CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, PHILIPPINES — On August 23, City Information Officer Abigail Malais reported the Mayor’s plan to build a new city college.
During a meeting held recently, the members of the LSB (Local School Board) expressed their united support for the desire and plan of Mayor Rolando “Klarex” Uy to build a City College of Cagayan de Oro.
For that purpose, a Resolution of Support was pushed by LSB members as the mayor plans to build a community college next year.
According to Mayor Klarex Uy, his administration will try to create the first City College in the city so that many people can be allowed to live and address poverty.
The executive director of LSB, Dr. Alicia Anghay, also explained that even though the Local School Board is for primary education, it is a big help to encourage the general bureaucracy of City Hall to implement the plan.
The mayor first announced the scheme during the meeting of the Department of Education – Division of Cagayan de Oro officials.
