DUMAGUETE CITY, Aug. 10 For the second time, Department of Education Sec. Armin A. Luistro has designated an officer-in-charge of the division of schools in the province of Negros Oriental.
Dr. Salustiano Jimenez was installed Thursday without hitches, unlike the designation then of Dumaguete City DepEd division superintendent of schools Dr. Ramir Uytico, whose designation was withdrawn by an undersecretary on the same day he was supposed to assume office at the division of Negros Oriental.
DepEd regional director Carmelita Dulangon led the installation of Dr. Jimenez at the Dep Ed division office in Negros Oriental in the presence of Rep. Jocelyn Limkaichong, Rep. Pryde Henry Teves and Gov. Roel Degamo.
He took over over the helm in place of Dr. Marilyn Andales, who was expected to assume as city schools division superintendent of Guihulngan City, Negros Oriental.
Luistro said Jimenez designation carried with it the authority to assume the powers, duties and responsibilities of a schools division superintendent and as such he was authorized to sign communications and approve appointments delegated to schools division superintendents. As OIC, he is entitled to representation and transportation allowance except the salary of the position.
In her message, Dulangon enjoined the new division superintendent to be a good leader, one who takes care of his people, serves his people wholeheartedly, guides his people and make sure that the vision, mission and goals of the department are attained. (PNA)
