PATTS College of Aeronautics has more stories to tell about successes and victories ever since 1969. Reminiscing the events that happened on March 5, 2022, watching the metaphorical golden wings of every Aeronautical and Industrial Engineering Board Passers of 2021, has been the paradigm of the late Engr. and Atty. Ambrosio Valdez Sr.’s commitment on why he established the institution in the first place— providing quality education, training, and experiences to the PATTS community.
Now, to celebrate the countless trophies acquired in the last five decades, it is more than just right to celebrate the “Testimonial High Tea” to commemorate the hard work of the esteemed Seahorses that brought pride to the institution.
Signaling another historical event was determined by the presence of the ever-inspiring Madame Ma. Felisa Valdez (Vice Chair and Chief Finance Officer), Engr. Jose Eduardo S. Valdez (College President and COO), and the Board Trustees: Dr. Ambrosio Emilio Valdez III, Mr. Ramon Dumlao Jr., Dr. Ana Mercedes Gatmaytan, Atty. Anna Katrina Cruz, Ms. Jennifer Charlotte Orola, and Ms. Ma. Rosa Josefina D. Fresnido. Also present was the special guest, Mr. Greg Fresnido.
“You will serve as an inspiration to the future Aeronautical and Industrial Engineering students,” Engr. Joy Cosme Amores Jr. said in his boosting opening remarks. An impactful phrase that goes across the screens to those watching via Zoom and to those present in the event.
Among the products and pride of the institution was Engr. Allain Chris Mojica, who delivered his inspirational message where every word he spoke equates his pride to being part of the PATTSean legacy. He wholeheartedly told his journey of how he graduated, passed the board exam, and how he continues on creating history on becoming an Associate ASEAN Engineer, and a proud alumnus of PATTS.
It is here, and it is time. Atty. Cruz initiated the presentation of new engineers, henceforth, called the board passers up-front to be truly recognized. Their pursuit, along with other seahorses that came before, has continued to prove the institution’s urge to excellence shown by PATTS’ production of world-class engineers, especially to Engr. Edward Lewis Ramos (AERO 4th Placer), Engr. Paul Daniel Gabato (AERO 5th Pacer), Engr. Deomary Angelo Franco (AERO 7th Placer), and Engr. Jameson Louis Del Rio ( IE 9th Placer).
Everyone holding their wine glass, ready to hear the satisfying clanging sound of success–this is it, the much-awaited toast commenced that was led by Engr. Valdez. Their golden wings have been sentimental as seen by him, as they were once young Seahorses whose potentials were yet to be harnessed. Cheers! — It is that word that filled the lobby with laughter and greetings–seen prevalent in the grins on their face, indeed a wonderful sight.
“Life is not always rainbows and butterflies, you need to be prepared for what's more to come,” emotional statements that gushed through the valedictorian speech of Engr. Del Rio. Struggles that have been conquered are something that everyone should be proud of as what he emphasized.
On the same note, Engr. Ramos also gave a speech that mirrored his confidence and wisdom. He maneuvered his statements by personifying things such as aircraft materials, to name a few, saying: “We display what we are made of,” saying that we can be resilient, tough, and brittle during difficult times.
Grooves and melodies also moved the ambiance by virtual performances by the PATTS Vocal Harmony (PVH) and PATTS Dance Company (PDC), and the warmest greetings and congratulatory messages from the PATTS Academic Community also happened during the duration of the event.
Continuous success is what the institution is known for. Besides, PATTS College of Aeronautics has been the best Aeronautical College of all time. Its Aeronautical Engineering Program is the only program recognized by the country at any accrediting educational agency to attain Level III status as certified by the Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines (FAAP). The Industrial Engineering Program also took PACUCOA accreditation focusing on certain factors, moving a step forward as well.
