NCBS’ Nursing Nature Project Recognized Nationwide

By Mervyn Tan, Ginyn Noble and Martin Musones

The Nursing Central Board of Students (NCBS) was recognized as one of the top twenty organizations in the National Finals of the 8th Search for the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO 8) last December 9, 2010 in the Heroes Hall of the Malacañang Palace.

The twenty finalists were comprised of the five representatives each coming from the National Capital Region, Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and they were chosen out of 178 organizations all throughout the Philippines.
“The screening process was really thorough because, apart from the paper works that we’ve submitted, they also paid us a visit for an on-site screening,” said NCBS Vice President Nielson Dane Gustilo.

Their entry for TAYO 8 was Nursing Nature, an NCBS project aimed to raise nature advocacy and awareness in the college, and eventually, in the university.

“We chose Nursing Nature as our entry because we believe that it is the best project to represent the NCBS and it really is an honor to be recognized nationwide.” said NCBS President Royce Jasper Ong.

“We are really proud. This is not only the success of this year’s council but also the success of the previous council members as well since this project has started with previous years’ councils,” said NCBS Adviser Mr. Gian Carlo Torres, RN, MAN.

Although they were not included in the top 10, they didn’t feel sad or disappointed. “For the past 5 days, it did not feel like it was a competition. Being able to reach the Top 20 in the whole Philippines already made us feel like winners so even if the other 10 organizations weren’t chosen to be in the top 10, we were still happy,” said Gustilo.

It was indeed a day of honor and celebration as NCBS Vice President Nielson Dane Gustilo was chosen to give the privilege speech in behalf of all the finalists of the said competition.

Congratulations NCBS! May you continue to bring honor and inspiration to our college and to our university!
