ANGELES CITY- Vice Mayor Bryan Matthew Nepomuceno and Councilor Edgardo Pamintuan Jr. together with school administrators and students of the City College of Angeles (CCA) led this institution’s 7th founding anniversary held Tuesday in Barangay Pampang.
Themed “Siyete Sitenta: Kapagmasusyan ning Pamagpasalamat”, the occasion highlights the accomplishments of the educational institution and its students, and the inspiration instilled by Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan to achieve excellence.
In his welcome remarks, CCA President Dr. Richard Daenos reiterated CCA’s solemn pledge to the Angeleños of providing free and quality tertiary-level education especially to the less fortunate yet truly deserving students.
The 3-day anniversary celebration is marked by various academic, cultural and sports competition all geared to serve as platforms for CCA students to showcase their talents and skills, and to strengthen their sense of sportsmanship and camaraderie.
In just a span of seven years, the school has produced three batches of graduates and has welcomed more than 2,000 students this academic year. CCA is also a proud recipient of numerous awards, recognitions and accreditations bestowed by higher educational institutions and international organizations.
To date, CCA gets a candidate accreditation status from the the Association of Local Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (ALCUCOA). CCA is also an International Center of Excellence for Events Management and Center of Excellence in Library Information Science, Physical Education and Technical Teacher Education given by the Asia Pacific Institute for Events Management, to name a few.
Meanwhile, Vice Mayor Nepomuceno congratulated everyone for making CCA a top-notch educational institution considering it is the youngest community college in Central Luzon. He added that the establishment of the city college is the best decision the city government have ever made as it strongly manifests its stern commitment of delivering quality education to young Angeleños.
“Contentment is not something that should be in for the City College of Angeles rather the challenge now is to take it to the next level. Much has been done but much is still needed to accomplish for our very own city college. The best is yet to come for our students who wish to breakaway from the shackles of poverty,” said Nepomuceno.
For his part, Mayor Pamintuan also extended his congratulations to the school administration and teaching force for materializing his promise to the Angeleños.
“May the beginnings and accolades gained by this institution inspire all of us to strive more for the betterment of our students. CCA will always have a big place in my heart,” said Pamintuan as he considers CCA as his administration’s greatest achievement enshrined in his 8-point platform of governance dubbed “Contract with the Angeleños”.
