PCER Chembur had initiated the Alumni Award in 2013 in order to felicitate our alumni who have displayed excellence in their professional field during the previous academic year. This year too, the awards were conducted but with a difference as we took it online.
Alumni were invited to nominate themselves via a Google Form. The self-nomination form for the awards was displayed on the PCER website (1st to 28th February, 2021) and was circulated via WhatsApp among the various alumni groups. A total of 8 responses were received in 3 categories.
Among these the winners chosen were as follows:
|Area||Name of the recipient||Batch|
|Professional Excellence||Ms. Sheeba Chikodi||2012-13|
|Academic Enrichment through ICT||Mr. Mahesh Jain||2013-14|
|Contribution to Knowledge Building||Fr. Sebastian Gomes||2014-15|
The award ceremony was held on the 8th March, 2021 from 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and was streamed live on PCER’s Youtube channel. The programmed was conducted by the Alumni Association of PCER, Chembur and hosted by Ms. Vasundhara Kaul (Alumna- Batch 2013-14) and a member of the Alumni Association.
Ms. Vasundhara greeted the online audience and called upon Principal (Dr.) Reni Francis to give the welcome address. This was followed by Dr. Swasti Dhar, Joint Secretary of the Alumni Association detailing the work and objectives of the association followed by an introduction to this year’s winners. The winners were felicitated and then were called upon to share their views with the audience.
