THE ICT scholars of the Provincial Government of Negros Occidental have presented their outputs to Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson during the Thanksgiving Program and Presentation of Outputs held at the STI-West Negros University in Bacolod City Tuesday, August 2, 2022.

The scholars are grantees of the ICT scholarships under the Negros Occidental Scholarship Program (NOSP). They are taking Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.

The scholars conceptualized and developed systems showcasing their skills in software development and applications.

Lacson thanked the university for providing the scholars the knowledge they need to become effective “contributors” to the community.

He also thanked the NOSP led by Karen Dinsay for its sincere effort in promoting Negrense youth empowerment, as well as the parents of the scholars for their support and encouragement.

“Covid-19 and its consequent political, economic, health and social repercussions have clearly accelerated the need for digital transformation,” the governor said, as he lauded the scholars for their academic accomplishments.

“May you advance to be innovative and progressive individuals, and responsible citizens of our province and country,” he told the scholars.

Lacson added that, “given your training, you have the capacity to create solutions based on the needs we are currently facing and are going to face in the future.”

Also present at the activity were STI-West Negros University Executive Vice President Dr. Ryan Mark Molina, CICT Dean Dr. Mae Lodana, and Dinsay, among others. (PR)
