UB student qualifies TOSP national finals



Ladie Lyn G. Fuderan, a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Criminology in the University of Bohol, is more than a half way in her quest for the most prestigious Ten Outstanding Student of the Philippines (TOSP) award having been listed in the Search’s National Finalists.

Fuderanan, a TOSP awardee in Region VII, was chosen as one of the 30 finalists from among the 91 regional awardees and national nominees all over the country during the National Screening Assembly held last August 6, 2016 at RFM Corporate Center in Mandaluyong City. If bestowed the TOSP award this year, Fuderanan will be the second UBian who received the national accolade after Ann B. Crusit of the Teachers College in 2009.

Other university students who made it to the finals include TOSP national finalist Frederick B. Namoc, and regional finalists Marie Nickie H. Bolos, Lalaine Dajao, Gwendelyn Ayuban and Ed Vincent Cahulugan.

TOSP is founded by Mr. Jose S. Concepcion, Jr., then publisher of Student Life magazine. It was launched in June 19, 1961 as an awards program that honors outstanding students who have shown academic excellence, exemplary leadership, and deep sense of community involvement. Since then, the awards continue to inspire students to become responsible leaders of their respective communities and the country. (labboncales)
