An AASA Scholar is East Asian Champion of Schneider Electric Competition
Lorenz Ray Payonga (5 BS Electronics and Communications Engineering), an AASA scholar, together with Alyssa Tricia Vintola (5 BS Electronics and Communications Engineering) won the East Asian Regional Competition of Schneider Electric’s “Go Green in the City” contest. Go Green in the City 2013 is an international case challenge for university business and engineering students around the region to find clever solutions for energy management. Their entry, "Oscillohump", is an energy solution concept which aims to generate electricity from road humps. It was chosen from over 14 entries from Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam after a meticulous screening process. They were also previously declared the Philippine champion after besting over 30 other teams from various universities in Metro Manila on the merits of design and creativity, innovative thinking, feasibility, cost effectiveness, energy efficiency, and social impact. Their mentor is Dr. Erees Queen "Reese" B. Macabebe of the Department of Electronics, Computer, and Communications Engineering (ECCE).
Enzo and Alyssa will now move on to represent the country in the final round of “Go Green in the City International Case Challenge” in Paris, France this June 2013.
Milestone: 100 AASA Scholars
Since its inception in 1987, the Ateneo Alumni Scholars Association has been able to help 100 scholars graduate with an Ateneo education. We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their unceasing support in making this milestone possible – your heartfelt efforts have truly changed lives!
AASA aims to continue this tradition of generosity through supporting more and more scholars as well as setting up an endowment fund annually, such as the AASA-Fr. Nemesio S. Que, S.J. Endowment Fund which was established this March. Through the collective efforts of alumni scholars consistently contributing to the program, we are now able to support an increasing number of scholars – from 22 scholars in 2010, this has grown to 23 in 2011, 30 in 2012, and hopefully this number will reach 34 this 2013.
Indeed, we give our deepest thanks for your selfless giving that has enabled deserving youth to be one step closer to your dreams.
