Pampanga guv lauds 1st Aeta graduate from UP

PAMPANGA Governor Lilia Pineda lauded on Monday Norman King, the first Aeta tribe member to graduate from the University of the Philippines (UP)-Manila, during the flag ceremony held at the Capitol Grounds in the City of San Fernando.

Pineda said that King serves as an inspiration to the Aeta community who want to pursue their education in college.

Wearing his tribe’s traditional attire, the “bahag,” at the university’s 108th commencement exercises, King received his diploma of Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Science.

King acknowledged his family and the members of the Aeta community as his inspiration in finishing his studies.

He also expressed his interest to continue his study and his plans to enter law school.

“Kung bibigyan po ako ng pagkakataon ay nais ko pong ipagpatuloy ang aking pag-aaral at kumuha ng abogasya,” he said.

King added that he has no plans of leaving the country and he intends to focus on helping the Aeta community. (PR)
