Occidental Mindoro VG Alfaro attends teachers’ oath taking, awards young achievers


Occidental Mindoro Vice Governor Peter J. Alfaro recently graced the oath taking of newly minted teachers in the province as well as the awarding ceremony for young achievers in the province.

Alfaro reminded the teachers that they should be proud with their profession as in their hands lie the future.

“Be proud, you are a teacher, the future depends on you”, the Vice Governor quipped.

Alfaro also led the awarding ceremony for the young achievers in the province or those who topped their respective board exams.

Also present during the ceremony last Feb. 15 were Governor Gene Mendiola and Rep. Josephine “Nene” Sato.

The said award was pursuant to the special ordinance authored by Alfaro which institutionalized the granting of awards and achievers to young achievers and highly competent resident resident individual of Oriental Mindoro.

The said ordinance aims to “recognize the residents who are highly competent individuals and achievers who are placers of the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) Board Examination, Allied PRC Board Examination, Professional Organizations, and other Government Initiated Examination.”
