stu­dents en­rolled in cour­ses B.S. in In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, B.S. in Ac­count­ing Tech­nol­ogy, B.S. in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion ma­jor in Fi­nan­cial Man­age­ment and Mar­ket­ing Man­age­ment, Bach­e­lor in El­e­men­tary Ed­u­ca­tion, and Bach­e­lor of Sec­ondary Ed­u­ca­tion ma­jor in English, Math and Bi­o­log­i­cal Sci­ence.

Hi­zon said that identifying new course of­fer­ings will greatly di­ver­sify the col­lege. She added that new course of­fer­ings should re­flect the needs of the lo­cal com­mu­nity as well as those of the busi­ness sec­tor.

“There should be cour­ses that re­spond to the needs of the lo­cal in­dus­tries. The City of San Fernando has a grow­ing com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial sec­tor. The man­power needed by these in­dus­tries should be ad­dressed by cour­ses of­fered at the City Col­lege of San Fernando,” Hi­zon said.

Hi­zon said that she will push and sup­port mea­sures for the establishment of in­sti­tu­tion­al­ized schol­ar­ships for stu­dents of the city. She added that in­sti­tu­tion­al­ized schol­ar­ships will en­able read­ily avail­able slots for ed­u­ca­tional schol­ar­ships for the poor and in­su­late the pro­gram from be­ing used in lo­cal pol­i­tics.

“We need more schol­ar­ship grants. The num­ber of stu­dents just keeps on getting big­ger each year. The availability of such grants will en­able more stu­dents to ac­cess opportunities for ed­u­ca­tion,” Hi­zon said.— Chris Navarro
