“If you want it, work for it,” said Frances Noel Carvajal of CTU Danao, who clinched the 38th National Civil Engineering Student Quiz (NCESQ) with a championship trophy on November 19 in Baguio City.
Little did Carvajal know that his last year in the university would unfold a rather compelling moment such as acing the nationals while he suffered from fever.
In an interview, he spoke of how much he valued in the final round the presence of last year’s champion, CTU Main, which now held his previous position as first runner-up, as it pushed him to doing what he ultimately wanted to achieve.
The success could also be alluded to coach Dovann Arrabis, who in a way improved the campus’ performance a lot toward gaining championship title for the first time.
NCESQ is sponsored by The Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers, Inc. (PICE). Francis Anecito
