Soriano aims to keep giving back after election as new volley NSA Board member
MANILA, Philippines — The Beach Volleyball Republic hailed the appointment of one of its founders Charo Soriano as a Board Member of the newly-established national sports association for volleyball in the country.
Soriano, the former Ateneo star, was the youngest member elected in the Philippine National Volleyball Federation, Inc. (PNVFI) Board.
“Admittedly, the road that paved way toward a united volleyball community had many pitfalls, but today is different – today is all about hope, unity, and commitment,” said Soriano in a statement.
The 35-year-old Soriano was proclaimed by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) during the elections held Monday at East Ocean Seafood Restaurant in Parañaque City.
“Everything that has made an impact in my life, from personal to professional experiences, has come from getting involved,” said Soriano.
“It is truly such an honor to be part of the federation and to materialize our responsibility to make the dreams of the Filipino volleyball athletes come true. At the end of the day, it is my personal calling and mission to give back to the sport that taught me so much about life on and off the court.”
The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) is expected to recognize the PNVFI as the country’s legitimate volleyball NSA during its virtual World Congress on Feb. 5-7.
