The 20-year-old BSED student from Baler lead this year’s batch of graduates as ASCOT’s first Magna Cum Laude.
Born to a poor family in Baler, Paul Alvin had to help his mother in selling fish at a young age in order to earn few pesos for their daily allowance. In his remarks during the Commencement Exercises, he mentioned that he entered college with no assurance but full of hopes and aspirations. He managed to make use of his life’s challenges as motivation not just to succeed but to be always on top. Fortunately, Paul Alvin managed to be chosen as one of the beneficiaries of the Doña Juana J. Angara Foundation scholarship program.
Facelo was a testament that with faith and hard Work, nothing is impossible and there is no such thing as a dream that’s too big.
He now prepares for the October Licensure Examination for Teachers to be a Professional Teacher.
The honor roll for Batch 2013 includes 18 Cum Laude and 4 With Honors.
