Gov. Matugas Ingenuity to a More Successful Life of Students takes into a Forum

As part of the initiative to mold students’ perception towards a bright future amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, the provincial government of Surigao del Norte, in partnership with the Department of Education, have come to realize the conduct of guiding Grade 11 top performer students among tri-division; Surigao del Norte, Surigao City and Siargao Division, of choosing career path through a series of talks given by three prestigious universities namely; Caraga State University (CSU), University of Southeastern Philippines (USeP) and Surigao State College of Technology (SSCT) – Main Campus. The said event was entitled “Top Students Forum 2022” with the theme “Career Guidance and Opportunities Towards a Successful Professional life” and was held last March 23, 2022 at Philippine Gateway Hotel, Surigao City. 

Provincial Governor Atty. Francisco T. Matugas, in his message, said that the increasing demand and lack of professional workers in different fields in the province, especially in medicine, is a concern that must be given an attention and that by giving a forum like this to top performer students is a great act to produce professionals that will fill the gaps of services.

Furthermore, among the professionals who attended that made the event come to its essence was Dr. Gregorio Z. Gamboa, Jr. Ph. D., the president of SSCT, who made the first talk and was followed by the program head of the USeP, Dr. Virnalisi C. Mindana, Ph. D., and the third and last speaker of the forum, Dr. Merliza F. Libao Ph.D., director of the Office of Admission and Scholarship of CSU. The three speakers, in order to expand students’ perception about career choice and decision making, highlighted their program offerings of their respective schools and the scholarship offerings they have for students to apply. 

Moreover, after the series of talks given by the expertise, an open forum was conducted to assess students’ concerns and problems regarding with their education. 

The event ended successfully leaving students who attended, as well as the advisers, delighted and inspired of their journey to success through education.

Layon din ng adopt-a-municipality program na by April 30, 2022, bilang target date,  lahat ng totally damaged houses ay mabigyan ng maayos na tirahan. 

Maaring magpatuloy ang kasunduang ito matapos ang anim na buwan depende sa pangangailangan ng LGUs. 

Narito ang napagkasunduang Adopt-a-Municipality partnership: 

- Taganito Mining Corporation (TMC) para sa Gen. Luna at Pilar LGUs

- THPAL para sa Sta. Monica, Burgos at Socorro LGUs

- HMC para sa San Benito at Dapa LGUs
