(by Jessica Marie B. Laturnas 1/19/2018)

In celebration of the 5th Uhay Festival and 17th Charter anniversary of SCM, PHilMech sponsored a Bohemian-themed Employees' Night to give recognition, awards and prizes to national and local government employees last January 12 at the PAG-ASA Gym. Joseph Victor Ejercito, senator and agriculture advocate, graced the night and gave his support for the continuous development of the city. He was also given a certification declaring him to be an adopted son of SCM. “The instant I saw your City Hall adorned with lights, I immediately thought ‘it’s so happy in here’. Christmas is already over, but here, it’s extended. Almost every night, groups of people are being brought to joy and given recognition by the Science City of Muñoz,” Ejercito lauded. The senator ended his message with a promise. “…I will never forget the way you welcomed and accepted me (as your guest speaker). Know that if there’s anything that I can do to help for the development and betterment of the service of Science City of Muñoz, I will do it for all of you.” Highlighting the night were the 2nd UHAY awards given to to outstanding SCM employees who brought honor and pride to the city. Awardees include Leide Mel Sicat (DOST), Freddie Tuquero (NIA UPRIIS Div I), Teodora Briones (PhilRice), Alonzo Lozano (NEFVSC), Lloyd Vergara (GM Bank), PO1 Cedrik Divina (PNP), Jona Dela Cruz (Muñoz Satellite TV System, Inc.), Hernando Venturina (PCC), Angelito Dela Cruz (LGU), and Procorpio Nacis (CLSU). From the outstanding performances of the PHilMech band, PHilMech Himig Anihan, PHilMech Indak Anihan, Gapan Fire Dancers, MNHS-Annex dancers and CLSU Gintong Ani Philippines (GAP) folk dancers to the announcement of raffle winners and “Best in Boho attire” awardees, the night was filled with fun, music, and prizes.
