Commentary: PGMA meets, congratulates bar topnotcher

by Bapa Bedu

Koronadal, South Cotabato (10 April) -- Another bar toptocher although coming from a not-so-well known law school, Atty. Noel Neil Malimban is the 2006 Bar Topnotcher!

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo took time out Saturday to meet the top notcher of the 2006 Bar Examinations, congratulating and wishing him luck while giving him a gift daintily wrapped in white paper.

"Somebody from the Cordilleras has topped the bar for the second time from the same school and really represents the future of our country, the future of your region…" the President enthused during the courtesy call of the University of the Cordilleras (UC) delegation which included Noel Neil Malimban, the 2006 bar top notcher.

To the top officers of the UC which produced a second bar top notcher in eight years, President Arroyo said: "I wish you more and more success."

The President then recalled that her father, the late President Diosdado Macapagal, was the first bar top notcher of the University of Sto. Tomas, so she understands how jubilant the UC is with its second feat.

"I remember when my father topped the bar, he shifted from a faculty to a professional life and I hope you will be as successful or even more successful." President Arroyo said.

Congratulations to Atty. Noel Neil Malimban as the 2006 Bar top notcher and to all the bar passers. (PIA 12) [top]
