Hua Siong College of Iloilo’s (HSCI) alumni Paolo Martin T. Abcede and Nanzrine K. Balsamo, and learners Calica Beatriz F. Wong and Iana Angela B. Sotaridona received the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines Youth Leadership Excellence Award (YLEA) last August 26, 2023 at Robinsons Place Jaro, Iloilo City for their exemplary performance in both academics and extracurricular activities.

Ninety-five elementary and secondary school learners from different private and public schools in the city and province of Iloilo were the recipients of the YLEA during their grand awarding ceremony. Twenty-five of them were selected by JCI Regatta.

“I felt very accomplished. To think that all my hard work was not only recognized but also rewarded,” said Balsamo, former high school student council president and alumnus of HSCI Ledesco Campus.

Wong, a Grade 7 learner of the same campus and also a recipient of the award shared that receiving the said award was a happy and exciting time for her.

“To be honest, I did not expect to receive this award. I am honored to be recognized

as a great leader with an accomplishment that carried immense significance to those around me, my team, and the organization as a whole,” added Paolo Martin Abcede, former student council president and alumnus of HSCI Main Campus.

JCI sub-chapters JCI Iloilo, JCI Iloilo Ilang-Ilang, JCI Regatta and JCI Metro Iloilo Dinagyang collaborated in presenting this year’s YLEA recipients.

YLEA is an annual recognition and conferment of certificates and medals to outstanding learners with scholarly achievements and active extracurricular involvement.
