CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – “Governor Delta assures you of his commitment to continue extending scholarship to the youth of Pampanga. We will not tire of being of assistance to you to finish your courses, for ultimately this will redound not only to the upliftment of your state of life but the development of our beloved Pampanga.”

Thus, spoke 2nd District Board Member Mylyn Pineda-Cayabyab of Gov. Dennis “Delta” Pineda’s “deep concern” for the education of the youth of the province as she led the release of the financial assistance to 979 students from different towns of the second district from Monday up to Wednesday.

The distribution is part of the Educational Finance Assistance Program for college students. The college students enrolled in different universities received P3,000 each during the distributions, which were also attended by 2nd District Board Member Fritzie David-Dizon and Guagua Vice Mayor Sajid Khan Eusoof.

The group, led by Pineda-Cayabyab, made the rounds on Monday in Floridablanca, Sasmuan and Lubao. They also met with scholars in Guagua, Santa Rita and Porac on Wednesday.

Pineda-Cayabyab said the province continues to invest in education to help develop a skilled and educated human resource for the province.

In the past nine years, before the term of Gov. Dennis Pineda, the provincial government invested P1.2 billion for education.

From that investment, additional classrooms and public-school buildings are now being used by students in public schools, while thousands of senior high school and college students are regularly receiving educational assistance from the provincial government. MPC-IG
