THE Department of Education (DepEd) conferred to Tarlac Governor Susan Yap the Regional Gawad Katig Award in a ceremony held on December 19 at the Hacienda Gracia Resort and Hotel in Lubao, Pampanga.
The Gawad Katig (Katuwang sa Tgaumpay para sa Isang hanGaring de Kalidad an Edukasyon) is in appreciation of Gov. Yap’s unwavering dedication and relevant support as an education partner in the realization of DepEd’s MATATAG agenda.
It is aimed to recognize the extraordinary acts, support and commitment of the DepEd’s Region III LGU and non-governmental organization partners and to give appreciation to all schools who exemplify their partnership and collaboration with the stakeholders to address learning resource needs of public schools.
Some of the most notable projects of Gov. Yap under her administration’s “Edukasyon Muna” program in support to quality education are her scholarship programs, learning kits distribution, school building constructions, internet installation to far-flung areas of the province, to name just a few.—PIO
