As a way of honoring teachers and employees who continue to inspire students with their knowledge, skills and commitment, ISAT U marked World Teacher’s Day last Oct. 5 with a Tribute to Teachers and Employees at the ISAT U Covered Gym.
With the theme “Empowering Teachers, Building Sustainable Societies,” the celebration opened with a thanksgiving mass in honor of the teachers and employees.
This was followed by the program proper which started with a welcome address from Ms. Losette A. Dela, President of the Student Republic.
Speaking on behalf of the Student Republic, Ms. Dela expressed her never-ending gratitude to the teachers and employees who became sources of wisdom and knowledge with the years spent in the institution.
Dr. Raul F. Muyong also paid tribute to the teachers by giving an inspiring message.
“Teachers are tasked to shape humanity,” Dr. Muyong said in one of his statements. The university president enumerated the contributions of a teacher to society.
“A man is formed and honed by his teacher. The best gift to be given among teachers is for them to be good and to attend their classes all the time.” He also challenged the teachers to provide quality education to ISAT U students.
The event also showcased a solidarity dance performed by SR officers and presentation of students from the different colleges as tribute to the teachers and employees.
