Below is the transcript of his message from earlier today:
"Fellow administrators, deans, faculty, students, and parents. Good morning.
In this occasion of our recognition day, I would like to convey on behalf of the administration our profound recognition of your academic achievement during the previous school year 2019-2020. I learned that this is an annual event in our school, and had there been no COVID19 pandemic, this recognition program would have been one of the highlights of the annual intramurals. Nevertheless, my warm congratulations to all our academic awardees as well as the faculty and mentors.
Excellence is what makes DMSF growing. I suppose all of us have internalized our institution’s mission, vision and our avowed core values of FIRE. Faith in God, Integrity, Respect, and Excellence. At DMSF, excellence is a way of life, it is our passion. It is my wish that as we give recognition to those who excel in their studies during the past school year, all others will get the inspiration and become part also of this event or celebration next year.
Today is recognition day and while we are giving focus to our achievers, let me also take this opportunity to recognize and congratulate our faculty and alumni for sustaining the fire of excellence in bringing out the best of themselves and in leading Dr. Dhonna Leonor Cambronero to the 3rd place in the recent Physicians Licensure Medical Exam. Continue the good job. As what Winston Churchill has said, and I quote, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts”.
Ladies and gentlemen, I wish you luck. Perform even better as you get the successes that you deserve. Thank you and good morning."
