Kabayan Ten Outstanding Public School Students (TOPS) Speech

I and the former Philippines's Vice President Nolie "Kabayan" de Castro
I cannot put into words the happiness and fulfillment I felt, upon knowing that, through this scholarship program of Kabayan Noli de Castro, I can fulfill my dreams.

This would not only give me a chance, to make my dreams come true, but also to give honor to my tribe in Bukidnon and to let them realize that there is still a bright future that awaits us. That there is still hope despite the “Cloudy every days” in our lives. That we may not die of hunger because many of us are uneducated.

Now is my privilege to say thank you first and foremost to our almighty Father for giving blessings to other people and using them as an instrument to help the less fortunate.

My gratitude and thanks to Kabayan Noli de Castro for his kindness and generosity. That through him, I have been unwrapped from the thought of hopelessness, knowing that the desire in fulfilling my dreams is in me.

My special thanks also to the SM Foundation Inc. for showing me the road as to where I should go. My indebtedness to Dr. Ingrid G. Racoma, our Schools Division Superintendent and my DepEd family tor understanding and seeing the real me.

Special thanks also to Sir Edwin O. Gurrea, our Supervisor for Araling Panlipunan in the Division of Bukidnon. To my foster parents who are always at my side in times of my needs—that they have stood by me as real parents should be. Thank you Uncle Carlos and Ma'am Fe Jubay.

To our principal, Mrs. Ivonne D. Catli and to our teachers who have molded me and have written in my mind and in my heart the things that they wanted me to be.

Our supportive congressman Joey Zubiri and the local government of Maramag, Bukidnon headed by Hon. Mayor Alicia P. Resus.

The endless support of Busco Sugar Milling Corporation Inc. headed by Mr. Roman Ozaeta Jr.

Now I consider myself as a tiny plant that was once planted and nurtured. I believe I will grow well for I am now watered and fertilized. Rest assured that in the future, my sponsors and the people who have helped me, will harvest a quality produce that might be a good commodity for not only once but for all.

Thank you very much!
