Nine DAR-Siquijor scholars finish college

piaSIQUIJOR, Oct. 3 (PIA)--At least nine scholars under the Program Agraryo Iskolars (PAI) of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) – Siquijor finished college recently.

They are  Glendie Paquera , who graduated magna cun laude and Ailyn Ibas, cum laude, and both with a degree of  Bachelor of Science in Education.

 Mary Jane B. Agan and Ryan Jessan D. Ponce completed the Bachelors degree of Science in Information Technology; Derbe Jane L. Laure, Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management; Quela A. Ontoy and Aljuncris A. Patay, Bachelor of Science in Business Administration; Rejoice B. Suan and Ma. Vaneza P. Trumata, Bachelor of Science in Tourism.

They all graduated from the Siquijor State College (SSC) in Larena, Siquijor.

The scholarship program gives college education to children and direct descendants of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program beneficiaries.

DAR Central Visayas headed by Director Stephen Leonidas commended all the graduates.

Through these years, the program has benefitted 197 scholars in Bohol, 45 in Cebu, 53 in Negros Oriental, and 31 in Siquijor.

Meanwhile, DAR region 7 has assured farmer beneficiaries that the government’s agrarian reform program will continue even if the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program extension with reforms (CARPer) law has already expired.

DAR-7 director Stephen Leonidas said the agrarian reform program is a constitutional provision that will continue to exist unless the Constitution is amended.

Leonidas said that Section 30 of the Republic Act 9700 or the CARPer law states that cases or proceedings that are pending upon the expiration of the law shall be allowed to proceed.

 “It is very clear, even after June 30, CARP will continue,” he said.

He added that Secretary Virgilio Delos Reyes even told them that the program will be tackled at the Congress particularly the extension of the issuance of notice of coverage.  (mbcn/rac/PIA7-Siquijor w/ reports from I.A.Abatayo)
