The Department of Science & Technology here in Negros Oriental conducted an exit conference for their Science Education Institute graduating scholars, with the theme Renewing S&T Scholars Commitment to the Filipino People in the New Normal.

The conference aimed to re-engage the 134 graduating students with their commitments of the terms and conditions stipulated in the scholarship agreement.

“It is easy to spot opportunities when you are always looking for them. May you continue to nurture your skills and capabilities even after you have completed your college degrees. And always remember, to whom much is given, much is expected,”said Atty. Gilbert Arbon, provincial S&T Director of DOST Negros Oriental.

Marjorie Solon, Scholarship coordinator for the Province, re-oriented the scholars on the terms and conditions of the scholarship agreement, specifically on their service obligation. Elvira Solana, Regional Scholarship coordinator also presented various graduate scholarship programs, and encouraged them to apply for their master’s degrees.

Dr. Nilita Ragay, chief for Curriculum Implementation in the Department of Education Negros Oriental Division, presented the role of the Education department in the implementation of the RA 10612 and its hiring process.

DOST also conducted a career talk and Q&A with three outstanding DOST-SEI scholar-alumni who shared their best practices and experiences.

Another agenda was the conception of project ideas for the Patriot Project of DOST scholars in Negros Oriental. The presidents of the three Scholars’ Associations in Negros Oriental presented their project proposals to DOST.

DOST NegOr also recognized all outstanding graduating scholars who received certificates of recognition for their exemplary academic performance.

“From the recently-concluded DOST exit conference, I was reminded that being a scholar is both a privilege and a responsibility…because not all can pass the selection process and not all have the capability to maintain the attached responsibilities,” said Diamay Balacuit who finished BSED Sciences at Silliman University.

“I believe the DOST scholars can become scientists, engineers, mathematicians, teachers, or leaders of our nation someday. In our capabilities, we will make sure that we will stride down the right path in our careers, and meet the demands of global competitiveness,” said Brenromel Torres, who took up BS Mathematics at Negros Oriental State University. “We will serve by working and dispensing our knowledge to spur inclusive growth in the Philippines and improve our qualifications in critical STI disciplines.” (Engr.
