NOTF was represented by its president, Evelyn V. Arnaiz and general manager, Dr. Ruben Camarista, who also signed in the Deed of Donation as witnessed by NOTF officers and Board of Trustees.
The prime lot’s current market value is at P14,000 per square meter and Gov. Marañon is also giving them P1 Million to fund the NOTF operations.
Gov. Marañon said he always believed that education is the greatest social equalizer and that a student from a poor family has the capacity to improve their lives provided he’s given the right education.
He also urged them to develop English proficiency in every student to cope up with globalization. /Capitol News
The Provincial Government of Negros Occidental received an Automatic Weather Station (AWS) donated by the League of Provinces of the Philippines (LPP) in partnership with the Weather Philippines Foundation.
The AWS will be under the supervision of the Provincial Disaster Management Program Division who sent two personnel to undergo operation and installation training in Pasig City last week.
AWS is a meteorological weather monitoring instrument that has the capacity to capture atmospheric and meteorological data such as rainfall, wind speed and direction, humidity, and temperature.
Analysis using the AWS will be done every hour and will be posted online for easy access, hence, it will enhance the provincial government’s weather information system. /Capitol News
