STO. TOMAS, Pamp. -- More than 900 incoming college students are expected to benefit from the new satellite campus of the Don Honorio Ventura Technological State University (DHVTSU) in Barangay Moras this town.
This came as the rehabilitation of the old and abandoned buildings of the Department of Health (DOH), assigned to house the said DHVTSU campus, were completed.
It was learned that the Provincial Government spent some P17 million to ensure that the same will operate next school year.
Governor Lilia Pineda, along with Mayor Jun Tetangco and Board Member Fritzie Olga David-Dizon inspected on Tuesday the buildings that house at least 19 classrooms and administrative facilities.
DHVTSU Sto. Tomas campus is envisioned by the Provincial Government to provide more educational opportunities for indigent students from the neighboring towns of Apalit, San Simon, Macababe and even the City of San Fernando.
It will offer courses under the Ladderized Education Program and short-term courses duly registered under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (Tesda). (Herbert P. Mapiles)
