‘Presidentiables’ lay out visions, platform in public presentation, forum
Five experienced candidates seeking the highest position in Compostela Valley State College (CVSC) presented their platform and vision during the public presentation and forum in front of the college’s stakeholders conducted last January 8, 2016 at the Municipal Gymnasium, Compostela, Compostela Valley Province.
Armed with years of educational and managerial background, the ‘presedentiables’ were Joy M. Sorrosa, Ph. D. a professor in Davao Oriental State College of Science and Technology (DOSCST); Susan Labutap, Ed. D., college president of Kolehiyo ng Pantukan; Alexander Campaner, Ph. D. president of Southern Philippines Agri-Business and Marine and Aquatic School of Technology (SPAMAST), Christine Jean Villanueva-Ganiera, president of Kapalong College of Agriculture, Sciences, and Technology (KCAST), Ed. D., and Jocelyn Hua, Ed.D, OIC Suoervising Education Progrma Specialist for the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) XI.
Each of the presidentiables gave glimpses of their views of what CVSC should be as an institution of higher education. Dr. Sorrosa emphasized that “a well-informed society will act appropriately”, while Dr. Labutap stressed that the driving force behind her candidacy is her love for ComVal as she proclaimed that she is a ComValeño. On the other hand, Dr. Campaner turned heads with his line “I will walk with you with a heart” whereas Dr. Villanueva-Ganiera championed “CVSC to be committed to a global perspective”. Lastly, Dr. Hua viewed the college as “infant yet promising”.
The said event was divided into two parts: the candidates were given five minutes to introduce qualifications, their vision, mission, objectives, and platform once they become the head of this fledgling institution. Moreover, it was concluded with a question and answer with the representatives of the college’s stakeholders.
On the other hand, the second part consisted of questions directed towards the five candidates about topics ranging from accessibility, mineral expolaration in ComVal, faculty development, Davao Regional State University System (DRSUS) and others.
The public presentation and forum gave the stakeholders of CVSC a glimpse of the ability and goals of the five candidates.
However, the votes that will determine the first president of the college rests in the hands of the Board of Trustees which consist of Chairperson Patricia Licuanan (CHED), Regional Director Maria Lourdes Lim of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), Regional Director Anthony Sales of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), Ranjit Singh Rye, representative of Sen. Pia Cayetano, the ‘mother’ of CVSC Cong. Maria Carmen “Maricar” Zamora, Student Federation President Jorelyn Castro, Faculty Federation President Lilybeth Matunhay, and other representatives from the private sector.
Once appointed, the new president will tackle critical and pressing issues surrounding the college.
