Tarlac Cong. Villanueva beams with pride for Math wiz Tarlaqueno
Tarlac 3rd District Representative Noel Villanueva is beaming with pride after a Tarlaqueno student he helped was a major winner in a recently-held international math contest.
“Nakakatuwa po talagang makitang ang ating mga natutulungang kabataan ay talagang nagsisikap at nagtatagumpay,” Villanueva said Tuesday on his Facebook page.
Villanueva congratulated Roenz Joshlee Timbol for being a Gold medalist in the 2018 International Mathematics Competition held in Singapore.
Timbol, from Maliwalo National High School in Tarlac City, was among several Filipino students who competed during the 14th International Mathematics Competition held last July 27-30.
According to local reports, the Philippines finished first in the competition after bagging 27 gold medals, 53 silver and 116 bronze, beating China, Taiwan, Vietnam and Indonesia.
Villanueva shared a message sent to him by Timbol in mid-September, thanking him for extending financial support.
Timbol told the politiko that he was the student from Tarlac City who approached him for financial support for the math contest. “Thank you po, kahit di niyo kami constituent, yet (you) nagbigay po kayo,” Timbol wrote.
Villanueva expressed hope that Timbol will be an inspiration to his fellow young Tarlaquenos.
