One hundred one (101) successful graduates from the different regions of the country accepted the challenge as the next generation leaders as they take on the last step of their Local Government Operations Officer Training - the Graduation Ceremony.
Last July 16, 2015, the new set of full fledged Local Government Operations Officers graduated from training held at LGA Training Center, UP Los Banos, Laguna. The training is designed to equip LGOOs with adequate knowledge and skills and instill in them the proper attitudes and desirable values to enable them to perform their mandated functions efficiently and effectively.
Out of 101 graduates, six (6) were from Central Luzon. LGOOs II Aimee P. Lacayanga and Cherry Eve M. Mesina from Province of Tarlac and LGOOs II Christian Red D. Mejia, Kristine Joy B. Pesimo, Lee Allen B. Pineda and Sheryl Ann Q. Dungca from Province of Zambales.
Dir. Marivel C. Sacendoncillo, during her message, encourage the newly graduates to never stop dreaming for with their dreams they will continue to realize that the life bestowed upon them is worth it. The message was then followed by the presentation of graduates and the conferment of Undersecretary Austere A. Panadero.
Usec Panadero's inspirational message, shared that there is no limit to creativity in DILG. The work we do is always linked to the mission of local governance thus continuous learning is a must.
Part of the graduation rites is the announcement of 10 Best Trainees of the batch measured by their over-all performance in the duration of their training. We, in Central Luzon take pride in the achievement of LGOOs II Kristine Joy B. Pesimo and Aimee P. Lacayanga for being the Top 6 and Top 9 trainees, respectively.
