Tayud National High School and Florencio Urot Memorial National High School were among the 65 public high schools in Cebu recognized by Globe Bridging Communities (Globe BridgeCom), the corporate social responsibility arm of Globe Telecom, during the 3rd Cebu Education Congress held last February 19 – 22, 2009 at the SM City Cebu Trade Hall in Cebu City.

Organized by CEO Events and Expo Organizers, the education expo aims to aid parents and students alike who are looking for excellent education providers. Furthermore, the Cebu Education Expo is geared towards the demystification of career options among students and adults.

The 65 high schools honored came from the school division of Cebu, Cebu City, Lapu-Lapu City, Mandaue City, Talisay City and Toledo City. These schools have been exerting efforts and pooling resources to sustain the donation that Globe has given them for the past three years under the telecommunication company’s Internet-In-Schools Program (ISP).

ISP provides free Internet access to partner schools in the country in contribution to the Gearing Up Internet Literacy and Access for Students (GILAS) program of the Ayala Foundation, Inc.
