Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo administers the oath of office to the elected officers of the City Government’s scholars from 10 baranagys belonging to Division 1 so they could officially help in the monitoring of the performance or respond to the needs of their fellow beneficiaries.
The City’s Educational Assistance Program was launched in 2017, which Mayor Remollo expanded from 214 college students in that year to 464 recipients/scholars for 2020-2021 who are entitled to receive P 12, 000 assistance at P6, 000 per semester.
Councilors Karissa Tolentino and Michael Bandal, SK President Renz Macion, Local Youth Development Officer Tigie James Tanilon and the Punong Barangays of the scholars were present in a show of sincere support.
City Social and Development Officer Lilibeth Filipinas said that Division 1 has 160 scholars coming from Barangays Motong, Balugo, Bantayan, Piapi, Mangnao, Candau-ay, Camanjac, Talay, Poblacion 1 and Poblacion 8.
The 20 other barangays are divided into 2 divisions that will have their own sets of officers.
