Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia on Saturday, Oct. 16, urged students to value their education as this will be their ticket to achieve a better future.

Leonardia made the remarks during the turnover of educational assistance to 160 college students residing in Barangay Mandalagan.

The financial aid, the release of which was facilitated by the Sangguniang Kabataan of Mandalagan led by its chair Mary Joy Galleto, was sourced from the barangay funds, a press release from the Bacolod Information Office sad.

Under the SK-led program, each student-recipient received P2,000.

Another batch will get similar assistance in January next year, said Galleto, who joined Leonardia and Barangay Captain Arturo Parreño during the turnover rites Saturday.

Leonardia said that education is one of the top priorities of his administration, which paved the way for the establishment in 1997 and the eventual expansion of the Bacolod City College.

“I believe what we need in life are two things: ability and opportunity. We will try our best to give you opportunities, but the abilities should come from you. If you focus on your education, chances are, you will succeed and will become higher and bigger. That’s why, we are investing in education,” the mayor said.*
