PORMAL na nilagdaan nina Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) Chairman William I. Ramirez at Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chairman Prospero De Vera III ang Memorandum of Agreement sa pagpapaunlad ng Tertiary School Sports noong Miyerkoles sa CHED Auditorium, Diliman, Quezon City.
“I am so happy for this new forged partnership with CHED. They have been a brother to the PSC because as a small agency, we cannot be effective and succeed without the help of other agencies,” pahayag ni Ramirez sa kanyang opening remarks.
Sinabi rin ni Ramirez na naniniwala siya na ang partnership ay lilikha ng mas maraming competitive at excellent coaches at athletes sa collegiate level.
“This gives us the missing link in providing a professional development in continuous sports education and will cater more to the educational aspect of our teachers in coaching.”
“We welcome this memorandum of agreement as it will allow us to join forces with the PSC in joint projects that we can initiate. We commit the support of CHED in all the undertakings on higher education sports development and wellness,” sabi naman ni De Vera.
Kabilang sa mga layunin ng MOA ang mapalawak ang engagement at pagtutulungan ng dalawang partido sa pagbuo ng unified tertiary school sports development program upang masiguro na ang Sports Development Plans ng HEIs ay naka-align sa national agenda at alinsunod sa pinakamataas na international standards.
Kasama ng sports agency chief sina PSC Commissioner Celia Kiram at Chief of Staff at PSI National Training Director Marc Velasco. Para sa panig ng CHED, si De Vera ay sinamahan nina CHED Office of the Executive Director OIC Atty. Ryan Estevez at Office of the Deputy Executive Director OIC Atty. Lily Milla. CLYDE MARIANO
