Teen summa cum laude breaks 65-year UP record

Nineteen year-old JOHN GABRIEL PELIAS, graduating summa cum laude with a degree in Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, broke the record of a professor emeritus in political science in UP after 65 years by garnering a weighted average of 1.016. Prof. Emerenciana Yuvienco Arcellana, Ph.D, widow of the late National Artist for Literature Francisco Arcellana and mother of STAR desk editor Juaniyo, held the previous record with 1.02 upon graduating in 1946, whose commencement speaker was President Manuel Roxas. Pelias is one of UP’s poorest scholars with his family earning less than P80,000 a year.

Congratulations John Gabriel! You’ve such a good example to many youth out there. You’ve shown how to value education, be triumphant after many challenges, and rose from difficulties in life.
