Hon. Atty. Melchor Rey K. Sadain, Councilor, 1st District of Zamboanga City, officially turned over a P500,000.00 worth Multipurpose Student Center to the College of Nursing on Tuesday, November 26.
“The welfare of students should always be our cause,” said WMSU President Dr. Milabel Enriquez-Ho as she formally received the key to the building from Atty. Sadain, stating how grateful the University is to the Councilor and stressing how vital the construction of a Student Center is in earning points for accreditation (in which the College of Nursing is currently on Level III).
According to Dr. Gloria G. Florendo, Director for Special Programs and Projects of the University, it was in 2011 when Atty. Sadain allocated the budget for constructing the said edifice from his Countryside Development Fund (CDF). Atty. Sadain mentioned that his core objective in turning over the building is to provide convenience to the Nursing students of WMSU.
Atty. Sadain then led the ribbon-cutting, assisted by Dr. Ho with the presence of Vice Presidents Dr. Ma. Carla A. Ochotorena (Academic Affairs) and Dr. Roberto B. Torres (Research, Development and Extension); Dr. Florendo, Prof. Leila D. Benito (Dean, College of Nursing) and other directors and deans of the different colleges in the University.
