House Speaker Lord Allan Velasco has hailed an 80-year-old Marinduqueño who has completed junior high.

“Isang malugod na pagbati kay Tatay Teofilo “Philo” Lacorte Bonites Sr. ng Gasan, Marinduque na sa edad na 80 ay nagtapos sa Junior High School sa ilalim ng programang Alternative Learning System ng Department of Education,” he said.

Velasco said that the story of Tatay Philo highlights that age is irrelevant for those who really want to finish education.

“Ang kwento ni Tatay Philo ay isa lamang patunay kung gaano kahalaga ang edukasyon at kailanman ay hindi hadlang ang edad sa nagnanais na makapag-aral,” said the Speaker.

“Para sa kanya, hindi pa huli ang lahat upang makamit ang pangarap na makapagtapos ng pag-aaral,” he added.

Velasco continued: “Congratulations, Tatay Philo! Marinduqueños are so proud of you!”
