The Parañaque scholars and their parents thanked the city administration for seeing them through to college. They also expressed their appreciation to Coun. Benjo Bernabe who served as big bother and adviser.
“I exhort our students to follow the example set by the Parañaque scholars in putting education as a priority in their lives. Doing this, they can look forward to a better future, better lives for themselves and their families. We will then expect that upon their graduation, they too will contribute to the development of the city and country.” Mayor Jun Bernabe said.
