Acoba, Aguinaldo Win 2011 Scholastic Championship Awards

Lawren Vince Acoba and Janine Jessica Aguinaldo, valedictorian and salutatorian respectively, of the Bangui National High School-Main Campus, bested their counterparts from the Banban Campus and Lanao Campus in a combined Math and Science written test proctored yesterday by Nenita P. Arucan.

Acoba and Aguinaldo will be awarded the Valedictorian Academic Medal and the Salutatorian Academic Medal, respectively. Both will receive 10,750 pesos each. The cash awards were donated in the name of the late Felix P. Soriano by relatives led by sister Emily Soriano-Padua and nieces Pureza Alupay Capriles and Eden Soriano Caletena who now reside in the United States.

The scholastic championship medals and cash (please check immediately preceding post) will be awarded to this year’s scholastic champions by Ruben Alupay and Noriel Soriano, both nephews of the late Felix P. Soriano, himself an alumnus of the then Bangui Provincial High School, at the graduation ceremonies of the Bangui National High School-Main Campus.

This is the second year in a row that the graduating valedictorian and salutatorian of the Bangui National High School-Main Campus won the scholastic championship awards.

Bangui National Hi (Poblacion) Honor Students Win Scholastic Champion Awards

Based on a written test covering math and science given to the valedictorian and salutatorian graduates of the three campuses of the Bangui National High School, those coming from the Poblacion Campus were adjudged the winners of the 2010 Scholastic Champion Awards.  Mariann Jane Gan and Philip Victor Garen Garvida, valedictorian and salutatorian respectively, from the Poblacion Campus bested their counterparts from the Banban Campus and the Lanao Campus in the written test given to them on Saturday, April 9, 2010, with Nenita P. Arucan and Noraini Arucan acting as proctors.

An award ceremony in conjunction with the 2010 Bangui National Hi Alumni Reunion Farewell Dance will be held on May 2, 2010.  Jane Soriano, widow of the late Felix P. Soriano (both alumni of Bangui Hi), will present the awards to the two lucky winners.  The awards consist of a Valedictorian medal and a Salutatorian medal, Academic Excellence medallions, plus cash awards donated by Jane Soriano.

Under consideration is a plan to raise funds, perhaps a Certificate of Deposit or Trust Fund to continue the Bangui National Hi Scholastic Champion Awards as an annual tradition.  The first donor to the fund is Dr. Edison Cabacungan (from Sinait, Ilocos Sur), former Chair and Professor Emeritus of the Food Marketing & Agribusiness Management/Agricultural Education Department of California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.
