The College of Criminal Justice Education and Forensics (CCJEF) once again takes pride in recognizing all 143 academic achievers for the 2nd Semester of School Year 2020-2021 last Friday, November 5, 2021, via Zoom and Facebook Live.
The event was formally started by Ms. Edna Marriza C. Santos, HAU Assistant Academic Vice President, in her opening remarks, extending her congratulatory message to all achievers for the last Semester. She reminded everyone of the future challenges as they progress in their field of endeavour, but the recent event is an inspiration to for them to maintain their academic success. Proceeding with words of inspiration, Officer-In-Charge University President, Mr. Leopoldo Jaime N. Valdes, centrally navigated his words to achievers and most especially, non-achievers for the last Semester, reiterating to never stop trying in reaching our goals, and that failure to be on the list does not define one and will never define who they will become. That, being competent is equally important as being compassionate and conscientious.
Prior the awarding of certificates, Mr. Anthony John Jimenez, CCJEF Program Coordinator, presented the qualifications to become a Dean’s lister and a President’s lister.
Consequently, Ms. Rachelle Mesquita of section FS-101 delivers her message on behalf of all the awardees. Stating to her message her appreciation to her parents, professors, and especially to her peers, wherein despite the current setup, the sense of camaraderie between them is strongly established. Mesquita ended her message by emphasizing, “Success is not measured by my grades, but by the experience I gained from doing each task. Every time we overcome one challenge, we gain valuable experience that builds our character and develops our skills for the long run.”
Concluding the momentous event, Dr. Niño M. Kabiling, Dean of CCJEF, extended his proud message to all academic achievers for the last Semester, and his salute to all parents, guardians, and friends for the support and encouragement as support system of the students. He wished the students to continue aiming high and to seize the moment to excel in whatever the situation is.
