CSC honors Ruben T. Quintal Jr., May 2005 CE Board Exam Topnotcher

For topping the May 2005 Civil Engineer Licensure Examination with an outstanding rating of 98.25%, an honor befitting a national achiever was accorded to Ruben Tabuzo Quintal Jr. by the Catanduanes State Colleges (CSC) administrative and academic officials, faculty, staff and students.

A torch parade was held last May 18, 2005 around downtown Virac by the CSC community, led by its president, Dr. Asuncion V. Asetre, proclaiming the latest feat achieved by Quintal who also made waves last year as the penultimate champion in two prestigious national civil engineering quiz competitions.

Ruben’s parents, Mr. Ruben Quintal Sr. and Mrs. Berly Tabuzo Quintal, joined the torch parade, and eliciting cheers from the crowd for their son’s consistent academic achievement. The torch parade was also participated in by Ruben’s peers in the Alpha Phi Omega Fraternity and Sorority. A bonfire ceremony, highlighted by the messages of Dr. Asuncion V. Astre and the parents of Ruben, capped the torch parade.
