Pamunuan ng paaralan, nagsalita na sa plagiarism issue ng magna cum laude graduate

Naglabas ng opisyal na pahayag ang pamunuan ng Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges kaugnay ng naging mainit na isyu ng plagiarism sa kanilang magna cum laude graduate ng Batch 2022 na si Jayvee Ayen.

Humingi sila ng paumanhin sa ginawa ni Ayen, lalo na para sa pinagkuhanan nito ng inspirasyon na si Mariyela Mari Hugo, cum laude graduate ng Far Eastern University noong 2019, na siyang nagbigay ng valedictory address sa kaniyang graduating batchmates.

Nakasaad sa opisyal na pahayag ng paaralan: “The issue on the Valedictory Address of Mr. Jayvee Ayen has been dragging for days, especially in the social media/virtual world. A world we have to contend with aside from the real/physical one we have. A world that is sometimes more harsh than that we have in the daily grind.

“With all that has been said and done and on behalf of Mr. Jayvee Ayen, we apologize to Ms. Mariyela Mari G. Hugo for the carefree attitude of Mr. Ayen in unintentionally copying the idea and style of her speech without proper attribution. We apologize to all other individuals and entities who may have been offended and affected by this issue.”

Nakiusap naman ang pamunuan ng CSPC na huminto na sa pagbabash kay Ayen, lalo raw at humingi na ito ng tawag kay Hugo.

“We knock on the generosity of hearts of everyone to allow this to pass without hatred towards the person as he moves on to start a career in his life as an entrepreneur or whatever path he would wish to take. We offer a reconciliatory gesture to Ms. Hugo and all others for the gap this issue has created.

“Rest assured that internally, we shall as we always do, within the rules of the College, be making appropriate steps for corrective and formative measures towards Mr. Ayen and in the school in general.

“Finally, we appeal for sobriety and calm. Peace to all. Thank you and God bless.”

Nagbigay naman ng mensahe si Hugo tungkol sa isyu. Aniya, “The issue has been brought to my attention by concerned netizens.

“While one may have good intentions, one must still check if the means to actualize those intentions are also ethically acceptable.

“Borrowed ideas, even inspirations, should be cited or at the very least, acknowledged.

“I hope that this issue serves as a reminder to everyone to review and uphold their standards.”

Samantala, sa pamamagitan ng kanilang student publication ay humingi na rin ng tawad si Ayen kay Hugo.

“I mean not to plagiarize. Naka-relate lang din ako nang sobra noong mapanood ko ‘yung video kaya may mga lines o thoughts ako na nainput, na tumutugma sa ‘Lang video,’” ani Ayen.

“I am really sorry po. Hindi ko intensiyon na i-plagiarize yung speech niya. Nagkataon lang na same topic yung gusto kong i-address,” dagdag pa niya.
