Celebrating 123rd Independence Day

Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) and security personnel raise the Philippine flag to honor the country’s 123 years of independence.

Despite the drizzle, CTU Main pushed the commemorative ceremony of the nation’s 123rd Independence Day themed “Kalayaan 2021: Diwa sa Pagkakaisa at Paghilom ng Bayan” on June 12th.

“We celebrate this history and commemorate the sacrifices made by our ancestors to nourish our sense of nationalism, more than remembering our freedom,” said CTU President Rosein Ancheta Jr.

On the same day, Commission on Higher Education Region 7 (CHEDRO 7) Director Maximo Aljibe presented a memorabilia to Dr. Ancheta, emphasizing their friendship and leadership through the years.

The Sentro ng Wika at Kultura facilitated the rites on Saturday attended by  university dignitaries and personnel. /Almie Mata/CTU Main
