SCHOLAR DAYS 2015 goes cultural

To provide holistic opportunities and development programs for Catbalogan City scholars, the City Government of Catbalogan thru the dynamic leadership of City Mayor Step Uy Tan initiated the 2nd Scholar Day with the theme “Scholar Day goes Cultural: Love our Culture, Imbibe our Heritage” last June 5, 2015.

The city scholars numbering to more than 1,000 students combined for college and high school were divided into six clusters to conceptualize a cultural dance presentation coming from various regions of the country such as Northern Luzon, Southern Luzon, Western Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao, and Southern Mindanao.

During the contest proper’s opening program, Hon. Stephany Uy Tan, in her message said that the scholars have a crucial role in city’s affairs specially in preserving the culture and heritage of Catbalogan. She added that the investment that the city is giving to these scholars is anchored on the firm trust on their potential and capability to make a valuable difference in communities as attested by the previous accomplishments and successful engagements e. g. Tribu Katbalaugan’s participation in SINULOG and ALIWAN FIESTA.

Also present during the affair are city officials, Vice Mayor Art Gabon, and Councilor Tekwa Uy and the members of the judging panel, MARK RANEL P CABATUAN, ALFREDO L GUTAY JR, JANNEIL TAPALES MAINAR, DENNIS COSMOD and RANDY E PACADALJEN.

Right after the presentations, the adjudged winners are 1st Placer Cluster 4, 2nd Placer Cluster 2, 3rd Placer Cluster 3. The barangays covered of these winning clusters are Cluster 4 (Guinsorongan, Bunuanan, Pangdan, Darahuway Daco, Darahuway Gote, Ibol, Pangdan and Basiao), Cluster 2 (Barangay 7 to 13, Lagundi, Guindapunan, and Soccoro) and Cluster 3 (Barangay 1 to 6, Muñoz, San Pablo and Mercedes).
