AKO BICOL Rep. Rodel M. Batocabe graced the event of Southern Luzon Technological College Foundation, Inc. (SLTCFI) during its celebration of Linggo ng Wika with the theme “Filipino: Wika ng Kaunlaran” on Thursday, August 11, 2016. SLTCF President Rose Quinto-Rey personally invited Rep. Batocabe to grant the request of the students to have him as the Guest of Honor and Speaker during the activity.
In a message, Rep. Batocabe said “The Filipino language has always been our identity, aside from being our basic medium of communication, as it is our language that depicts our distinct culture and genuine understanding”. “It is commendable that we find time to honor our native language and celebrate its importance in expressing our thoughts to our fellow men, and our identity across the world”, he added.
Scholarship Grants and Educational Assistance were also presented during the activity being two of the flagship programs of AKO BICOL Party List for education.
This is another step towards our vision of creating Access to Quality, Affordable, and Well-rounded Education for all!
