Not even guns and terrorists would stop students from going back to school!
Chairperson of the National Youth Commission Aiza Seguerra took part in the ceremonial opening program of the Mindanao State University System, amid the firefight and war that ensued in Marawi over the past months.
The “Balik Eskwela” program , which took place Tuesday, August 22, marked the welcoming of students from all over the region.
Vice Governor Mamintal “Bombit” Adiong Jr. also delivered a speech during the program, calling the university a gem.
“Dalawa po ang kayamanan ng Lanao del Sur, ang Lake Lanao at ang Mindanao State University… di natin papayagan mawala ito”, he told his audience.
Welcome back to school and welcome back to Marawi!
