The City Government of Navotas has named 33 new scholars during the graduation ceremonies of its public schools.
Of the 33, 25 were incoming high school freshmen, four were incoming freshmen of Navotas Polytechnic College, two were incoming freshmen of the college or university of their choice, and two were teachers seeking high education.
“We want to give our youth opportunities to earn quality education, improve themselves, and reach their dreams,” Mayor John Rey Tiangco said.
“Education is one of the keys to success. We help improve the life of not just the scholar but his family as well,” he added.
Aside from academic scholarship, the city government also offers scholarships to students who excel in sports and in arts.
Since the NavotaAs Scholarship Program was established in 2011, the city government has sent to school 587 Navoteños. Of this number, 293 were academic scholars, 283 were athletic scholars, and 11 were art scholars.
