PMA Scholarship pushed in Mati

MATI CITY, DAVAO ORIENTALAbout 4,344 high school students, coming from 33 secondary schools from Davao Oriental and 44 school exhibitors from Davao Region, along with two Service Academies from Luzon, attended the two-day Provincial School Fair at SP Compound, Brgy. Dahican, Mati City.
Accordingly, the said school fair dubbed as “4th Davao Oriental School Fair”, hosted by Davao Oriental Vice-Governor Mayo Alamario, intends to provide a broad selection of schools for tertiary and vocational level to students without having them spend much to go to Davao City or farther places to inquire.
Almario also mentioned that the said fair may be replicated next year due to its success in encouraging senior high school students in the province in pursuing tertiary education, while providing the opportunity for the exhibitors to meet more than 4,000 probable enrollees and scholars.
Col. Rey Leonardo Guerrero, also a member of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class of 1984 and commander of 701st Infantry Brigade, facilitated the booth for PMA.
 “We support the noble Davao Oriental School Fair as we also wanted to extend in this province the 4-year scholarship program of PMA in building leaders with sure employment after they graduate”, Guerrero said.
“The fair is indeed a genius idea in encouraging our youth to pursue further education for their future.  Our Army units itself will not be able to visit all 33 high schools in this province in a very short span of time, but in partnership with the Government School Fair, thousands of students were informed on the military programs for scholarship and employment,” Guerrero added.
