Delta tells Ma­cabebe youth: ‘You are my pri­or­ity’

Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORY! -

MA­CABEBE – Vice-Gover­nor Den­nis “Delta” Pineda vowed to 646 Grade 12 learn­ers of this town that they will be the “pri­or­ity schol­ars” of the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment once they con­tinue their stud­ies to col­lege.

He bared this dur­ing the re­cent dis­tri­bu­tion of ed­u­ca­tional fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance here, amount­ing to P1.6 mil­lion.

“As a par­ent, I know how hard it is to send your sons and daugh­ters to school, es­pe­cially when you have noth­ing,” he added.

Ac­cord­ing to the vice-gover­nor, now that the free tu­ition fee has been im­ple­mented, stu­dents should grab the op­por­tu­nity to fin­ish their stud­ies.

“You can ex­pect from me, the Capi­tol, Con­gress­man [ Juan Pablo] Rimpy Bondoc and from your lo­cal gov­ern­ment unit (LGU) led by Mayor An­nette Bal­gan, that our hands will guide you un­til you reach your dreams,” he fur­thered.

Mean­while, Bondoc rem­i­nisced his school days with the schol­ars.

“As I see youth reach­ing for their dreams, and fol­low­ing their pas­sion, it is like I’m also in their po­si­tion. They are happy, and I’m hap­pier,” the con­gress­man said.

For her part, Bal­gan thanked the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment led by Gover­nor Lilia “Nanay” Pineda and Vice-Gover­nor Pineda for con­tin­u­ously sup­port­ing the youth of Ma­cabebe.

She re­it­er­ated to the schol­ars that the LGU will also lend a help­ing hand to them, es­pe­cially in their ed­u­ca­tional needs.

“For sure, all ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams of the mu­nic­i­pal­ity will bring you one step closer to reach your goals in life,” she told the stu­dents.

As the pro­gram ended, Vice-Gover­nor Pineda re­minded the ben­e­fi­cia­ries to al­ways fo­cus on their stud­ies, as this is the key to a suc­cess­ful life and to give back to their par­ents and to the com­mu­nity.

Mean­while, as­sist­ing the vice-gover­nor in the ed­u­ca­tional as­sis­tance dis­tri­bu­tion were fourth district board mem­bers Pol Balin­git and Nel­son Calara, third district board mem­bers Ani­anas Can­las, Jr. and Rosve Henson, Ma­cabebe As­so­ci­a­tion of Barangay Cap­tains Pres­i­dent Edgar “Gang” Flo­res, other mem­bers of the mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil, Pro­vin­cial Li­brary Head Bessie Mak­a­bali, pro­vin­cial trea­surer and Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion staff.— Leah Isidro De Fi­esta/ Pam­panga PIO
