UM is victorious at Philippine Association of Campus Students and Advisers meet

The University of Mindanao’s Neil Anthony Jamili emerged as champion in the recently concluded extemporaneous speaking competition event of the Philippine Association of Campus Student Advisers held last November 25-29 at Baguio City.

Jamili, who studies Chemical Engineering, bested more than 104 participating schools and universities in the event, which gathered student leaders all across the country for trainings and competition.

It can be remembered also that Jamili topped last year’s National Invention Contest and Exhibits of the Department of Science and Technology for his biodegradable plastics from discarded sweet potatoes research.

Apart from the extemporaneous speaking contest, he and teammates Hzschechnee Jessamine Balolot and Almarie Deligero were runner-ups for their exhibit that focused on corporate social responsibility and UM researches.
