ANGELES CITY- Students of City College of Angeles (CCA) taking up Accounting Technology won in various categories during the National Mid-Year Competition of Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants held recently in Plaza del Norte, Ilocos Norte.
CCA bested all schools, both public and private, offering accountancy programs in the Philippines, and emerged as champion under the General Information Quiz Bee. The group is comprised of John Cyril Rivera, Christopher Mendoza and Cris John Baquing.
On the other hand, Corlil Mae Meneses, Jonnie Dale Regala and Nixon Kevin Manalo won second runner up under the Tax Case Study competition.
A total of 12 regions competed in the said national mid-year competition.
According to CCA President Dr. Richard Daenos, unlike other participating regions and delegation to the competition which include a mixture of accountancy students from various schools, the group sent by Central Luzon are students all coming from CCA.
Aside from the CCA, four (4) institutions also emerged as top contenders of the competition which include De La Salle University, University of the Philippines, University of San Carlos, and St. Louis University.
“Our students from CCA have been reaping awards and winning competitions left and right for the past months. These accolades are testaments to our vow of providing quality education to every Angeleño youth,” said Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan.
“We salute all our students and our teacher-coaches who have painstakingly devoted their time to win the competition. May our students continue this winning streak for the greater glory of God and for the city,” Pamintuan added.
The NFJPIA was created in 1983 under the auspices of the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants to serve as a link between the accountancy students and their professional counterparts.
Being the only national organization of accountancy students, it is tasked with organizing its members into a relevant sector of the business community.
Meanwhile, a resolution congratulating the CCA delegates is set to be handed over by the 17th Sangguniang Panlungsod sponsored by Councilor Amos Rivera.
