POSTED: Wednesday, December 4th, 2013
CALAPAN CITY – Justifying itself of the need to have its own funded college and proving itself to be at par with the other higher educational institutions, the city government of Calapan proudly announced November 27 that the City College of Calapan registered a high passing rate for the second batch of its graduated students for Licensure Examination for Teachers (LET).
According to the overseers of the said city college, which is under the administration of the city government of Calapan led by Mayor Arnan C. Panaligan, this year’s batch of their students who graduated the degree of Bachelor in Elementary Education (BEEd), major in Special Education, got a combined average of 91.67% in the said examination
This is another milestone for this young educational institution which, can be noted, got a 100% passing rate for its first batch of graduates who took the same licensure examination last year.
Prior to the 2013 examination, the students underwent a rigid preparation and review with the support of its whole college community led by Calapan City College Administrator Rene M. Colocar, former Director for Instruction Marilyn E. Manigbas and BEED-Sped Program Head Nelma L. Viaña.
And because of his firm belief on education as a good and needed investment, Mayor Panaligan reportedly fully supported the LET examinees by funding an amount of P100,000 for the review and other expenses incurred by the students in taking the said test last September 29.
Panaligan stated he believes the success of the students will bring them to a more decent or comfortable lives and with this, they (students) will contribute in the upliftment of their fellow students as well as share in the socio-economic development of this city. (By JUANCHO R. MAHUSAY)
