Atty. Nuevas T. Montes named UB President



Lawyer Nuevas Tirol-Montes officially assumed office as fourth president of the University of Bohol effective September 27, 2014. The announcement was made immediately after the members of the Board of Trustees for Fiscal Year 2014-2015 unanimously approved her appointment.

Prior to her assumption as full-fledged UB President, Atty. Montes was the vice president for administration and lately an acting president in lieu of the late Atty. Victoriano B. Tirol, Jr. who had passed away last March 21, 2014. An educator by profession , she served the Department of Education, Culture and Sports now Department of Education as Assistant Schools Division Superintendent and at the same time Resident Ombudsman of the Division of Bohol , Assistant Superintendent of the Division of Siquijor and Superintendent of the Division of Toledo City. After her stint in government service, she yielded to the incessant clamor for public service and became Vice Mayor of the City of Tagbilaran. As fate has its way, Atty. Montes distance herself from politics and continue to serve the Alma Mater she loved most, not knowing that the university maze will soon find a place on her hands. (labboncales)
