BALANGA CITY, Bataan- Gov Abet S Garcia assured yesterday the thousands of provincial government scholars of  his adminstration’s commitment to continue funding scholarship program to enable the poor but deserving students study in college.

Governor Garcia’s assurance can heave the parents and students a sigh of relief following the abolition of the much-hated Priority Development Assistance Fund or PDAF in congress.

He assured that although the PDAF had been abolished “we are still going to sponsor the sholarship of our students in Bataan, so they can continue their college studies.”

The bachelor governor pointed out, however,  that the supposed fund intended for the Second semester in 2013 was not given anymore  due to the sudden abolition of the PDAF.

In other provinces, their scholarship programs for their poor students had been also totally abolished since they can no longer fund it.

Big bulk of funds for the scholars were coming from PDAF.

The scholarsip program in Bataan, however, will still continue after the governor, Rep Enrique “Tet” Garcia, 2nd district, and Mayor Joet S Garcia of Balanga city find ways to sustain the educational fund of the poor students.

With the millions of funds allocated to the sholarship programs of the Garcia, thousands of students have been able to graduate from colleges, making Bataan the envy of others.

The Garcias   believe that only proper education  can give the young students a better future.

Recently,  a meeting for the University Town of the Peninsula Foundation, Inc. (UTPF) 2nd Annual General Assembly was held at Milky Way Café, Makati City to discuss the sholarship program of the city.

Also attended the meeting were UTPF Chairman Roberto Juanchito Dispo, among others
