Converted in 2009 through R.A. 9744, Cebu Technological University (CTU), formerly Cebu State College of Science and Technology (CSCST), commemorated on November 10 its 8th founding anniversary.
CTU Danao ushered guests in the morning to its newly renovated Student Activity Center, one of the many projects in CTU President Rosein A. Ancheta Jr.’s administration.
Reminding everyone of the need for progress in terms of innovation, transparency and quality service was the intention of Dr. Ancheta in his speech.
He believed in a healthy workplace for both students and personnel toward maintaining the premier brand of the university.
Since he took office in 2015, booming infrastructure has been one of the many outputs that evidenced his vision for a greater CTU.
The mention of producing quality members of the workforce by one of the guests from the local government of Danao was a commendation to the responsibility exercised by the pool of academics who have been working closely with the administration to comply with standards.
He also reiterated the president’s note on continuing the pact between CTU and other local government units as they also promote the success of CTU located in almost all key areas of Cebu Province.
Celebrating the founding anniversary serves as a commitment to proceed with the goal of fulfilling the tasks set for the greater involvement of stakeholders.
At the outset of the groundbreaking ceremony following the releasing of doves and balloons in shimmering confetti, CTU Danao Campus Director Rose Mary Almacen declared the start of the construction of the GAA-funded Research and Development and Engineering Building to be completed within 270 calendar days.
She spoke of the school’s obligation to provide students the best venue for learning in order to advance knowledge and skills for the nation’s capability to compete among developing countries.
The implementation of the project runs alongside other plans to complete other 14 GAA-funded developments for 2018 amounting to 155 million pesos as mentioned by Dr. Ancheta at the groundbreaking event before heading back to the activity center for lunch.
From opening ceremony to midday, participants were partially drawn to the events that continue in the afternoon with some parlor games and a cocktail party in the evening. RM
