Caloocan City Mayor Oscar Malapitan recently congratulated 23 certified public accountants, products of the University of Caloocan City, who passed the board examinations last year.
Joined by his son, First District Rep. Dale Gonzalo Malapitan, the mayor distributed cash rewards to the new accountants at City Hall.
The new accountants are Leslie Ann Ablen, Jennylyn Alteza, Arnel Apostol, Sweet Seil Aton, Erwin Joseph Borromeo, Ylaine Cabrera, Joan Capinig, Brandon Clavero, Christella Dela Torre, Gregor Junn Largo, Sarah Mae Leonoza, Jazelle Lizada, Abegail Madeja, Edward Joseph Maglinte, Jusmine Mendador, John Daryl Rosario, Frances Ann Rovillos, Joanne Santua, Sir Win Tambong, Ailene Tutor, Christopher Valiente, John Villa, and Monalyn Villaralvo.
Free tertiary education is among the flagship programs of the Malapitans. “We believe that providing the residents with free quality college education is the key to the city’s progress,” the mayor said.
Joining the new CPAs in the event were UCC officials led by its president, lawyer Rene Richard Salazar, vice president for administration Marilyn de Jesus, vice president for academic affairs Joel Feliciano, College of Business Accountancy dean Shirley Saragcon, accountancy department coordinator Ryan Alejo, and Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants adviser Ryan Sagum.
Salazar said the university’s guiding principle is “Better UCC, Better City.” UCC is known for generating hundreds of professional board passers yearly in licensure examinations for teachers, criminologists, psychologist, and psychometricians.
