ANGELES CITY – The City College of Angeles (CCA) has continuously proven its commitment to excellence through its students who have won in various regional academic competitions in the onset of the year.
CCA President Dr. Richard Daenos said that “the achievements of the students are fruits of the college’s pledge to provide the young Angeleños with affordable and quality tertiary education they deserve”.
The students from the college’s Institute of Computing Studies and Library Information Science (ICSLIS) bagged the Best Poster Paper during the 4th SPCF Regional ICT Research Colloquium themed “ICT Education Research towards Innovation and Collaboration”.
The delegation comprised of Aizel Abuan, Arturo Bambao III, Ian Joshua Parpan, Mary Joyce Timbol, and John David Puri were awarded in the said contest with their entry, “Android Application Traveller Assistant for On-Route PUJ in Angeles City”.
The tourism students of the CCA also won big time in the recently concluded Tourism Inter-School Quiz Bee and Video Competition held at Angeles University Foundation.
Under the Quiz Bee event, the group, which included Catherine Bognot, Nicole Agarrado, and Regine Limpin Serona, emerged as the champion beating other four higher learning institutions in the region.
On the other hand, CCA ranked 2nd place for the Video Competition. The group is comprised of Jestoni Manaloto, Dayanara Hernandez, and Cherry Miles.
“Our consistent winning streak in various academic competitions not only regional but even in the national level confirms that the CCA is truly an institution for higher learning and excellence,” said Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan.
“We dedicate these accolades to the people of the city especially those who believe that by putting up a city college, we will be able to provide our youth with opportunities to obtain higher education, to improve their lives and of their families, and to become potential leaders of the future,” Pamintuan added.
