Jonas to install members of city college to office

CEBU, Philippines - Mandaue City Mayor Jonas Cortes will induct today the newly reconstituted members of the Mandaue City College at city hall.

The city council approved last month Ordinance No.12-2010-568 which revised the original ordinance creating the MCC which provides that nine members will compose the board of Trustees and Cortes as the chairman and Dr. Susana Cabahug as its vice chairman.

The board will also compose seven other members with the latest addition of TESDA provincial director Buenafe Sta. Rita.

The other members include CHED director Dr. Amelia Biglete, City Schools Division Superintendent Virginia Zapanta, Councilor Demetrio Cortes Jr., chairman of the committee on education , retired judge Lorenzo Paradiang, John Paul dela Serna, president of MCC's faculty and Employees Association, and Beshiel Canada, president of the school's student government.

The Mayor will issue their appointments and will immediately induct them into office after which they will proceed with their meeting.

At the meeting today, the board is expected to create the Personnel Selection committee for the selection of the 30 mandatory plantilla positions in the college based on the approved city ordinance 12-2010-566.

Dr. Cabahug said the creation of new plantilla would mean their positions are no longer interim.

Cabahug said the TESDA director is also included as member of the board because there are non-degree programs that are offered by the school which are under the supervision of TESDA which include automotive technology, drafting technology, Electronics technology, electrical technology and computer technology.

Cabahug also said she was assured of CHED director Biglete's attendance since the school has been given by CHED the authority to offer four baccalaureate programs: BEED, BSEED, BSBA, and BSIT.

In today's meeting, the board will also tackle city council resolution no.12-604-2010 "directing the city legal office through the Office of the Mayor to take legal action for the prevention of the use of the name of Mandaue City College by the break away group run by Paulus Cañete.

The college was created under city council resolution no 10-2005-324A during the incumbency of former Mayor Thadeo Ouano with Cañete as president.

The school opened in June, 2006 but after Ouano was suspended from office, then Vice Mayor Amadeo Seno Jr. took over his place and replaced Cañete with Cabahug.

When Cortes won as mayor and took over, he then confirmed the appointment of Cabahug as OIC director.

At present, the school has a population of 322 students and 24 units will only cost P3,500 per semester. — THE FREEMAN
