Mayor Step distributes educational assistance to scholars

Nearly 350 scholars from 17 barangays were present during the educational assistance distribution last September 21, 2013 at Catbalogan I Central Elementary School. Said city scholars were from Barangays Poblacion 01 to 13, Socorro, Munoz, Guindapunan, and San Pablo.

Through the assistance of the City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO), Hon. Stephany Uy-Tan personally handed over the cash assistance among the scholars present during the distribution of educational assistance.

Her personal commitment to the importance of education in securing a better future echoes from her slogan “Kan Mayor Step Uy-Tan, Asenso han Pamilya Edukasyon an Solusyon”, aimed at helping families by putting a child to school. From the former administration’s coverage to only until high school students, Mayor Step has started expanded the scholarship coverage to include college students. Her commitment to help deserving students to attend school and in the future be able to help their own families.
