ANGELES CITY – Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. is set to award Medals of Excellence to top-performing students in elementary and high school in both private and public schools here, for the second year of his term.
“This is in pursuit of elevating educational projects and recognizing outstanding students both in academic and extracurricular activities in the city, and continuing the legacy of my father, the late former Angeles City Mayor and Pampanga 1st District Representative Carmelo Lazatin,” Lazatin said.
“It is important that we recognize outstanding students who are top performers in both academics and extra-curricular because it serves as motivation for them and everyone else to continue valuing education,” he added.
The Angeles City Economic Development and Investment Promotions Office (ACEDIPO), headed by Irish Bonus-Llego, will send the endorsement letters to the city’s 45 private schools and 58 public schools for students who are qualified to receive the Medal of Excellence. The deadline of submission for the list of qualified students per school is on July 15, 2021.
