Tangub City recognizes 1,500 scholars

by Judith B. Tablan

Cagayan de Oro City (23 September) -- About 1,500 scholars of the city government were recognized during separate programs held at Sinanduloy Cultural Center at NMSC gymnasium recently.

City Mayor Atty. Philip T. Tan led the city officials in giving certificates to the scholars, who also came with their parents.

The students are enrolled at the Northwestern Mindanao State College of Science and Technology (NMSC) and the city-owned Gov. Alfonso D. Tan College (GADTC).

Former city mayor Jennifer Wee-Tan who was the brain behind the scholarship program gave her inspirational message.

Included in the program were: a testimony from one of the scholars who became successful in his chosen profession; and a parent who expressed his gratitude for the big help of the scholarship to his family.

Mayor Tan revealed that for the first semester of this school year, the city government has set aside approximately P4.5M for this program.

He further said that the students are appropriately called tuition grantees because the scholarship has certain stiffer or higher requirements.

The scholars or grantees are also obliged to abide by the following policies: 1) the scholarship is renewable every semester; 2) the beneficiary shall have no failing grade; 3) the beneficiary shall be ipso facto member of the youth empowerment: the solution (YES), a youth organization recognized by the city government of Tangub;

Further, 4) a city scholar who is a bona fide resident of the barangays of Tangub City shall render four hours of community service to the barangay where he/she resides; 6) the community service mentioned in the two preceding numbers shall be complied every semester and shall also be a requirement for scholarship renewal in the immediately preceding semester. For the purpose of city scholarship renewal, a certification from the barangay captain where the community services have been rendered shall be presented; 7) all city scholars shall participate in tree planting activities of the city. A certification from the office of the city mayor and barangay chairman for this community service shall also be issued for the purpose of the scholarship renewal;

Lastly, 8) non-compliance of any of the foregoing is a ground for disqualification from availing of the city scholarship program. (Tangub Information Office) [top]
