The San Juan City local government gave due recognition to some of its student achievers as part of its efforts in improving the quality of education of its learners and providing them with financial aid and incentives to further inspire them in excelling in their fields of studies, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

In a ceremony held at the city hall, San Juan City Mayor Francis Zamora, together with San Juan City Rep. Bel Zamora and other city government officials, distributed certificates and cash incentives to 21 student achievers in the field of sports and mathematics.

San Juaneño students coming from both private and public schools and who are from grade school to college received cash ranging from P3,000 to P58,000.

Among those honored was UP Fighting Maroons point guard Terrence Fortea who was earlier cited by Zamora during the city’s morning assembly held on Monday.

“Natutuwa ako na napapanood ko si Terrence ngayon sa UAAP. Dati maliit pa lamang siya napapanood ko na siyang naglalaro dito sa ating San Juan Inter-Elementary basketball tournament at nakakitaan ko na talaga siya ng galing noon sa paglalaro ng sapagkat ng MVP siya noon. Ngayon, isa na siyang star player ng UP (I’m very happy to watch Terrence play at the UAAP (University Athletic Association of the Philippines). I have since been watching him play here at our San Juan Inter-Elementary basketball tournament where I already saw potential in him because he became the MVP during that time. Now, he is already one of the star players of UP),” Zamora said.

The mayor was a basketball player for the De La Salle Green Archers and was their team captain when they won their back-to-back UAAP championships in 1998-1999.

Rep. Zamora was also a fangirl of Fortea as she finished both her undergraduate and law degrees from the University of the Philippines in Diliman. The mayor also finished his Masters in Public Administration in UP Diliman as well.

During the ceremony, De La Salle University student athlete Alisha Claire Del Campo received the biggest incentive at P58,000 for her achievements as a player for the school’s football team and as a forward of the Philippine Women’s National Team – winning in the ASEAN Football Federation Women’s Championship and the Sea Games 2022 in Vietnam.

She was then followed by Ivan Travis Cu, a Grade 7 student of Xavier School who got a total of P50,000 for his achievements in the Asian Nations Cup Online Under 14 Open Chess Team Chamionship, Open Division, and the National Age Group Chess Championship Grand Finals in Bali Indonesia.

Eighteen of the 21 student achievers who received cash prizes were from San Juan City public schools who won international competitions in Sports, Math, and Science.

“I am very proud of the achievements of our public school students here in San Juan City. This is a good indication that our investments in our public schools are paying off and that our batang San Juaneños are receiving the best education in the country,” the local chief said.
