Gov. Guico to sign MOA with UP-Baguio for the secondment of Dr. Raymundo Rovillos as PPC President

LINGAYEN, PANGASINAN—The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP), during its regular session on January 15, has approved a resolution authorizing Governor Ramon V. Guico III to enter into and sign a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the University of the Philippines (UP)-Baguio relative to the secondment of Dr. Raymundo D. Rovillos as President of the Pangasinan Polytechnic College (PPC).

Authored by Vice Governor Mark Ronald DG. Lambino, the resolution stated that the PPC needs the services of a highly competent and technically proficient person who will serve as a consultant and interim president.

Hence, “Dr. Raymundo D. Rovillos, a professor at the Department of History and Philosophy, College of Social Sciences of the University of the Philippines Baguio, has been identified to qualify for the position at the PPC.”

Furthermore, the resolution cited that “Dr. Rovillos is willing to be seconded to the PPC for the period from February 1, 2024, to January 31, 2025, and hereby accepts and agrees to perform the duties as President as stipulated in the terms of the secondment.”

The PPC is a public, non-sectarian, non-partisan technical-vocational, and higher educational institution operating primarily under the subsidy of the Provincial Government of Pangasinan.

As stated in a letter sent earlier by Gov. Guico to Prof. Corazon Abansi, Chancellor of UP-Baguio, the former cited that the province is currently vigorously carrying out programs and projects that are deemed pivotal toward the realization of the present administration’s strategic initiatives in various areas such as social and economic development, public policy and governance, infrastructure, culture, heritage, and education.

The establishment of the PPC, the governor said in the letter, aims to prepare the youth for immediate employment in the province’s immediate communities and beyond.
“We are now in the process of developing academic programs in three areas/fields: agricultural entrepreneurship, sustainable local governance and program/project management, and creativity and design,” Gov. Guico stated in the letter.
