Rotary Club of Tagbilaran
October 22, 2014
Seeing him at a Rotary Wednesday for the first time some months back , wherein he impressed me with his youthful demeanor amidst middle-age chatter, I had the mistaken notion that he was an impeccably polished looking student-Rotaractor, unembellished by choreographed cosmopolitanism. When I was informed he is a bona fide member of the Rotary Club of Tagbilaran, his understated sartorial elegance which triumphed over superficial frenzy during formal functions at the Bohol Cultural Center, became my perceptive mantra ascribed to his personality.
His adept communication skills, both verbal and written, attest to an educational foundation of the highest order; thus, a well-deserved cum laude distinction for his baccalaureate degree in Political Science at Holy Name University, and a niche in the responsibility-conscious social whirl. Definitely, this guy is juxtaposed to the unrestrained and directionless misguided missiles of the hip-hop generation, the genre which many of his contemporaries affiliate themselves with.
More telegenic than Daniel Padilla; more photogenic than Zian Lim; discriminatingly cerebrally endowed compared to Gerald Anderson and his ilk; although not as terpsichorean-savvy as Enrique Gil’ nor golden voiced as Jed Madela, the bespectacled Clark Kent of the Rotary Club of Tagbilaran could be mistaken as Richard Gutierrez’ younger brother or Coco Martin’s twin, as the Tres Marias love to see him.
As an Administrative and Information Officer. Technical Specialist, a Generel Manager and COO, he was on top of the heap among achievers his age; and now as the incumbent Deputy Project Manager of the European Union-funded Realizing DReAMS, he personifies the iconic Boholano soaring high in the age of global integration.
Who? He is Metodio B. Maraguinot, Jr. Call him Ace Rotarian Jun.
