Laboratorians donate smartphones to the needy students of CatSU


The Catanduanes State Colleges (now Catanduanes State University) Laboratory Schools (CSCLS) Batch ‘97, Singapore Chapter has donated smartphones to four deserving students from the College of Education and College of Agriculture and Fisheries.


Based on the recommendation of Deans from the 2 Colleges, four students were selected as beneficiaries: Nichico M. Canaria (CoED), Janine DL. Barro (CoED), Anthony Carl T. Pamplona (CAF), and Jake V. Tabirao (CAF).


The donation was made possible through the efforts of Dra. Jenevy Lizaso, a CSCLS Batch ‘99 alumna, who managed to get sponsors from Batch ’97.


The smartphones were handed over to the students last January 18, 2021 by the CatSU Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Maria S. Tugano together with the Deans of the College of Education and College of Agriculture and Fisheries, Dr. Rosana S. Abundo, and Dr. Epifanio S. Rubio respectively, and some faculty members.


A beneficiary, Jake V. Tabirao, 2nd year BS Agriculture student, said he is so grateful for the donation, as it will help him with the modules currently sent thru online modes, which previously he can do only after borrowing a phone from a friend thus, resulting to late submission of required outputs.


The University, on its part, extends its sincere appreciation to the sponsors who donated the devices which will definitely serve a bigger purpose – to help ease the burden faced by some students during these trying times brought about by the pandemic and super typhoon Rolly. #JManlagnit
