In its rich and eventful history, SPIT has achieved innumerable successes. It has been a tradition to felicitate the achievers and motivate them to keep up the good work. The past year’s triumphs have surpassed every year before that. The Annual Day of Academic Year 2018-19 was held on 3rd April, 2019.
Since it was also the Traditional Day everybody was already decked up for the occasion. As the afternoon approached beautifully dressed faculty members and students made their way to the SPJIMR auditorium. By half past four the auditorium was filled with excited, buzzing SPITians.
The event was flagged off by an awe-inspiring video showcasing all the events that took place throughout the year. Mr. Sandeep Mehta was the guest of honour that afternoon. Our Principal, Prachi Gharpure, said a few words on how one should pave their way to success. She was followed by the other dignitaries including our General Secretary, Sahil Krishnadas, who graced the students with their wise words. Each of the dignitaries was gifted with a tulsi plant, a token of appreciation of their presence.
Over a span of two hours all the awardees were called upon the stage to receive their awards. The first category that was presented was the Academic Awards. The top 3 highest scorers of the year 2017-18 across all branches and first, second and third year Engineering were the winners. These were followed by the Sports awards, starting with the Girls Throwball team and their coach for their exceptional zeal and performance over the year gone by.
