Moodbidri: Karnataka's pride, Asha Bhat, Miss Supra National-2014 winner and also a Alvas student was felicitated by Alvas educational foundation here on Monday.
In the programme held at V S Acharya auditorium in Vidyagiri, Bhat said, "Each person gets opportunities. When I was in NCC at Alvas college, I learnt discipline and hard work. We should have dreams and to fulfill it there are always good opportunities. I too wanted to get felicitated when our director Dr Mohan Alvas used to felicitate achievers when I was the student here. Now that dream has come true," she said.
Dr M Mohan Alvas who presided over the function said, "Asha Bhat was a talented student and a topper. She had good percentage in SSLC and she got free education under adopt plan of the school. Even in PUC, she was given free education for her excellence in NCC.
She made India and Alvas college proud after she participated in an international NCC Cadet meet held in Colombo. By seeing her performance, I thought she would become a pilot or join the military services and make our country proud but instead she has opted for modelling and made Kannadigas, Indians and our college proud with her recent beauty contest title." He also urged the students to learn from Asha Bhat and make everyone proud.
Ex MLA and trustee K Amarnath Shetty, Meenakshi Alva, Jayakar Alva were present at the function.
Professor Deepa Jayakara compered the programme.
