DIRECTOR'S Cut: (This portion features the thoughts of DepED 11 OIC Regional Director Nenita E. Lumaad, CSEE to all stakeholders and recipients of the efforts to improve the basic education) "You have to be familiar with all the programs and projects of our organization and you have to be accountable to each one. There should be sense of urgency in whatever you do."

It is a sense of fulfillment seeing our sister Melanie finishing her college degree after 25 years since she started going to college at the Davao del Norte Learning Institute (DNLI) in partnership with the Davao del Norte State College (DNSC). In jest, we call it, graduating in a "silver platter."


Our family is very much indebted to Gov. Rodolfo P. del Rosario whose vision to make every Dabaonon raise his quality of life becomes instrumental for my sister's success.

Melanie is one of the 30 provincial Capitol employees who graduated from their course, Bachelor of Public Administration. No less than DNSC President Jonathan Bayogan conferred the diploma to the 30 graduates with Gov. Del Rosario as the keynote speaker of their graduation held at RDR Gym on August 4.

Gov. Del Rosario launched the institute over a year ago to raise the academic qualification of Capitol personnel, who are undergraduates, vocational-technical graduates or high school graduates to earn their Baccalaureate Degrees.

It was further established basically to serve as a learning facility for public employees, barangay functionaries, and out-of-school youths, in line with the local chief executive's P.E.O.P.L.E. development agenda.

The governor said DNLI facilitated the upgrade of knowledge, moral fitness, probity, efficiency and capability among the successful scholars.

Del Rosario noted that the above graduates have been in the service for a long time but cannot move upward in the organizational ladder despite their invaluable experiences and innumerable trainings simply because they do not have college degrees. With this one year and six months innovative degree program, DNLI credited their combined trainings and seminars attended.

The governor took the opportunity to thank the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Members headed by Vice Governor Victorio Suaybaguio for the passage of Provincial Ordinance No. 2012-001 authored by SP Member Shirley Belen Aala and PCL-LA executive director Helario Caminero.

Del Rosario said DNLI has become more imperative as the provincial government transcended from simply being a service provider to an enabler - one that makes an enabling environment conducive for growth and sustainable development.

This corner hopes that the governor will continue with this program to alleviate the plight of those whose skills and talents can be easily developed through the opportunities like the one provided by the provincial government to its employees.
