MALAYBALAY CITY (29 September 2020) A third year BA Philosophy student of Bukidnon State University – Main Campus has assumed the post as the university’s student regent.
BukSU president Dr. Oscar B. Cabańelez announced this on September 16, 2020 during the President’s Time in the university’s official radio program, the “BukSU Updates”.
Dr. Cabańelez named and welcomed Mr. Lawrence David S. Baylosis as the acting Supreme Student Council president, who will represent BukSU’s thousands of students in the Board of Regents today, September 28, 2020.
Former student regent Joseph Gelacio told OP-IPS Mr. Baylosis took the helm by rule of succession. In the meantime, he said, that due to the implementation of the no in-person classes, the USG finds it difficult in holding an election for the current school year.
Mr. Baylosis served SSC Senator of the previous administration where he chaired the Committee on Clubs and Organizations.
His succession took effect on September 4, 2020 through the Joint Resolution No. 02, Series of 2020 wherein the Supreme Student Council consulted with other members of the University Student Government (USG) on the rule of succession for the officers of the next academic year.
Former SSC President Mr. Joseph L. Gelacio formally introduced Mr. Baylosis to the university president on September 10, 2020. Earlier, Mr. Gelacio introduced Mr. Baylosis to the new OSS Dean, Dr. Lorenzo B. Dinlayan III, when the former presented the USG accomplishments and updates on September 4, 2020.
The dean, however, is keen on holding an election as it is mandated in the Constitution of the Supreme Student Council. (Ms. Lailanie S. Acola/Office of Student Services for OP-Information and Publication Service)
