Talento Cebuanos

In my diary

THE YOUTH need role models from all walks of life. Success stories serve as guideposts on how initiatives to better one’s life are attainable through industry and creativity.

On May 11, the Speechcom culminating activity will feature

“Talento Cebuanos” Dexter Alazas, Ria Lidia Espina and Robby Alugar at Ayala Center Cebu, 1:30 p.m. This project is inspired by the Perlas Awards on valuable Filipinos, and supported by the Education Committee of Zonta Club of Cebu 1, Adopt-a-School Project and Zonta 1 Z Club.

The event is chaired by Zontians Rufina Tanchan and Matt Baguia, and University of San Jose-Recoletos’ College of Arts and Sciences led by dean, doctor Glenn Pajares, who just arrived from the United States. Pajares received the ”badge,” a completion of American English E-Teacher Program (part of Teaching Grammar Communicatively, a self-paced Massive Open Online Course, developed by World Learning.) Sponsored by the US Department of State and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the program makes it easier to adapt English lessons to the needs of the students.

Speechcom 2019 participants and guest schools will pay tribute to the awardees. The past Perlas Awardees and Talento Cebuanos will confer the awards.
