Ex-guv takes over NVSU prexy

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya, March 4 (PIA) - Former Governor Ruth Padilla has been chosen as the Officer-In-Charge of the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) here

Padilla’s designation came after University President Andres Taguiam filed his retirement last month.

Padilla, who was unanimously chosen by her fellow Board of Regents also served as the National President of the Philippine Nurses Association (PNA) and the province’s Governor for one term.

“I am deeply honored and humbled that I was chosen for this position. Rest assured that I will do my best for the organization where I was chosen to serve,” she said.

Padilla was sworn to office yesterday by Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Commissioner Lilian Delas Llagas.

She will serve as NVSU OIC until a new University President will be chosen.

NVSU officials said they were amazed on the sudden retirement of the former president who was reportedly vying for his second term as university head. (MDCT/BME/PIA 2-Nueva Vizcaya)
