VG Delta to Macabebe youth: ‘You are my priority’

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

He bared this in 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, Cong. 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, Fourth District Rep. Juan Pablo ‘Rimpy’ 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 Cong. said.

For her part, Mayor Balgan thanked the Provincial Government led by Gov. Lilia ‘Nanay’ Pineda and Vice Gov. 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 Gov. Pineda reminded the beneficiaries to always honor their studies, as this is the key for 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 Atty. Jun Canlas and Rosve Henson, Macabebe Association of Barangay Captains (ABC) 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
