The Award is a testament of the generosity of the Gotianun Family which donated the school buildings, dormitory, sports facilities, and provided the scholarships and other needs of the ALGCIT students, the hard work of SHS and ALGCIT administrators, faculty, dormitory personnel, and staff, and the support of our partner institutions such as the DSWD.
