130 Student leaders of Catanduanes State University assembled for the first PAGTAIS, an in-house training of student leaders held on July 29 to 31 from 8AM to 5PM at Catanduanes State University Auditorium facilitated by the TRAILERS of the Philippine Trailers Society- Youth Leaders League trained under YOUTHLEAD PHILIPPINES INC.; Trailer Jaquelyn R. Geromo, FCSC President, Trailer James Paulo Able, College of Engineering Student Body Organization President, Trailer Renz Mickenly Tanael,FCSC Vice President and Mr. John Cyrus B. Francis, Staffer..  Wave 1 of PAGTAIS is anchored to the theme “Engage and Empower: Touching Leaders Through the Mission of Transformation wherein student leaders were trained to be vision enablers, system designers, people’s weaver and active catalyst for societal development.

 This 3-day event is focused on youth transformation, raising awareness, interest, and desire among youth leaders to become transformational and enable them to exhibit leadership skills.

 The in-house training also became an avenue for them to be exposed to basic protocols, events and office management, effective communication, student welfare development and management, minutes and business letter writing and conflict management which were conducted by CSU’s finest Dr. Maria Tugano, Vice President for Academic Affairs, Attorney Greg Sarmiento Jr, Chief Administrative Officer, and  faculty members of College of Education and College of Arts and Sciences.

According to Dr. Nancy Magtagnob, Director of the Office of Student Services, “PAGTAIS comes from the Bikol root word tais which literally means to sharpen, to hone, to whet, to file or to grind. Tais is also suggestive of meanings like to improve, to make better, to be more effective or more efficient, to be more astute or shrewd and other similar ideas.

“The 2nd PAGTAIS is scheduled this October as part of CSU’s 48th Foundation Anniversary which will focus on climate change and other environmental issues”, Dr. Morales said.
