Cebu City, Philippines— Thirteen students from Cebu made it to the list of regional finalists for Central Visayas in the search for the Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP).

The 13 students were part of the 20 finalists from the Central Visayas.

The others from UC were Marc Lennard Colina, Shyra Marie Miñoza, and Niño Jan Miole.

A screening committee was formed to pick the top 20 out of the 36 nominees from across Central Visayas. The said selection body is composed of experts on different fields like business, education, engineering, and social sciences.

On May 22, 2019, all regional finalists will undergo a formation program.

The judging and awarding for these finalists will be on May 25, 2019, at the Skyhall of SM Seaside, which is presented by Yuenthai Philippines and Commission on Higher Education Region VII. It is co-presented by Fly Ace Corporation.
