After a series of self-introduction, talent portion, and interview, John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University-Arevalo sashed Midshipmen Laurence Andrew Catanzaro, Alfred James Espinosa and Jaypee Peruelo as Unit Model Cadets 2016 at the JBL Hall.
“Unit Model Cadet Selection was an initiative of our President Emeritus Mary Lou Arcelo which scouts for exemplary cadets who will become competent marine officers in the future,” mentioned Engr. Roberto Neal S. Sobrejuanite, school Administrator.
To also give recognition, Unit Model Cadets 2016 finalists were escorted by their parents upon marching their way to the stage.
“I didn’t actually expect to win this selection. I was overwhelmed since it was my first time to join this activity,” explained Mdpn. Catanzaro.
This year’s theme is “JBLFMU-A: Sailing with Excellence through Leadership and Empowerment”
