77 scouts in Benguet run offices for a day October 15

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet (15 October) -- Some 77 senior boy and girl scouts will assume offices for a day and take the posts of officials in line with the Scout Officials for a Day (SOFAD) on October 15, 2007.

Boy Scouts of the Philippines Benguet Council Chair Bial Palaez said these senior scouts underwent screening on scout leadership in the district level. Before the SOFAD scouts are fielded in the different office, he added.

SOFAD scout officials will take their oath before Governor Nestor Fongwan during the turn-over ceremony at the provincial capitol.

Of the 77 officials who will be relieving their posts for a day, 34 are local government unit officials, 13 from national line agencies, 29 officers from the Benguet State University (BSU) and one from the private sector.

After the turnover ceremony, the SOFAD officials prior to occupying their respective posts will be briefed on insights and guiding directions regarding their office functions and responsibilities.

The SOFAD Program will serve as a learning process as future leaders.

One of the activities in line with the scouting month was a street parade held on October 6 in La Trinidad followed by a program at the open gym attended by some 11,000 boy and girl scouts in the province.

Giving color and attraction to the parade were the PRO-COR band, the drum and lyre of Buyagan Elementary School, Balili Elementary School, Puguis Elementary School, Benguet Special Education Center and BSU band.

BSU President Rogelio Colting warmly welcomed the scouts to the university's campus and special livelihood programs.

Meanwhile, both BSP and Girl Scout of the Philippines council leaders officers reminded the scouts on scouting principles and programs like citizenship training, community leadership, values, character building, love of God and country and others. (PIA) [top]
