94 from Barangay Mercedes and 65 from Barangay Maulong each received brand new bags, notebooks, paper pads and a uniform allowance of P1,000.00 and will receive a monthly allowance P200.00 on the succeeding months.

City Councilors Stephany Uy-Tan, Maximo “Max” Pescos, and Jovito “Vito” Redaja assisted the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) during the said activity that wrapped-up the final batch of turn-overs for this year’s scholarship Program of Mayor Tekwa.

“Ha imo edukasyon, an pag-asenso han pamilya ikaw an paglaum.”

The slogan of the Scholarship Program of Mayor Tekwa describes the importance of education towards upliftment from poverty and other social issues faced by families and communities. In helping one scholar at a time, Mayor Tekwa believes that education can really be the solution to society’s crippling problems.
