Atty. Bido leads Regional Training Center Central Luzon Graduation Rites
“You are now ready to face the real world where your technical knowledge and skills will be your firearm and your actions and decision, your bullets.”
Thus said Atty. Andrew A. Bido, Regional Director of TESDA-III, as he led the commencement exercises of more than 200 graduates of the Regional Training Center Central Luzon-Guiguinto (RTCCL-Guiguinto) at the Atis Hall of La Consolacion University in Malolos on June 22.
The completion of their respective courses was confirmed by TESDA-Bulacan Provincial Director Grace Corazon Castillo who exhorted the graduates to “…stay focused on building their careers, utilize their skills to become productive, and continue quest in improving their competencies.”
RD Bido shared to the graduates Napoleon Hill’s five “signboards” to success, as: have a definite aim in life; self-confidence or belief in oneself; performing more work than what is paid for; and persistence.
“Once you step out of this hall, I urge you to thank God Almighty for what you have achieved today, and dream, always. A person who always dream, hopes; and he who hopes acquires a purpose in life; and he who has a purpose in life will be able to realize the true meaning of life as a worthy citizen of this country,” he said.
Themed “Reaching Out and Making a Difference Thru Tech-Voc Skills and Excellence”, the event marked the fourth time RTCCL-Guiguinto has held a graduation ceremony for the last two years and the third time that the graduates donned the traditional toga. It culminates the Trainees Week activities that are being held twice a year in coordination with the officer and members of the Trainees Council.
The number of graduates who participated was dominated by Automotive Servicing (101), followed by Welding (50), Electrical Installation (43), Dressmaking (29), Domestic Refrigeration (22), and Machining (17). At least 67 Training for Work Scholarship graduates also joined the activity.
