ALIVIO IS NEW VCPD, OTHER NEW OFFICIALS ALSO NAMED
Professor Eduardo Alivio was designated as the new Vice Chancellor for Planning and Development through Special Order No. 1401, series of 2019 issued by the Office of the University President. Prior to his designation, he served as Director for Planning, the precursor office to the OVCPD, and as Dean of the Institute of Information and Communications Technology.
Incumbent principals Professor Manuel Pon and Mr. Jamaluddin Sala of the MSU-TCTO CDC-LES and Preparatory High School were given fresh mandates to continue as heads of their respective schools. Added to the list of principals are neophytes Ms. Nelly Salapuddin as principal of the MSU-TCTO Science High School and Mr. Rashidin Moh. Jiripa as Acting Principal of MSU-TCTO CHILDS, following the election of then-principal Prof. Almira A. Hadji as Islamic and Arabic Studies Dean.
To aid in the administration of the schools, new assistant principals were also designated. Dr. Jocelyn Pajiji is now Assistant Principal for the Preparatory High School, Mr. Mulyadi Sapal for CDC-LES, and Mr. Cesar Persial for the Science High School.
In a simple ceremony today at the Marine Science Museum, the new officials were formally installed and took their oaths of office in front of officials and heads of academic and semi-academic units. Employees who were newly-hired and whose promotions were duly approved also took their oaths of office in the same event.
Dr. Kaberl Hajilan, the Vice Chancellor for Research and Extension, in a message during the ceremony, extended his congratulations to the new officials and employees of the university.
"Achievement comes only to those unafraid, to those who have courage to exert their strength and power against countless obstacles and have guts and determination to accomplish what they started to do," he said.
He also added that achievement is largely the product of steadily raising one's levels of aspiration and expectation. "As stressed by experts, our newly installed officials today chose the road of difficult right, instead of the road of easy wrong."
