CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, PHILIPPINES — Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy has signed Executive Order No. 044, creating a Technical Working Group (TWG) to do a feasibility study for the proposed Cagayan de Oro City College.
Among the members of the TWG is Mayor Klarex as chairman, and 4 vice chairpersons: Councilor Suzette Magtajas-Daba, DepEd Schools Division Supt. Cherry Mae Limbaco-Reyes, Local School Board and Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Region 10.
The Technical Working Group for the City College also includes a few City Hall offices such as the City Administrator’s Office, Human Resource and Management Department, City Legal Office, City Budget Office, City Engineering Office, City Planning and Development Office, City Treasurer’s Office, City General Services Office and City Accounting Office.
Mayor Klarex designed the city college’s construction to allow all individuals interested in finishing college, especially those who are more in need and cannot afford to continue college.
In talks with DepEd in July, Mayor Uy previously aimed to establish a City College in CDO next year. This was disclosed by Mayor Klarex in front of the officials of the Department of Education-Division of Cagayan de Oro recently.
According to Mayor Klarex, his administration will try to create the first City College in the city so that many people can be given the opportunity to live and address poverty.
In addition, the mayor has previously announced his plan to add 86 classrooms in various barangays of this city, and during his inaugural speech, Uy disclosed that he will also be launching a Medical Scholarship Program in CDO in 2023. – WhatALife!/Zed
