CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – With the active partnership of Rotarians and the City Government of Cagayan de Oro under the leadership of Rolando “Klarex” Uy, another historic event unfolds at the City Hall.
This time, it will be the youth leaders chosen from different schools and universities that will govern City Hall for at least one week, according to reports obtained by the Mindanao Daily.
This event, spearheaded by the Rotary Club of Cagayan de Oro is dubbed as “RCCDO’s Flagship Project,” being Chaired by Rtn Armen Malawani and under the directorship of the very energetic & dynamic New Gen Director, Grant Amoncio.
It started with a flag raising ceremony attended by the member-Rotarians of RCCDO led by the “RCCDO Spouses” and represented by Pres Abing, who really woke up early not to miss the momentous flag raising ceremony at the City Hall.
After the flag raising ceremony, the induction of the set of youth officers who will govern the City Hall from November 7-11, 2022. The newly elected youth leaders were inducted into office by no less than City Mayor Uy, at the City Hall Quadrangle.
RCCDO’s special project for the youth kicked off last November 4, 2022, with the election of student leaders coming from among the 46 schools in the city.
The program is aimed at involving the 30 high school student leaders who will assume the role of public officials, participate in local governance and actively participate in all activities related to rotary youth.
This year’s week-long program focuses on 2 thematic areas: Mental Health & Fighting Misinformation and allows public and private senior high school student leaders to assume the role of public officials in the City Hall.
Culmination of the Rotary project
The culmination day of the Rotary City Youth Official (RCYO) Event finally ended with a big bang of success.
Thanks to the ever committed and workaholic New Gen Director Grant Amoncio and Project Chair Armen Malawani for ensuring that the banner carrying this Flagship Project continue to fly up high the bright blue skies of service and engagement. Thanks too to our lovely & ever supportive RCCDO Spouses led by Pres Abing for their usual aid, support and assistance to the Rotarians moreso in times of need and want.
And much thanks also to our IPDG John Mark Sarraga & Lady Ching for standing abreast with us in this auspicious gathering, silently coaching, mentoring and whispeing words of good counsel to make sure that no loose end is left unattended. It is to be noted that it was during IPDG John Mark’s time when City Ordinance 10310-2006 was issued when the RCYO’s Project was formally launched by former City Mayor Donkoy Emano on September 25, 2006.
As RCCDO’s Flagship Project, it circumscribes the Rotarian’s Creed for a good program which covers: Fellowship, Integrity, Diversity, Inclusion, Service and most especially Leadership & Commitment. Thus, we also render our snappy salute with much pride & joy to the new set of 2022 Rotary City Youth Officials who diligently labored to produce a record-breaking 27 City Council Resolutions despite their brief stint in Office.
