President Benigno S. Aquino III honors 7 recipients of Ten Outstanding Young Men 2012 (T.O.Y.M.) inside Malacañang Palace today, January 9, 2013, with a speech held at Rizal Hall. TOYM 2012 awardees composed of international rap artist Allan “apl.de.ap” Pineda, GMA News reporter Jiggy Manicad, young legislator Emmeline Aglipay, heritage advocate Ivan Henares, Philippine Azkals’ Chieffy Caligdong, Abellardo David, and Warren Baticados.

For more than half-a-century, the TOYM has become an institution, having honored countless young leaders who have accomplished considerable, tangible results in the pursuit of excellence.

Here are parts of the President’s parting speech and we quote,

To our awardees today: The best of your work is indeed still to come: You are going to be a vital part of our nation’s future. And so I am here today not merely to award you, but to personally challenge you to do more. What I have learned as president is that no single person, no single entity, or corporation, or government can manage the full-scale turnaround of this country solely on their own. We need each Filipino to do their part. So I say to you apl., Em, Warren, Chieffy, Jiggy, Archie, and Ivan — pasensya na kayo kung feeling close na tayo: This country needs you to continue being creative, excellent, and relevant. You are no longer just artists, politicians, medical professionals, athletes, champions of heritage, or journalists; you are inspirations to our countrymen, and your continued pursuit of excellence will tell our people that the fight to bring this country to prominence continues. Rest assured, I will stay the course with you. Together, let us start the new year right. As we leave this hall today, let us get back to our desks, our clinics, our concert halls, our football fields more energized than ever before and show our countrymen and the world just how outstanding the Filipino is.

Congratulations to one and all. Thank you and good day.
