We were mighty proud and happy when 24 LGUs were given recognition for their outstanding governance in education during last year’s 11th National Education Summit. We were witnesses to their journey to become excellent, dedicated education leaders. Thus, we would not miss the formal conferment of the Seal of Good Education Governance (SGEG) to the 5 winners from Mindanao which was held last April 23, 2018. Our Mindanao winners are Cagayan de Oro City in Misamis Oriental, Bongao and Simunul in Tawi-Tawi, and Upi and Datu Paglas in Maguidanao. Their Local Chief Executives were all present to receive the most coveted award in education, namely, CDO Mayor Oscar Moreno, Bongao Mayor Jimuel Que, Simunul Mayor Nazif Abdurahman, North Upi Mayor Ramon Piang and Datu Paglas Mayor Mohammad Paglas.
