BALANGA CITY, Bataan – Vice Governor Cris Garcia representing Gov. Abet Garcia led on Tuesday here the distribution of financial assistance to 432 board reviewers, the 5th batch, making the total number of beneficiaries of the program that started this year to 1,338 reviewers.
“When you pass the board exam, it will open more opportunities”, the vice governor encouraged reviewers.
It will be remembered that the Sangguniang Panlalawigan through her leadership unanimously passed last year a resolution giving financial assistance to “poor and deserving” graduates who are residents of the province for review of board and bar examination.
Iskolar ng Bataan coordinator Ramon Canas said that reviewers who were Iskolar ng Bataan beneficiaries got P5,000.00 financial assistance, and those who were not received P3,000.00.
He added that they are now readying the 6th batch composed of 642 beneficiaries to receive their financial assistance.
The vice governor is known for putting premium on education.
The late Governor Tet Garcia and then 2nd district congressman currently Gov. Garcia hatched in 2005 the Iskolar ng Bataan program benefitting ever since thousands of college students from the province.
