4th district gets DHVTSU campus


    STO. TOMAS, Pampanga – Poor students from the southeast portion of Pampanga will benefit from the nearly-completed P30-million satellite campus of the Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University (DHVTSU) here.

    Gov. Lilia Pineda and DHVSTU President Enrique Baking on Monday presented to local and barangay officials of the province’s fourth district the DHVSTU satellite school in Barangay Moras De La Paz. 

    Its establishment was pushed by 4th District Board Member Nestor Tolentino who filed the resolution and ordinance in 2012 paving the way for its completion in time for the June 2013 opening of classes. 

    Baking expressed gratitude to Pineda, saying “no other governor had thought of the creation of a school in this part of Pampanga.” 

     ”This is unprecedented,” added Baking, who spoke for about 30 minutes. Pineda used at least P25 million for the building and P5 million for the improvement of the road leading to the school.

    Tolentino said the provincial government will also give P3 million annually to the DHVTSU-Sto. Tomas campus as requested by Baking.

    Baking said they will initially accept “250 to 300” students. The courses to be offered are information technology (IT), Bachelor of Science in Education and Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM), business administration and vocational technology.

    Sto. Tomas Mayor Joselito Naguit said “this is very good for my people.”

    Others who graced the presentation are Apalit Mayor Oscar Tetangco Jr., San Simon Mayor Leonora Wong, Minalin Mayor Arturo Naguit and Board Members Melchor Pingul, Fritzie David-Dizon and Ric Yabut.

    Baking said there are more than 15,000 students in their main campus in Bacolor and satellite campuses in Porac and Mexico towns.
