In an official communication dated September 12, 2019, Senator Joel Villanueva, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education confirmed the designation of Mr. Geoffrey Loyola as his representative in the Board of Regents of the Bataan Peninsula State University (BPSU).
As a member of the BPSU Board of Regents, Loyola shall exercise all the powers and duties under Rule V Section 8 of the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Memorandum Order No. 3 series of 2001, in addition to the general powers of administration granted to a member of the board of a corporation under Section 35 of the Revised Code of the Philippines.
However, the good senator communicated to CHED that he and his representatives will not be receiving honoraria for attending board meetings.
In his response, Mr. Geoffrey Loyola expressed his gratitude to the Senator for the trust, confidence and the rare opportunity to be of service to the premier university of the province, which incidentally is his alma mater, being a graduate of then Bataan National School of Arts and Trades (BNSAT), with the commitment to perform his responsibilities with diligence, sincerity and dedication within the bounds of law.
Loyola is likewise grateful for the endorsement of Governor Albert S. Garcia which is a manifestation of the governor’s trust and appreciation of the former’s work ethics, intellectual ability and sound judgment, to name a few.
Loyola started his career in public service in 2002 as a Web Programmer at the City Government of Balanga and steadily rose from the ranks. A Bachelor of Science in Computer Science graduate from the Eastwoods College of Advanced Studies he complemented this with courses from the University of Asia and the Pacific and Asian Institute of Management to name a few.
His long years of experience and exposure to public service coupled with the numerous learning interventions that he painstakingly achieved here and abroad played a significant role in honing his skills that he in turn applied in the different programs and projects of the Provincial Government of Bataan that he either spearheaded or played a major role in.
Towards the end of an exclusive interview of 1Bataan with the man of the hour who currently holds the position of Department Head at the Office of the Governor as Chief of Staff of Governor Garcia, who also heads the Provincial Management Information Systems Office, his reply to the question: With so many things on your plate right now, do you still have time to relax? Well, he still plays tennis and devotes quality time to his wife Gemma and sons Geo and Gabo.
