernandez (University of San Carlos)

One of the awardees, Emir-Deogene Mendoza said that she wanted to bring her parents something that would recognize their hard work and sacrifice.

"My fellow awardees may have different sentiments, but I believe this award is not for me, this is for my Daddy and Mama," Mendoza said.

Meanwhile, Consing said that the search has also been BPI's way of honoring Expat Pinoys and their families’ contribution to the country and more importantly to the future of their children. (Sunnex)
