The inauguration and ribbon cutting ceremony was led by Mayor Evelio Leonardia, who chairs the board of trustees, Councilor Renecito Novero who heads the city council’s education committee, and College administrator, Ma. Johanna Ann Bayoneta.
The ceremony was also graced by various stake holders, members of the BOT and Grupo Progreso.

The BCC site development includes the construction of the activity center that can cater to 1,000 people and a fully airconditioned gym.
