A Political Science student of the College of Liberal Arts (CLA) will receive the highest recognition as class valedictorian of the Western Mindanao State University’s (WMSU) 70th Commencement Exercises.
Wilson Luna Lambiquit, who hails from Barangay San Jose, this city, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Salvador and Araceli Lambiquit.
A consistent honor student from elementary to high school, Lambiquit was also a recipient of the debate award, having been engaged in debate tilts locally and nationally and the most outstanding scholar award during the University Recognition Day last Thursday, March 26.
With a grade point average of 1.35, Lambiquit will lead the class of 2015 as a Magna Cum Laude, followed by another Magna Cum Laude from the College of Science and Mathematics, Laurice Aiken B. Tumanda of the Bachelor of Science in Biology program with a GPA of 1.384.

The 20-year-old Lambiquit added that it is in WMSU that he learned to be more responsible and sociable. “I understood that college and life should be dealt with seriously. I gained many friends and I hope that I had made myself worthy to be part of the WMSU history.
