BORONGAN CITY, June 14, 2017–A new Schools Division Superintendent for the Borongan City division was installed yesterday in simple rites led by DepEd Regional Director, Dr. Ramir Uytico.
Dr. Gorgonio Diaz Jr. CESO V, replaced Judith Boco, who now heads the Eastern Samar division. This is part of a region wide reassignments of top education officials.
“For the good of the organization, we need to move our people. I need to give our superintendents and assistant superintendents opportunities to grow. Transferring them will give them the chance to learn new things and face new challenges”, said Dr. Uytico in his message.
He called on the officials and teachers of the city division to support their new chief and “help Dr. Diaz so that his stay here will be fruitful”.
He told Diaz “not to make any step that would ruin the city division”.

Prior to this new assignment, he was the division superintendent of Samar province.
He thanked the regional office for the confidence given him.
