Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos has lauded an Ilocona topnotcher of the Agriculture Licensure Examination.
Hazel Achuela, a Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program (4Ps) beneficiary, placed ninth in the board exams last November.
The Ilocos Norte provincial government is set to recognize Achuela in its annual Sirib Awards
Marcos said Achuela’s achievement is a pride of Ilocos Norte.
“Talaga namang kitang-kita ang kinasirib at kinatan-ok ng mga Ilocano na muling pinatunayan ni Hazel Achuela ng Mariano Marcos State University,” the Ilocos Norte politiko said.
“Indeed, high-quality education is offered at the lone and premier state university dito sa Ilocos Norte, ang MMSU. Lahat ay pwedeng mag-aral. Lahat, pwedeng mangarap. And now that we have free education, free tuition fees, nothing is impossible for poor yet deserving students,” she added.#
