CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- More than 1,000 Fernandino college scholars who are beneficiaries of the Educational Scholarship Assistance Program (ESAP) received cash grants on November 13, 2019 at the Heroes Hall.

Mayor Edwin Santiago led the ceremonial distribution of grants to scholars coming from the capital city’s 35 barangays.

The cash grants are categorized based on students’ general average of grades.

During his speech, Santiago lauded the sacrifices and efforts of the scholars and encouraged them to always aim for excellence as this will lead them to a brighter future.

“I always say na aim for excellence. Why? Kapag gusto natin na tayo ay laging panalo o laging nangunguna ang ibig sabihin nasa tamang landas tayo, alam natin kung ano ang ating gusto. Dito na papasok yung magiging maginhawa at maayos ang inyong buhay,” Santiago said.

He vowed that the local government will continue its programs on education as “no one will be left behind in the City of San Fernando.”

“Walang maiiwan sa Syudad San Fernando, at ang sandata upang hindi ka maiwan sa buhay ay ang edukasyon. Kaya naman mag-aral kayong mabuti upang masuklian ninyo ang mga sakripisyo ng inyong mga magulang, makahanap ng disenteng trabaho at, higit sa lahat, para kayo naman ang magbigay ng serbisyo o tulong sa mga susunod na henerasyon upang sila ay makapag-aral,” he ended.
