As the academic year nearly concludes, outstanding faculty, students, and organizations were recognized at the Council of Student Organization’s (CSO) 42nd Lasallian Excellence Awards (LEA) held last August 4 at the 18th floor Natividad Fajardo-Rosario Auditorium of the Br. Andrew Gonzalez Hall. With the theme “Kaleidoscope: Leadership in Different Colors and Perspectives”, LEA depicts various types of student leaders who have expressed “great initiative for development and change in various fields inside and outside of the University.”
LEA is an annual event that “represents a long-lasting legacy of excellence passed down through generations of Lasallian leaders throughout the history of the University.” It serves as a celebration of bona fide services from both individuals and organizations, guided by the “embodying principles of faith, service, and communion.”
According to Events Assistant Director Ricah De Guzman, it is important to acknowledge members of the DLSU community. She expresses, “By doing so, we honor the efforts they (awardees) put into service to provide an opportunity for students to develop their leadership skills and explore their capacity as a Lasallian leader.”
Award Giving Bodies
Winners were assessed and selected by the Award Giving Bodies (AGB) that aim to search and grant recognition to educators, students, and organizations who “exemplify hard work and excellence for God and country, showcasing to the Lasallian community the fruits of their labor.”
The AGB consists of three essential award components: Harvest of Winners (HOW), The Outstanding Coeds, The Outstanding Young Men (TOC-TOYM), and the Students’ Search for Outstanding Teachers (SSOT).
The DLSU Economics Organization bagged the Outstanding Professional Organization Award, while Dether Marco Marinda won first place in The Outstanding Coeds, The Outstanding Young Men category. Finally, Ms. Maria Corazon Colendrino won the grand prize in the Students’ Search for Outstanding Teachers.
