Seven scholars who recently graduated at Miyakonojo Higashi High School in Japan yesterday received a total of P996,000 educational assistance from the provincial government of Negros Occidental.

Negros Occ. Provincial Administrator Atty. Rayfrando Diaz led the turnover of the educational assistance to the parents of the scholars at the Provincial Capitol Building in Bacolod City.

Trishia Marie Lucio and Faustinne Mar Bulanon were given P218,000 each while Lorraine Tudillo, Curly Joyce Palacios, Reneleen Apatan, Mark Doriman and Helena Gasataya were given P112,000 each.

The educational assistance will be used to cover their other expenses like admission, entrance, registration and visa fees as well as the initial deposit to their boarding houses.

Lucio will study at the Asia Pacific University in Oita and will take up Asia Pacific Studies, while Bulanon, who will take up English Literature will enroll at Tsuru University. Tudillo, Palacios, Apatan, Doriman and Gasataya are to enter the Houshin School of Healthcare in Miyakonojo City and will take up two-year Vocational Careworker course.

These students will be working part time in Japan to support themselves.

The Miyakonojo Higashi Scholarship Program is one of the scholarship categories supervised by the Negros Occ. Scholarship Program Division.

The parents thanked Gov. Eugenio Jose Lacson for the scholarship granted to their children and for the educational assistance that will surely help them start their journey as college students in Japan.

A video presentation of the graduation and the scholars’ expression of gratitude in both English and Japanese was shown during the turnover ceremony.

Diaz said he was personally impressed and take pride at how the scholars performed in Japan, especially in adapting to the Japanese language and culture.

He assured the parents of the scholars that they are all in good hands with the great partnership of the provincial government and Miyakonojo Higashi High School, and that Gov. Lacson is giving 100 percent support to the scholarship program.

Diaz also said that the scholars have a promising future after graduation, and only imagination is the limit as to how bright their future will be.*
