Still, three days of University Student Council (USC) meetings weren’t enough to resolve the establishments and the leaderships of all the USC’s committees. Another special session was held last Friday, April 11, 2008, to tackle the remaining committees.
The session started promptly at around six in the evening and ended just before midnight. Four committees’ leaderships decided: CSWCD Rep. Carmela Lagang was chosen to head the Community Rights & Welfare Committee; CL Rep. Sophia San Luis was chosen to chair the Students Legal Aid & Action Committee; Educ Rep. Acee Abulencia was chosen to lead the Gender Committee; and AIT Rep. Chorva David was chosen to head the Academic Concerns Committee.
There is still a handful of committees left to deliberate in the next few days. There was actually another meeting the next day, Saturday, but I wasn’t able to attend that one because of a family affair. The meeting saw another committee establishment and leadership resolved. CHE Rep. Rinno Camilit was elected chair of the Environment Committee.
