2010 TOYM AwardsCongratulations to Dr. Edsel Maurice Salvaña (Main’92) for being named one of 2010’s Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) for medicine and social activisim.  His advocacy in battling HIV has led to the widespread recognition of the HIV and AIDS in the country.

The Ten Outstanding Young Men (TOYM) Award is recognized as one of the Philippines' prestigious awards for young people aged 18 to 40 who have excelled in their respective fields and have contributed much to the welfare of their countrymen and the development of the country. The award is co-sponsored by the Gerry Roxas Foundation since 1973 but it was initiated by the Manila Jaycees in 1959. The Philippine Jaycees (Junior Chamber International - Philippines) adopted this project on 1959. Since then, more than 400 inspiring Filipino youth from different sectors have been honored.   The theme for 2010 was "Heroes Create Heroes." The winners were announced during simple rites at the Malacañang Palace in December, with the awards being given by President Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III himself.
