“Intelligent, responsible, selfless”—No wonder Mambusao, Capiz’s own, Jerry Ian L. Leonida, was awarded as one of this year’s Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines conferred by the RFM Corporation recently.


Leonida was the class valedictorian of Burias Elementary School in his hometown, Mambusao, Capiz, and achieved the same feat at the University of the Philippines High School in Iloilo.


This year, he graduated magna cum laude from the University of the Philippines Visayas, obtaining Bachelor of Science in Fisheries.


Aside from his academic achievements in school, Leonida’s smarts were also recognized by the UP Aquaculture Society, Seachamp International Export Corporation, SEAFDEC-AQD, and M. Lhuiller Financial Services, Inc.


Despite the demands of his studies, Leonida manages to participate in extra-curricular activities.


As president of the UP Fisheries Guild (UPFG), a socio-academic, service and political organization of the College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, Leonida led his group to being recognized as the school’s Best Student Organization in Academic Year 2013–2014.


To help encourage more students to consider the fisheries profession, the UPFG facilitated the Rheotaxis + Fisheries Camp and led its Inter High School Quiz Show to be recognized as a regional event by the Department of Education (DepEd).


Leonida also engaged in social-responsibility activities. His project proposal to a paint company helped the local government unit (LGU) of Miagao, Iloilo implement Executive Order No. 305, which requires all registered fishing vessels to be colorcoded. This endeavor led to more projects from the said paint company for the said Iloilo town, including the repair of its municipal public market.


Leader Leonida also helped the Miagao government to establish a technical working group for establishing a marine protected area in town.


After Supertyphoon Yolanda, his group, UPFG solicited help from Sen. BamBam Aquino, who gave 15 sacks of rice; and Jingle Foundation, who gave 420 packs of relief goods, for one of the coastal barangays in Iloilo.


While others spent their Christmas break lazing around, Leonida helped in repacking, sorting, and distributing relief goods organized by Checkmyschool, which benefited the catechists of a local parish, more than 200 indigent families, and elementary and secondary students in his hometown Mambusao.


Putting his intellect and energy into good use, Leonida is indeed worthy of being distinguished as one of the 10 outstanding students of the Philippines.
