 VILLASIS- Three schools here were awarded with scholarship funds amounting to P504,784  by businessman-philanthropist Rosendo So, chair of the Abono Partylist group.

The awarding was held at the Tombod Integrated School last March 21.

The beneficiaries are Bacag West Elementary School (P100,335), Lapaz Elementary School (P94,089.00) with its Day Care (P35,360.00), and Tombod Integrated School (P275,000.00).

The scholarship funds, So said, are to defray the contributions of the school pupils and students such as anti-TB, Boy and Girl Scout fees, etc., and for payment of bills of the schools’ electricity.

During the occasion, Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos, as a special guest, was welcomed by Vice Mayor Jesus Franco A. Sison Jr., former Mayor Libradita G. Abrenica who represented Mayor Nonato S. Abrenica, Councilor Centenielo Ramon R. Costales, Tombod Barangay Council led by Punong Barangay Mamerto O. Bulatao Jr., Lapaz Barangay Council led by Punong Barangay Susan Ogana, Zone I Poblacion Barangay Council led by Punong Barangay Alex Sison, Villasis District II Division Supervisor Belen Bautista and the teaching staff of the school-beneficiaries.

In a short program, Vice Mayor Sison thanked So for his support to the pupils and students of the schools and also the presence of Governor Marcos.

Abrenica likewise extended her thanks and gratitude to So as a perennial donor of scholarship funds to the recipient-schools. She also thanked Marcos for visiting the school.

Marcos, speaking in Ilocano dialect, lauded Engr. So for the scholarship grants, which she said are of great help to parents and the schools.

“You are very lucky to have Engr. So here who provided you with scholarship funds. I value education for my constituents in Ilocos Norte by providing them too with scholarship funds and even shuttle buses to be used in going to their schools,” the governor said.

School heads Analiza S. Mones of Tombod Integrated School, Evelyn D. Mones of Bacag West Elementary School, and Pedro M. Macaban of Lapaz Elementary School thanked Engr. So for the granting of scholarship funds to their pupils and their schools.

They also praised Marcos for gracing the said event.
