An active student leader during her college days, Fregil received numerous awards including the Academic Excellence Award, which she received during the 69th Baccalaureate Commencement Exercises held on March 28, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center.
Fregil was also the 2014 Model Student recognized by the School of Sciences, Liberal Arts and Teacher Education. In 2015, she was awarded the Best in Oral Research Presentation during the Research Week at LCC Bacolod.
She was a volunteer electives teacher in educational programs and projects that provide greater access to education for children from economically poor backgrounds like LCC’s Mother Rita Barceló Night High School and the Klasmeyts for Kids, while being a staff writer for The Ripples, LCC’s official student publication.
After taking the professional oath, Fregil plans to continue volunteering. She said she’s very thankful to her teachers and friends at LCC Bacolod whom she shared the notes and materials she used for the review. “I had little time to prepare that is why I never expected this blessing. But with the help of my school, LCC Bacolod, and the unending support from my teachers and friends, I was able to review well despite the limited time” she added.
