Meanwhile Governor Corazon N. Malanyaon congratulates the winners of different categories particularly the Schools from Davao Oriental. She is also delighted for the Schools in Boston, Cateel and Baganga that earned awards respectively for their exemplary achievement because, she said, that this is a proof that these 3 Municipalities, which were the hardest hit of Typhoon Pablo in 2012 are now able to bounce back from the staggering devastation of the incident.

On the part of the Provincial LGU having these exemplary schools in its midst, Governor Malanyaon defined it as a strong and bright future for its constituents since a well-educated populace also means capacitated and empowered people as partners for local government.

“There can be no progress if its constituency remains shrouded in ignorance and illiteracy,” she said.

Governor Malanyaon reminisce the extremities of weather that ravaged the 3 municipalities in Davao Oriental. She said that physical properties may be lost, but education cannot be snatched away from its holder even by super typhoons.

“With learned and educated people, ordeals in any form could become stepping stones for growth and improvement, thus, supporting the educational institutions is for the good and advantage of Local Government Units,” Governor Malanyaon said as she motivates school awardees to continually serve as models for others in striving to surmount obstacles in any form.
