OFW frontliner in UAE recipient of Lyceum alumni outstanding award


- Advertisment -

A UAE-based Filipino frontline medical worker was recently chosen as one of the recipients of the Outstanding Lycean Alumni (OLA) Awards 2020. 

The Lyceum-Northwestern University’s Alumni Committee on Awards chose Froilan Imatong, a nurse at the Aspen Medical in Abu Dhabi. They recently announced the award during its virtual celebration of the 51st Founder’s Day on September 24. 

Imatong is a former nurse at a government hospital, primarily handling Covid-19 confirmed patients. Currently, he is one of the team leaders of the government’s vaccine mission, 4Humanity, to find the cure for the virus. 

“It is an honor for your Alma Mater, Lyceum-Northwestern University to recognize your accomplishments in your chosen field. With this award, we celebrate the tremendous impact you had done not just in our university but also to larger communities–both locally and globally,” Luz Duque-Hammershaimb, the university president, said in a congratulatory message addressed to him. 

She added that Imatong’s work and achievement mirror the university’s commitment to serving others. 

“We are proud of what you have become and your contributions. You are an inspiration to all of us as we continue to realize our vision of excellence and deepen our impact as a premier private university. You are the embodiment of how a Lycean should be,” the university president further added.
