VP Leni named Outstanding Bicolano by University of Nueva Caceres
Outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo has bagged the Outstanding Bicolano Award from her law school alma mater the University of Nueva Caceres.
Robredo also graced the 74th Recognition Ceremonies of the institution.
“Sa kaniyang mensahe, nagbalik-tanaw si VP Leni sa paghubog ng UNC sa kaniya bilang abogado at lingkod-bayan. Pinasalamatan din niya ang UNC sa pakikipagbayanihan nito sa mga inisyatibo ng OVP at Angat Buhay, tulad na lang sa BAHAYanihan housing project na naging daan para sa Angat Buhay Villages sa Lupi, Sagñay at Calabanga,” said Robredo’s office.
“Malaking tulong ito para sa mga pamilyang lubos na naaapektuhan ng mga bagyo at kalamidad,” it added.
Robredo also asked UNCeanos to use their knowledge and skills to overcome the extraordinary challenges in these trying times.
“[Use] all you have learned for what is good, and true, and right. To lend your skills, your knowledge and expertise in the service of others. To uplift the lives of those most in need,” Robredo was quoted as saying.
