The University of Bohol added feather on its cap when one of her students and now a registered Civil Engineer in the November 2017 Civil Engineering Licensure Examination is awarded as one of the 56th Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP) given last April 23, 2018 at Malacañan Palace, Metro Manila.
Dr. Janice Aurora Tirol-Namoc, Dean of UB Student Personnel Service (SPS) and adviser/mentor, said Ronald M. Calamba, graduated Magna Cum Laude of the College of Engineering and Technology in March 2017. Calamba became finalist in TOSP Region VII before his graduation and successfully made it to the finals.
The awarding rites were highlighted with the presence of Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque, Presidential Adviser Joey Concepcion, TOSP Founder Jose Concepcion, Jr., TOSP Pres. Marie Concepcion-Young, TOSP Alumni Community National Chair Pamela Asis-Loyugan and the TOSP Chair of the National Board of Judges Dr. William Dar.
Last year, University of Bohol received the same award with Miss Ladie Lyn G. Fuderanan from the College of Criminology.
Ronald Mainit Calamba is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Roberto G. Calamba of barangay Baang, Catigbian, Bohol.
TOSP, as an awards program, honors the country’s most notable students of the Philippines. In recognizing the best, the program seeks graduating college students who not only excel academically, but also dedicate themselves as exceptional leaders and community servants in order to make a difference in their respective circles. As the search is national in scope, all higher education institutions are encouraged to participate and nominate their school’s model students. (labboncales)
