Education is the key to human and national development. This is the beacon
of light from the light house of inspiration in the distant horizon but this was the
drum beat out of the passion of the late Mayor Celso Sarenas, the father of the for-
mer Mayor of Pantukan JC Celso V. Sarenas, ME as he sought, deep in his heart,
ways to respond to help the needy and deserving, under served and under-skilled
youth in the Municipality. Sometime in the 80’s, there was an established com-
munity college which was known as Pantukan Community College, but it was
deactivated because of the peace and order condition in the locality.
In 1997, during the term of the late Mayor Jovito D. Derla, the Sangguniang
Bayan of Pantukan has been granted by the Board of Regents through its request
to the University of the Southcastern Philippines (USEP) an authority to open
a college as an External Studies Program of the University of the Southeastern
Philippines-Mabini Campus in addition to reviving the Pantukan Community
