Cebu City National Science High School Alumni Foundation

Award of Excellence

(Speech delivered by Dr. Vinci L. Urgel, president of the CCNSHS Alumni Foundation, Inc., during the awarding of the first batch of recipients of the CCNSHS Batch 1980 Award of Excellence on April 5, 2011.)
In the desire to bring back to consciousness the essence of the existence of the Cebu City National Science High School which is to give bright and gifted students a quality education steeped towards the advancement of science and math, the CCNSHS Alumni Foundation, Inc. in cooperation with the CCNSHS Batch 1980 created this Award of Excellence. While the award is given in recognition of the outstanding achievement of each honoree, the real intention is to spark interest among the students in the core areas of Science, Math and English. This ember of interest will hopefully translate into a burning desire to excel in these same areas. The sponsoring batch graduated from this school 31 years ago, but its love for the school has never waned. Answering the call of the Alumni Foundation to put up worthwhile projects to support the school, the members of the batch pooled their resources together to be able to fund this program. This afternoon, we will award three students and their teacher-coaches for placing first in regional inter-school competitions. We hope that the other students in attendance will be inspired and aspire for this Award.
