Muling pumirma ng kontrata ang Kapuso actor na si Benjamin Alves bilang ambassador ng GMA Network Excellence Award (GNEA) noong nakaraang March 28 sa GMA Network Center.
Ito ang ikaapat na taon ng pagiging ambassador ni Benjamin ng GNEA.
Present sa kanyang contract singing sina GMA Network Chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon, Vice President for Corporate Affairs and Communications Angel Javier Cruz, Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, Assistant Vice President for Talent Imaging and Marketing Simoun S. Ferrer, at Mercator Artist and Model Management President and CEO Jonas Gaffud.
“Every year, we try to find more ways to connect with students.
“This year, with the help of GMA Regional TV, we’re doing the Kapuso Masterclass Series where we’ve been able to spread the word and awareness to Cebu, Bukidnon, and Davao.
“It’s been great being more involved and connecting with students all over the country,” pahayag ni Benjamin sa kanyang interview sa 24 Oras kamakailan.
Sa kanyang Facebook account, pinost ni Benjamin na hindi naging madali sa kanya ang ma-maintain niya ang kanyang grades sa school kasabay ng mga naging trabaho niya.
Pinagmalaki ng aktor ang pinagdaanan niyang mga paghihirap para mapanatili ang kanyang pagiging isang scholar sa school.
Heto ang pinost ni Benjamin sa FB noong nakaraang March 28:
Ayon kay Atty. Gozon, role model si Benjamin sa mga kabataan ngayon, lalo na ng mga working student.
“Apat na taon na siyang ambassador and we’ve been very happy with his involvement in GNEA.
“He has been a very appropriate choice dahil sa tunay na buhay, si Benjamin ay hindi lamang mahusay na artista, isa rin siyang scholar at summa cum laude graduate.
“He is a worthy role model to students across our nation.”
Dalawang award ang ipapamahagi ng GMA Network to the outstanding graduating students of Communication (Mass Communication, Multimedia Arts, or Advertising) and technology-based courses (Electronics and Communications Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Information Technology).
Nominations for the academic year 2018-2019 are open until May 15.
