Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto visited the homes of the city’s top students in elementary and senior high school to personally congratulate them and give their respective awards.
In a video posted on Sotto’s Youtube channel last July 3, the mayor can be seen handing over the diplomas and medals to Hannah Escalona and Jahzmine, who are both Pasig City scholars.
Escalona graduated as Pasig City’s highest public elementary student while Zonio ranked first in her batch in senior high school.
“Meet Hannah & Jahzmine,” Sotto wrote on his Facebook page.
“Hannah got the highest grades out of all elementary graduates this school year. Si Jahz naman sa lahat ng senior high. Pareho silang Pasig City scholar,” he added.
According to the same post, both students received their diploma, sablay, medals, gift certificates, and cash incentives they deserved.
“Nang dahil sa pandemya, hindi nakapag martsa ang mga nakapagtapos ngayong 2020. Pero sinigurado ng LGU na matatanggap pa rin nila ang kanilang mga diploma’t sablay, at medalya at cash incentive sa mga honors,” Sotto said.
The local government of Pasig made sure that graduating students will still receive their medals and diploma despite all the challenges in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic.
They also promised to send the awards of other Pasig City graduates through delivery.
Jhazmine Ariene Sonio took to social media to share her experience about getting a surprise visit from Mayor Vico.
“Hindi ko talaga alam if deserve ko ‘to. Sinadya pa ako ni Mayor Vico kahit busy siya para lang sabihin na ako raw may pinakamataas na average sa buong Pasig sa SHS,” she said on Facebook.
“Sobrang thank you Lord!” Sonio added.
