Atienza urges youth to be models in society
Cabarroguis, Quirino (23 February) -- Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) secretary Atienza has encouraged the youth sector here to emulate good character to help in the development of the country.
Atienza who attended the 2009 Cagayan Valley Regional Athletic Association (CAVRAA) meet as guest speaker said the youth should learn to follow laws of the country and act properly inorder to contribute immensely to the country's progress.
"Let us become models in ourselves, our family, our community and our economy. With these, I believe that no country will help us in these times of crisis," Atienza told to thousands of athletes from the provinces of Batanes, Cagayan Isabela, Quirino and Nueva Vizcaya.
He said the youth should follow the values of excellence, integrity and solidarity to push the country forward.
