Liberal Arts programs from the College of Arts and Sciences stirred up this year’s CAS Month opening salvo despite the limited number of attendees at Cebu Technological University-Argao Campus’ Gymnasium, Wednesday, May 4, 2022.
With hope of a greener and unpolluted environment inside the campus, the celebration kicked off with a tree planting activity participated by the faculty and staff of the campus.
Dr. Ma. Cristilina A. Montañez, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, marked an inclusive bestowal of the newly-fashioned official CAS logo conceptualized by the CAS Lead Team: Dean and chairpersons and lay-out by Mr. Neil John Dael.
The logo interpretation was devised Ruth Anne Genegabuas, the Southern Ripples Publication editor-in-chief and Jhec Aldrei Canibel, a student extensionist and AB LIT student.
In spite of this year’s loaded schedule, the much awaited event for the celebration was the CASiglakas 2022, a battle of wit and beauty of the selected students under the department.
Jaymes Aldrich Daleon was hailed as Mr. CASiglakas 2022 and Jessa Mae Dingding won the award as Ms. CASiglakas 2022.
In a one-on-one interview, Ms. Dingding, the newly-crowned Ms. CASiglakas 2022, extended a message that amidst uncertainty, one must be determined and should continue to strive for learning as she believes that anyone can surpass against all odds and that one can redirect to a better version of oneself.
“… I know that we often see failure as an outcome of our tentative decisions and futile efforts. But beneath the surface, it acts as a trigger to our aspirations, and instead of self-blame, we should be practicing self-acceptance… I would impart the values I’ve learned about the importance of embracing our potential and making constant efforts to conquer our fear of failing to my fellow students in the College of Arts and Sciences Department. ” Mr. CASiglakas 2022, Jaymes Aldrich Daleon ended.-Aeron Mark C.
