CHED R02 sponsors education of honest Vizcayana OFW's children

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (15 June) -- The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) in Cagayan Valley has sponsored the education of the two children of Overseas Filipino Worker Mildred Perez Bunde who stumbled on a P2.1 million cash and checks from a garbage and returned the same to its owner in Hongkong.

Delia Cancino, CHED Scholarship Coordinator for Congressional Affairs said they have approved the granting of a study grant program for Mildred's daughter Norabel, 16 and Jefferson, 17 for the school year 2009 to 2010 inorder to pursue their hotel and restaurant management course at the Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) in Bambang campus.

Mildred's children will also receive P1,500.00 allowance each and P1,000.00 tuition fee under the grant provided they maintain their required academic performance.

Cancino personally handed the certificates to Mildred's children during the regular flag raising ceremony at the provincial capitol grounds.

The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) through provincial district officer Pacifico Moralit also handed to the Bunde family the award for Mildred's extraordinary show of honesty in Hongkong which was given by the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA).

The program was attended by Representative Carlos Padilla, governor Luisa Cuaresma, vice governor Jose Gambito, members of the provincial board, mayors Jamie Cuaresma of Bambang town, Mayor Moises Amokla of Ambaguio and barangay officials of the province. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
