On 27 April 2018, Friday, the U.P. Vanguard, Inc. will hold the 18th National Commander’s Cup at the Forest Hills Golf & Country Club in Antipolo City. Registration starts at 6:00 AM and tee off is at 8:00 AM shotgun start. This golf tournament is held in honor of the incumbent UPVI National Commander, Vgd. Guido Alfredo Delgado, and past National Commanders of our beloved organization.

Vgd. Delgado graduated in UPLB ROTC in 1979 where he also finished Cum Laude in Agricultural Business on the same year. He went on to tackle poverty at its roots by helping communities put up small and medium businesses in Mindanao through his work in development banking and microfinance. It was at this time, in 1992, that he received the Ten Outstanding Young Men Award (TOYM) presented by the Junior Chamber International (JCI) of the Philippines. This led him to serve in greater capacity as head of the National Power Commission in 1994 -1998. It was during his term that improvement in the agency’s internal organization was implemented and with that, the entire power situation in the country, through various power infrastructure programs. These days, Vgd. Delgado advises the power and energy sectors in developing renewable energy products. Vgd. “Guido” is also proudly giving back to his ROTC Alma Mater by leading the men and women of the UP Vanguard Incorporated as its current National Commander.
