From Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, over 20,000 students from various STI campuses, academic personnel, officers, employees, and special guests gathered last September 26, 2014 at Enchanted Kingdom in Sta. Rosa, Laguna to celebrate the institution’s 31st year.
“Be the hero. Be STI!” is this year’s call to action as STI challenges the whole community to be the hero they can be by encouraging them to thrive to reach their dreams, honor their work, and to become responsible members of society. STI also honors its alumni as model heroes who paved the way to achieve their personal triumphs in life, and continue to empower others to be heroes in their own rights—heroes who are ready to take action and enact positive change.
STI’s 31st anniversary will kick off a grand year-long celebration with the annually anticipated showcase of talents and wit and exciting fun-filled activities. Promoting the prowess of STIers, the event staged the finest talents in different fields emerging from all over the country. Gifted singers sang in the Singing Idol competition, while young master musicians grouped together to contend in Battle of the Bands. Agile dancers stomped to the beat in Hataw Sayaw, and the brightest, most charming STI personalities competed for the titles of Mr. & Ms. STI 2014. Following this occasion, there will be more events in the following months that are focused in academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities such as the STI National Youth Convention (STI NYC) to provide vitals lessons outside their classrooms, and the Tagisan ng Talino and Tagisan ng Sining competitions to showcase the aptitude of STI’s most skilled students.
“In this event, STI does not only honor the heroic feats STIers have done in the past, but we also aim to motivate the students to be heroes in their own rights. Successful alumni from different batches help us inspire our current students to be the best that they can be. Likewise, this event is more than just a traditional celebration of our anniversary; we aim to advocate the well-rounded development of young individuals. More importantly, we’ve ensured that these activities instil the necessary positive values as part of our learning systems,” says STI’s President Monico V. Jacob in a statement.
STI celebrates its foundation day every year in a joyous event where members of the STI community participate in the showcase of talents and skills in different fields. In this festive gathering, STI proudly upholds the achievements of its students who were trained and nurtured with the holistic education the institution provides as it continues to realize its thrust towards excellence and real life education.
