The activity entitled Government Express at the Mall, started on September 9 and finished on September 12 at SM City Activity Center. Western Visayas College of Science and Technology being a government institution was given the opportunity to put up an exhibit featuring courses offered by the College. Also featured in the exhibit were the Robots created by WVCST students.
In its commitment to serve, WVCST was invited to join the Phillipine Civil Service Commission in its celebration of its 113th anniversary with the theme Tatak Lingkod Bayani: Isabuhay, Ipagmalaki at Ipagbunyi.
Dr. Luis M. Sorolla, Jr., College President also graced the celebration on its opening program . In his speech he emphasized that government servants working for the Filipino people to the best of their ability is a great opportunity. They have to realize that the citizenry is the reason for their existence in government service. On the other hand, to the Filipino citizens this is also the chance for them to know that the government is working for them and that there are still government employees who are true to their commitment to serve the people. However , they also have to be aware of their rights, the welfare they can get from each government service and most of all to be able to avail of the services that are designed to help every Filipino.
One of the highlights of the Government Express at the Mall is to give honor awards and recognition to different government agencies/employees who in their own way demonstrated quality service to their clients like Dr. Dennis S. Mas, PhD. URP, Regional Vice President , PhilHealth VI, Iloilo City and Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog for the Lingkod Bayan Category and Maricel M. Bechayda of LGOO VI.
