NCF Senior Scouts Outfit, 2009 Most Outstanding Youth Organization

This article was culled from the official website of Naga College Foundation posted on October 27, 2009.

It was June of this year when the NCF Senior Scouts Outfit formed MASK or the Mata Ayaw Sa Kalat Project. This was their official entry to the Raul S. Roco Youth Achievement Awards. The said project was inspired by the late Sen. Raul S. Roco whose ideals, vision and advocacies include the protection of the environment. The NCF Senior Scouts involved Barangay Carolina in Naga City for their mission to clean-up the Inarihan Stream. Various promotions were conducted, which included a room-to-room campaign within the Naga College Foundation; followed by a “Poster Making Project” involving the public schools in Barangay Carolina. The posters were used as signages along the riverside, reminding the community to keep the Inarihan Stream clean.

It was on October 26, 2009 when their efforts paid off. The NCF Senior Scouts Outfit was granted First Prize in the 2009 Raul S. Roco Youth Achievement Awards. Beaming with pride, the prestigious award was received by Mr. Benjamin P. Villanueva (NCF Chairman of the Board); Mr. Ramon H. Nuiz (Basic Education Department Principal); Mr. Al-Noel L. Asis (Senior Scout Outfit Adviser); Ms. Marivic V. Balance (Director for NCF Center for Social Responsibility); Ms. Alita P. Ballarda; Sctr. Danilo C. Roquid Jr. and the whole Senior Scouts Outfit. The award included a distinctive trophy as well as a P50, 000 cash prize to support the group’s future projects.

Mrs. Sonia M. Roco, wife of the late Sen. Raul Roco, expressed hope that the NCF Senior Scouts Outfit will pursue and replicate their project to the other Barangays. She added that the MASK is considered as an ideal project, which should be followed by fellow ‘scouts’ all over the Philippines in order to promote a clean environment.

Also present during the awarding were the children of Mrs. Roco and the late Sen. Raul S. Roco (Atty. Robbie Pierre M. Roco and Ms. Pia Roco); Naga City Mayor Jesse M. Robredo; Mr. Leon Flores (President of Aksyon Kabataan); Mr. J. Antonio Amparado; former Naga City Mayor Sulpicio S. Roco (who is also the brother of the late Sen. Raul Roco); and Ms. Corazon Alma De Leon (Philippine National Red Cross Secretary General).

October 26 coincides with the Birth Anniversary of Sen. Raul S. Roco, which is also being celebrated by the City of Naga as RAUL S. ROCO DAY.
