Days before the scheduled activity, Provincial Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo on May 30, 2018, went to Guillermo A. Gimeno Elementary School (Former Titunod Elementary School) in Barangay Titunod, Municipality of Kolambugan to personally state her commitment in behalf of the Provincial Government in its own humble way in supporting all the programs and activities of the Department of Education in Lanao del Norte.
