On April 5, 2016, Jover Lingo, TMI's first scholar graduate marched proudly and took center stage amidst applause as he received his degree, Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management. It's a fitting culmination after 4 years of hard-work, sweat,tears, as well as good college fun. The ceremony was held at the Surigao Stae College of Technology grounds in Magpayang, Mainit, Surigao del Norte. Our first graduate was beaming as his graduation was witnessed by his equally proud family and TMI reperesentative, TMI Secretary, Leticia Mosende.
On his graduation day, he wrote, "Today marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life. Thank you TMI family. Because of your help, I graduated.... You gave me an opportunity to achieve my dreams".
He was particularly grateful to his main sponsor/benefacror, TMIer Edgardo and Eva Reyes of Mesquite, Texas, USA. You have always been very supportive and you have considered me a part of your family, he continued.
Shortly after graduation, Jover started working at Kasili Lakeside Resort in Mainit to gain more experience as he looks forward to more exciting work opportunities in his future. TMI vows to continue to assist him in his endeavors as a young professional.
