THE STUDENT Organizations Coordinating Council (SOCC) has selected five Thomasians to serve as vice presidents (VP) this academic year.

Fourth year Accountancy student Justin Arrojado was appointed VP for audit and logistics. Jao Dela Fuente, a second-year student from the College of Business Administration is VP for marketing, while Third-year College of Fine Arts and Design student, Carl Castro is the VP for corporate communications, fifth-year Engineering student Rona Ortega is the VP for service assurance, while Jonathan Rosales, a fourth- year Medical Technology student, is the VP for organizational affairs.

SOCC scouted for officers from the different faculties and colleges through an online campaign that started last June 12.

Nearly 50 applicants went through a three-level screening process.

SOCC president Danisse Odina said VPs were needed to distribute equally and accordingly.

Other SOCC officers are JR Delos Santos of UNESCO, executive president; Jean Galvez of Becarios de Santo Tomas, corporate secretary; and JP Gozun Treasurer, of the UST Junior Marketing Association, treasurer. The SOCC also elected a new board of directors comprised of elected representatives from faculties and colleges.

However, the new VPs are still unofficial without the approval of the Office for Student Affairs (OSA). The SOCC submitted its final list of appointed officers to OSA last June 27

SOCC is the governing body that supervises all activities,” Odiña said. Dayanara T. Cudal
