Members of the CVSC Board of Trustees (BOT), faculty and staff from the four campuses, students, as well as political bigwigs in the ComVal province were all present to congratulate Dr. Ganiera, who assumed office last June 9, 2016 after being chosen from five presidential candidates.
Previously the president of Kapalong College of Agriculture, Science and Technology (KCAST), the only locally-funded college in Mindanao to be accredited Level I by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), Dr. Ganiera will look to do the same and more in CVSC which was just established in 2013.
BOT members who expressed their messages and were present in the event were: Hon. Maria Lourdes D. Lim, National Economic Development Authority (NEDA) XI Regional Director represented by Hon. Priscilla R. Sonido, NEDA XI Assistant Regional Director; Hon. Ann K. Hofer, House of Representatives (HOR) Chair on Higher and Technical Education represented by Hon. Joseph Nolan H. Jacinto; Dr. Ricardo E. Rotoras, Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUC) President represented by Dr. Herbert Glenn P. Reyes, PASUC Executive Director; Hon. Anthony C. Sales, Department of Science and Technology XI Regional Director; Hon. Maria Carmen S. Zamora, 1st District Representative of Compostela Valley; Hon. Lilybeth M. Matunhay, CVSC Faculty Federation President; Ms. Merla D. Getubig, CVSC Non-Teaching Staff Association President; Hon. Almalyn N. Costelo, Private Sector Representative; and Hon. Weneberth L. Terez, CVSC Student Federation President.
Meanwhile, CHED Chair and BOT Chairperson Hon. Patricia B. Licuanan, represented by CHED XI Regional Director Dr. Raul C. Alvarez, officially proclaimed Dr. Ganiera the maiden president of CVSC, which signaled the conclusion of the investiture rites.
ComVal Governor Hon. Jayvee Tyron L. Uy also graced the affair and stressed his confidence in the administration of Pres. Ganiera.
“I expect CVSC to grow to a population of 8,000 students ten years from now. While we grow and take into fold the Comvaleño youth to mold, this shall always be paramount and shall not be compromised – QUALITY EDUCATION. FOR I ONLY INTEND TO PROVIDE the BEST COLLEGE EDUCATION to COMVALEÑOS – ONLY LESS. Thus, this would entail first and foremost QUALITY LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND ACADEMIC PERSONNEL – which we should commit to obtain.”,said newly appointed CVSC president Dr. Ganiera during her address.
