THE LONG WAIT IS OVER!
LOOK| A total of 617 ongoing Tertiary Education Subsidy (TES) grantees with their parents/guardians convened at the Audio-Visual Room (AVR) on April 3 for the Signing of Sharing Agreement and Disbursement of Allowances for 1st Semester A.Y. 2022-2023.
With the support of Mrs. Divina P. Arzadon, TES focal person, TES staff Mr. Willy M. Arzadon and Mrs. Krysteen Ivy V. Hernandez, together with Mrs. Florida E. Nativad, School Registrar, Ms. Hadaza Grace G. Nativad, OIC Treasurer, Mr. Nelson M. Agustin, Alumni Director, and Ms. Lovelyn M. Vera Cruz, the distribution of the TES allowances was conducted successfully.
The program started with a prayer led by Rev. Rosemarie D. Agonias followed by the opening message delivered by Engr. Josephine P. Jasmin, Vice President for Administration. She emphasized that students should value the grant the government is giving.
“Remember that with this TES, you have the chance to seize opportunities that will help improve your current status, so take your studies seriously, engage in learning sessions like seminars and trainings, be active in school activities so that you become a well-rounded student. Consider how you can make a positive impact to your fellow students, to the school and the community. Bear in mind that you will always have the capacity to give back, in any form and in any manner to your alma mater and to the society,” she stated.
Meanwhile, Ms. Bernadette C. Blanche, Campus Executive Officer (CEO) delivered the call of the Office of the President (OP), encouraging ACians to be members of the Alumni Cooperative.
“On behalf of our College President, Rev. Dr. Micah Ryan B. Ramel, I would like to encourage everyone to be part of our Alumni Cooperative. As TES grantees, this will be of great help for your future academic endeavors as none of us knows when will be the next disbursement. If you saved up for the future, you’ll have something to use in case of an emergency,” she said.
On the other hand, Mrs. Carolyn A. Amaranto, CPA and Vice President for Finance and Development delivered her closing remarks as she reminded the TES grantees to spend the money they have received wisely.
“Spend your money wisely. As beneficiaries, your obligation is to study hard, stay focused and spend the money wisely. Succeeding in life is as simple as being a good student. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Always prioritize your studies for your family and community. Work hard for a brighter future”, Amaranto reiterated.
Eventually, the disbursement successfully ended with a closing prayer led by Rev. Dr. Jaime R. Bolusan.
