OPOL, MISAMIS ORIENTAL — After another flag turnover at Northern Mindanao’s police headquarters, the Maging Magiting Flag Campaign went to Opol, Misamis Oriental, August 9, to give over 500 flags to the province’s public schools.
Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) President and General Manager Ronald Mascariñas graced the ceremony at Opol National Secondary Technical School. He joined partners Ayala Foundation Senior Director for Corporate Communications Cel Amores, Department of Education Undersecretary Lonisito Umali, and National Historical Commission Head of Heraldry Teddy Atienza.
In his speech, Mascariñas stressed that teachers have a crucial role in nation-building.
“You are important because you are the ones who inspire the youth to love the country,” he said.
He also explained why BAVI/Chooks-to-Go is supporting national athletes, saying that they are a “source of inspiration for the youth and every Filipino.”
Today’s flag turnover ceremony welcomed more than 250 Misamis Oriental school principals, including Schools Division Superintendent Randolph Tortola.
The Maging Magiting Flag Campaign aims to distribute 6,000 flags to police precincts and public schools nationwide this year.
This is part of Chooks-to-Go/BAVI’s advocacy of loving our country through sheer fulfillment of one’s duty, and even through sports.
Previously the Maging Magiting Campaign went to Batangas, Bulacan, Bacolod, Iloilo, Davao, Butuan, Cagayan de Oro, Taguig, and Quezon City. More than 5,000 flags have so far been donated.
