Armand Henzkel Canoy is the latest achiever among Visayan Electric Company’s (VECO) over 200 scholars. The young man, who graduated summa cum laude from Cebu Institute of Technology-University (CIT-U), recently topped the country’s board exams for civil engineering.
Within two days of the board results, Armand already received around 10 job offers from both local and international companies. He has set his sights on being a teacher someday but, for now, wants to experience real work in the industry.
At school, Armand was honored as both ‘Mathematician of the Year’ and ‘King of Engineers’ for having the highest GWA (general weighted average) in the entire engineering campus. All throughout college, he was a presidential scholar, the highest rank on the dean’s list, and on graduation day, he was named Presidential Awardee for Academic Excellence.
“Faith without action is dead,â€ so quotes Armand from the Bible.“I’m very thankful to VECO because I finished school well-supported. They didn’t just provide financial support but also helped me in my entire schooling. They’re really different.â€
