Recognition is finest day among students
Recognition Day is one of the finest days in students life, in fact, it is second to graduation day. To be recognized requires excellence and success. Excelling or succeeding at something and to be acknowledged for a well accomplished job are two of the most inspiring and memorable event for one to experience. This is one way of motivating our students to succeed or excel in their studies.
Two significant events
On 26 – 30 March 2012, the School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) of the Marinduque State College (MSC) in the Philippines celebrates three events, two of which are first in the life of the School since its founding many years ago. These two events, “1st Parade of Floats” preceded the “1st Recognition Day” of the School. For the whole week, there are a lot of students’ culminating activities like film showing, presentation of student’s proposed research, and other academic related activities. The week will be capped by the launching ceremony of the “Institutionalization of MSC Film Festival” which will be undertaken as a regular activity of the School in the coming years. Spearheading these activities is no other than the School Dean, Dr. Julieta L. Go.
The “Parade of Floats” is composed of 10 floats prepared by the 264 students of the School. This is a showcase of their creativity and ingenuity as students of the Bachelor of Arts degree major in English and Communication Arts. Thus, it is just a fitting tribute to have a ceremony like this to give awards in recognition of their significant accomplishments in academic and related activities. In opening the celebration, Dr. Go remarked that recognition ceremonies have been an integral part of managerial activities, not only in academic institutions like MSC but in almost all man-ran institutions.
SAS as a family
“Families as a primary social institution, also have their own way of recognizing the achievement of a member, or members of their family”. Their celebration, Dr. Go further added, brings together the family to recognize and appreciate an achievement of their family. In this recognition, it is the SAS Family, she averred emphatically in her opening remarks.
“Awards are given to the outstanding achievers in a particular field. An award is something given to a person or a group of person to recognize their excellence in the discipline. Awards are often signified by trophies, titles, commemorative plagues, medals, pins or ribbons”.
Today’s recognition ceremony is topped by the achievement of one of the AB English graduates of MSC, Miss Jeane M. Osacdin batch 2011. We are recognizing her today for topping the 8th place in the examination given by National Police Commission of the Philippines. Miss Osacdin is among the 21,927 examinees who took the PNP entrance examination on 23 October 2011.
The SAS Achievers
The Dean further extolled the students particularly those who excel in their studies and other academic activities. She said “as you receive this certificate, you should know by this time, that the School appreciates your hard work, that you have shown your best, thus you are entitled to receive this Award”.
