Passion drove them to success in ITE
04 Jul 2018
Article featured two SP students, Aloysius Moh and Uriah Tan, who graduated from the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) yesterday. Aloysius, who was the valedictorian at the graduation ceremony, shared about his rebellious past. The turning point came when he witnessed his mum cry for the first time after a parent-teacher meeting. Determined to change his life, Aloysius studied hard and took a Nitec in Aerospace Avionics. He also worked with the non-profit Bone Marrow Donor Programme to drive a successful bone marrow donation project on campus, and was awarded the Lee Kuan Yew Gold Medal. The first-year SP Aeronautical Engineering student is also an active volunteer with Marsiling Community Club's Youth Executive Committee, as well as an Ambassador at the Istana Heritage Gallery, leading tours for foreign delegates. On the other hand, Uriah, who displayed academic excellence in his Electronics Engineering course at ITE, was the sole recipient of the IES Engineering Award. The SP Electrical and Electronics Engineering student shared that he decided to switch from studying Aerospace Technology to pursue a Higher Nitec diploma related to information technology as he was interested in computer programming.
