By Lorma Baguio-Jumalon
Davao City (11 October) -- The National Youth Day (NYD) volunteers headed by Ms. Cheryl Vilog joined the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Federation's Anti-Drug and Anti-Smoking Campus Tour campaign.
The first stop was held at the University of Mindanao High School campus, October 2, from 8 to 12 noon and at Davao City National High School, from 1 to 5 pm.
The SK staff were there to support the campaign.
Davao Anti-Smoking Task Force Chairperson, Dr. Domilyn Villarreiz gave the rationale of the said forum.
The presence of the NYD promo team was to disseminate the information about the celebration this coming November 8-12.
The short interaction with the students boosted the morale of the NYD promotion team to continue visiting the schools.
LOC teams conduct ocular inspection
"NYD na jud…I can feel the spirit!" said one of the NYD volunteers when they visited the Local Organizing Committee 3- at Ateneo Matina.
Secretariat head, Nilfa Bagnol, Ways and Means member, April Evangelista, Promotions head, Carol Legacion, MRP-LOC 3 head Pamela Panaguiton and MRP-LOC 1 (UIC Bajada) planned the possible arrangements of the Information/ Help Desk, Media Desks, and Souvenirs and Bazaars booths.
The visit was done to secure the clear flow of the visitors/ exhibitors who will also take part in the event.
DACS responds to NYD's call
The Davao Association of Colleges and Universities (DACS) Director, Mr. Jimmy Loie Dela Vega relayed a good proposal on putting up NYD streamers on different schools within Davao and approved in principle the out-of-town promo tours to bring NYD to the grassroots level especially to central schools like Cor Jesu College in Digos and St. Mary's in Tagum.
Mr. Dela Vega ended with high hopes to gather at least 24 information officers from schools to help in the promotions.
With DACS' support, the NYD promotions will surely be intensified especially to the faculty, students and would-be delegates. (NYD/PIA XI) [top]
