ASSCAT Celebrates National Teachers Month and 31st CTE Founding Anniversary: Honoring the Torchbearers of Education

In the spirit of National Teachers Month, the Agusan del Sur State College of Agriculture and Technology (ASSCAT) recently paid tribute to the backbone of our educational system – the instructors, professors, and teachers who tirelessly mold the future minds of our nation. This celebration was particularly special for the College of Teacher Education (CTE) as they marked their 31st CTE Founding Anniversary on September 7th and 8th, 2023.

The CTE Day festivities served as a testament to the commitment of educators and the vital role they play in society. Over the course of two days, the CTE organized a series of engaging activities that not only showcased their dedication but also fostered a sense of community and camaraderie.

One of the standout events during the celebration was the Outreach Program in partnership with ASSCAT Alumni, where CTE faculty, staff, and students extended their hands and hearts to the community. This initiative not only demonstrated their commitment to education but also their dedication to the betterment of society as a whole.

The Literary and Sports Events were a highlight of the celebration, emphasizing the importance of a well-rounded education. These events encouraged students to explore their talents beyond the classroom, promoting physical fitness and artistic expression.

A poignant moment during the celebration was the pinning ceremony for the Bachelor of Elementary Education (BEED) Program. This symbolized the passing of knowledge and the official induction of aspiring educators into the world of teaching, further reinforcing the College’s commitment to nurturing future educators.

As a nod to their rich history and the profound impact they’ve had on the education landscape, CTE also took the opportunity to honor outstanding alumni of ASSCAT who have made significant contributions to the field of education. Recognizing their achievements served as an inspiration to current students and a reminder of the enduring legacy that the College continues to build.

The CTE Day celebration brought together a diverse group of individuals – the dedicated CTE faculty and staff, College Dean Dr. Shiryl T. Ytoc, and College President Dr. Joy C. Capistrano, along with current students and proud alumni. This gathering served as a testament to the enduring spirit of ASSCAT, where education is not merely a profession but a passion that unites generations in the pursuit of knowledge and enlightenment.

In a world where the importance of education cannot be overstated, the Agusan del Sur State College of Agriculture and Technology’s celebration of National Teachers Month and CTE Day stands as a shining example of the dedication and commitment of educators to empower future generations. It is a time to honor the past, celebrate the present, and look forward to a brighter future, guided by the unwavering commitment to education at the Agusan del Sur State College of Agriculture and Technology.
