𝗟𝗢𝗢𝗞: Woven with the torch of leadership and laurel of service, a total of 350 student leaders of Naga College Foundation, Inc. (NCF) convened for the Induction and Oath-taking Ceremonies, on Saturday, November 12, 2022, at The Quad.
Wearing their modern barong and filipiniana, the new breed of student leaders pledged their commitment to leadership and service before Hon. Ghiel G. Rosales, Naga City Councilor, as the inducting officer. Hon. Rosales challenged the student leaders to lead and serve beyond the academe while fostering social justice to attain holistic progress and community development.
With high hopes, incumbent CSG President John Neil Cabalquinto assured the tigers’ community that his “leadership will communicate louder than words” and emphasized the significance of collective actions “in bringing good governance rooted in the belief that reforming is not to please others, but by heart, valuing what the organization stands for”— as he delivered his words of commitment, responding to the challenge of former president Ibasco who rallied for the continuous “service and better leadership” in the latter’s words of challenge.
Meanwhile, Ms. Rochelle Ontengco Priela, keynote speaker, named the student leaders as the “backbone of the institution” and pinned six tips for student leadership, which will help the student leaders dispense efficient and effective service.
In his message, NCF President Mario C. Villanueva uttered that “the reason why all the NCF stakeholders are striving for growth and development— because we are inspired by our students, especially those who are doing the extra mile to help the institution grow, like student leaders”. President Villanueva also said that the NCF offered all the achievements of the institution to all the students and their parents who entrusted to NCF their quest for learning.
Moreover, Mr. Michael Dominic Alarkon, Coordinator of the Office for Student Affairs (OSA), conferred the certificates of accreditation and recognition to 10 mandated organizations and 24 non-mandated organizations that are expected to work hand in hand with the institution in promoting the welfare and interests of the students.
To conclude the ceremonies, Alarkon handed over to Cabalquinto the gavel signifying his leadership and authority to sit on the highest student governing position.
Shortly after the ceremonies, guests and student leaders proceeded to the covered court for the fellowship dinner.
