The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) entered into by the Campus Executive Officer of CSU-SM Dr. Narcitas B. Ouano and the principal of Namuac Academy Mrs. Marilyn Bayag on August 21, 2017 signalled the official tie-up of the two parties for an extension activity through the College of Business Entrepreneurship and Accountancy (CBEA).
“Salukag”, which means productive in English , the extension project of the CBEA under the KANIYOGAN Extension program of the campus, is an attempt of the college to strengthen the entrepreneurial skills and technical competencies of the coconut-based communities in Northwestern Cagayan.
In as much as the children of these coconut farmers enrolled at Namuac Academy (a private secondary school at Sanchez Mira) need the expertise of the faculty in the campus along this field, a seminar- training workshop along research writing, business proposal writing, project proposal writing and product development was extended to the clienteles in September 27- 30, 2017.
The trainers include Dr. Eleanor Cacacho, the Campus Extension Coordinator; Engr. Shirley Agcaoili, the Campus Research Coordinator; Mrs. Christie Melflor Aguirre, the CBEA College Dean; Ms. Mellruth Anne Cabutaje, CA College Research Coordinator; Ms. Lorna Ilustrisimo , CBEA College Extension Coordinator; Dr. Allan O. de la Cruz, CBEA College Research Coordinator; Mr. Rey Viloria and Mrs. Krisha Dorano, both CPA & CBEA faculty members .
“We are very thankful for CSUSanchez Mira’s generosity. Your coming to extend and share your expertise to us and to our students is timely,” said Mrs. Bayag . “I hoped that the newly established partnership would last”, she added.
During the proposal defense, critiquing of outputs, and final defense of these student-clienteles, Ms. Ilustrisimo and Ms. Cabutaje stood as panel members to improve the research studies and business proposals of these beneficiaries.
Meanwhile, Mr. Lander Agra, the adviser of the Senior High School students of NA also expressed his gratitude for the transfer of knowledge and information that the college extended to these learners, -that they could not have successfully accomplished one requirement for graduation of the Senior High School students if not because of the technical assistance handed in by these extensionists from the CBEA and the campus.
