Studes sustain excellence, ensure success
Surpassing boundaries, achieving excellence and attaining success is what every achiever’s aspiration is all about.
The Mountain Province State Polytechnic College proudly presented its academic and non-academic achievers as it marked another milestone in excellence in the recently conducted 24th Recognition Day held at the College Auditorium on March 14, 2016.

Dr. Christie Lynne C. Codod, Executive Dean of Bontoc Campus, shared the message behind every letter of the word ACHIEVEMENT and imparted to audiencethat the achievement, commendation, ideals, efficiency, value, equality, manifest, encouragement, nobility and talent that we have are what make us the achievers we are today. “I congratulate the students and their parents as they are about to receive the fruits of their labor,” Dean Codod ended in her opening speech.
Quoting that the students are the main reason for the existence of MPSPC, the College President, Dr. Rexton F. Chakas, applauded the students, parents and acknowledged the faculty who gave their utmost in teaching and inspiring the students in achieving their goals. In President Chakas’ speech, he pointed, “When health is absent, wisdom cannot reveal itself, art cannot be manifested, strength cannot be exerted, wealth becomes useless and reason is powerless.” President Chakas revealed that nobody is successful in all facets of life and concluded that the most important skill to learn to achieve success is keeping all things in life in a healthy balance.
Mr. Nestor A. Morareng, Sagada District Supervisor and a proud graduate of MPSPC, the guest speaker, inspired all in achieving their purposes in life despite all the difficulties and hindrances that will come. He stated that nothing can stop us from achieving success, but if we fail, we still have another chance and chances are only given to those who are willing to embrace it. He reminded the students to never forget to give gratitude to their teachers who guided and moulded them to the successful persons they are today. Lastly, he commended the college for having a quality education and for producing many successful professionals.
