In the same event, LtGen Cartujano administered the Induction of Class Officers of NSSP Class 5. In his speech, he emphasized that in order to solve the problems of the country, “knowledge has to be updated and challenged to widen the depth of your understanding of concepts from different perspectives. It is through learning that we are allowed to see concepts and issues through various lenses. Once each of you has a deeper understanding of these, it is the only time we will be more powerful as we all work together and contribute to policy-making for the betterment of our country.”
