The second day of the week-long celebration of PSU’s 43rd Founding Anniversary featured the Literary Festival that depicted the relevance of literature in society.

Literature serves as a bridge among cultures and generations as well as a tool for developing information and knowledge.

Thus, the Literary Festival included various competitions including extemporaneous speech, spoken poetry, spelling bee, and quiz bee that tested the sharpness and competence of the students and employees from the nine campuses of PSU.

Dr. Ruby F. Amado, the chair of the Literary Festival, welcomed and acknowledged the participants present at the Dr. Telesforo N. Boquiren Convention Hall.

“Today the four events will show off the “kahusayan”which is excellence and “katapatan”, the integrity of the PSUnians and goodness of our hearts. This is showing off what we can offer to our inang bayan and to the world as well,” Dr. Amado stated.

The panel of judges for the event included: Dr. Joyce Ann H. Canilang, a teacher III at Dulag Nationa High School in Binmaley; Ms. Jolina Gamboa, a Licensed Professional Teacher and a faculty member of the University of Pangasinan (PHINMA); and the chairperson, Mr. Kier L. Collado an SCL Coordinator also of the University of Pangasinan (PHINMA).

The overall chair for the 43rd Founding Anniversary Dr. Ian D. Evangelista gave his insights on the event.

“Bakit natin pinapahalagahan yung core values ng PSU? Sapagkat dito dapat umaangkla yung mga ginagawa natin sa araw araw. Kapag empleyado ka ng PSU kailangan ganito ang taglay mong ugali at higit kung mag-aaral ka ng PSU dapat ito ang taglay mong ugali”, Dr. Evangelista instilled.

Showing full support for the activity, University President Dr. Dexter R. Buted gave his inspirational message
“Ipakita natin sa buong Pangasinan na hindi nila-“lang” ang PSU, kundi, ang PSU ang tunay na nangunguna na pinakamagaling na higher educational institution sa buong probinsya,” Dr. Buted emphasized.

The whole gathering brimmed with mixed emotions as the students and employees delivered their literary pieces. Others were thrilled to answer the questions as the spelling bee and quiz bee began.

Adding delight to the activity, Dr. Buted distributed Ice cream for all, quenching the thirst of the participants, as well as providing livelihood to the ice cream vendors in the

Enjoyment was visible on every face of the audience.

Without a doubt, Pangasinan State University is really a home of growth and development, where both the students and employees may enhance their potential and wholeness as individuals.
