For 9 years, Jaydee Niere Lucero was among the beneficiaries of the scholarship from GMA’s popular noontime show, Eat Bulaga! And the young man recently made everyone proud when he topped the November 2018 Civil Engineering Board Exams.
Garnering a rating of 97.20%, the young graduate had the highest score out of everyone who took the exams given by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC).
Lucero graduated with the course of Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman. He took the civil engineering board exams last November 10 and 11. Out of 13,887 exam takers, only 6,262 passed the exams – and Lucero bested them all!
The new engineer was excited over his success but knew that he owed this to the many people who helped him out throughout his journey.
In a post on Facebook, the new civil engineer and board exam topnotcher thanked the people who helped him through, especially Eat Bulaga! for sending him to school these past 9 years.
“Sa Eat Bulaga, sa pagpapaaral ninyo sa akin (at sa aming mga EBEST scholars) for the past 9 years. Hindi ko marahil mararating ang tagumpay na ito kung hindi dahil sa inyo, thank you po!” the new engineer wrote.
Of course, he also thanked his school as well as his mentors.
“Sa UP Diliman, especially sa Institute of Civil Engineering (at sa thesis adviser kong si sir Hernandez) for bringing out the best in us, at sa suporta. Maraming salamat din po!” he shared.
Lucero also thanked the people who lent him calculators, those who lent him books and reviewers, those who guided him through the years and provided him inspiration, fellow quizzers and reviewees, the review center, and Facebook review groups.
“Sa Facebook groups Math Enthusiasts Quiz Group at Civil Engineering Board Exam Problems (Philippines). These two groups have helped me much during college and review, and I’m very grateful that I’ve helped and motivated others through these groups. I’ll continue to do so in the future,” he added.
He ended the post by thanking his late father and praising God as well as congratulating the other new civil engineers, encouraging everyone to serve the country and the people.
