“My message for the SABM Community is that we ask and thank them for their continuous coordination. Though we, too, are students just like them, we are doing what we can to help (Carlos Blanco, School of Accountancy and Business Management Governor).”
Students shouted with glee, but braced themselves for the devastating jeepney line subsequent to the 1 o’clock afternoon suspension after super typhoon Lawin escalated to signal no. 3 in Benguet, October 19.
The school administration worked hand-in-hand on the students’ evacuation and the strict observation of the jeep line to prevent the act of line-cutting (pagsingit). The SABM SSC officers assisted to monitor the surveillance of the line.
Blanco acknowledged that some students were able to cut in line but says he and his co-officers are doing their best. “We focused on checking the conditions at the front of the line for us to check if jeepneys are available for the students,” he said.
“So far, concerning the rainy season, we have no particular project or activity in motion to address it and how it affects the students. However, we are flexible to assist the students with their concerns if they forward them to us,” he added.
We, too, are students just like them, we are doing what we can to help.
