Community Service Seminar Held For Parents, Scholars [ Thursday, 29th of October 2015 | 2 years ago ]
These scholars are beneficiaries of the City Government’s Educational Scholarship Assistance Program that aims to assist poor but deserving students to finish their college education.
In his speech, Mayor Edwin D. Santiago said that they were from the city’s 35 barangays, as he emphasized the need to train not only students but their parents to be actively involved in government.
“There is no other way to attain a better life but to have quality education, and as scholars, you must help the city achieve greater heights. For parents, the upbringing of your children will ensure their future.”
“The prudent use of funds made it possible for the city to allocate necessary fund for the huge number of educational scholars,” he said.
The mayor added that “apart from the semestral ESAP awarding, the city has also cascaded its social services to the barangays by launching a weekly program that covers medical and dental services, PhilHealth card distribution, livelihood program loan granting, among other services.”
“I believe that education is the solution to have a better future. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford it. This is why we put education and employment as our top priority,” Mayor Santiago said.
Also present in the program held at the Bren Z. Guiao convention center were Congressman Oscar S. Rodriguez, Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, City Councilors Nelson Lingat, Noel Tulabut, Harvey Quiwa, and Angelica Hizon.
