JR Lopez Gonzales 3:54 AM 4

For four years now since 2008, the ABS-CBN News Channel's Square Off has been hosting televised national inter-school debate competitions.

I know that this is but a tough competition ahead of us yet our eyes still shine with optimism, as it always should be. The Mindanaoan team is represented by Abdul Raffy A. Tomawis, and me, JR Lopez Gonzales in a modified Oxford-Oregon (Cross-Examination) debate format trained by the best of MSU lawyers headed by Atty. Alizedney M. Ditucalan.

For some backgrounders on the team, Raffy and I are colleagues in the MSU-IIT debate society. All of us are from the Law Extension class in MSU-IITand this time, represents the entire system for the said event. This is the first time for the MSU College of Law to participate in such a huge occasion.

For three years in college, I've been debating in the undergrad for the varsity (and winning some medals along the way); yet this is one of the most important competitions for me. My alma mater, MSU-IIT performed very well in the Frankahan a few years back ; apparently this puts a bigger toll on us in the new playing field of legal realm.

Discarding such pressure, we cross our fingers with the thought of doing the best for the university and the people we love.

In behalf of the team, I ask for your support and appreciate the beauty of discourse through the said national televised event. Please watch our debate match at ABS-CBN News Channel (ANC, Channel 27 on Sky Cable) on October 7 (Friday) at 7:00 PM. Mabuhay Mindanao!

  1. The best of luck, JR! Of course, also to my very dear friend and student, Safa. Raffy's in, too. :-)

    Live your dream...

  2. You can do it JR! Will definitely watch your shining moment!

    Continue to make Soccsksargen and MSU proud!

  3. Magandang araw po sa lahat! Taos puso po akong nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng nanood at sumuporta ng ANC SquareOff: The CVC Law Debates.

    Naging kaabang-abang naman ang debate sa kadahilanang ipinagtibay ng grupo ang kanilang panig kahit na hindi nakipag-clash ang argumento ng kabila.

    Bagama't hindi namin nasungkit ang panalo sa nasabing diskursong naganap laban sa joint-force ng DLSU at FEU; ang Deb...ating Team ng Mindanao State University ay hindi pa rin susuko at nangangakong lalaban muli atp aghuhusayan pa sa susunod na pagkakataon.

    Ako, sampu ng aking mga kasama, ay siguradong babaunin ang mga leksyon, kaganapan, at mga masasayang alaala sa aming pakikipagtunggali. Masasabing hindi naging oras ng MSU ngayon, pero sa mga darating na panahon, alam nating mas mapaghuhusayan pa natin ito.

    Salamat po sa mga kababayan ko sa Tupi, South Cotabato, kay Attorney Zed Ditucalan, sa mga mag-aaral ng MSU-IIT, sa aking mga estudyanteng nanood at nakiantabay, at mga kamag-aral sa College of Law, lalung-lalo na sa aking mga magulang na sina Grace at Jessie Gonzales, at sa aking supportive na mga nakakatandang kapatid na sina Jasper Ian at Celeste Mae.

    Maraming salamat po sa inyong suporta.
