LC accountant given scholarship grant in India

The government of India has given a scholarship grant on “Accounting and Management in Government Sector” to Laoag City Accountant Edgar Pascual, slated from October 24 to December 2, 2005.

According to Pascual, it was Laoag City Mayor Michael V. Fariñas who recommended him in response to a letter from the National Economic Development Authority (Neda) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) regarding the said scholarship grant.

After he was recommended, Pascual underwent a screening at the DILG regional office, and a final interview at the Neda main office, which he both passed.

The scholarship grant would be paid for by the Indian government along with all expenses Pascual would incur during the scholarship period.

After he was given the grant, Pascual expressed his gratitude to Fariñas for the trust that was given to him upon recommendation, and later for allowing him to travel abroad for more than a month.

Pascual said the grant would not only serve him but would be translated into better service for city residents.

“This grant is not only for myself but I will offer this to the city government of Laoag,” Pascual said.

Meanwhile, Fariñas congratulated Pascual for the scholarship grant as he said he believes whatever the accountant would learn would be applied to his functions as the city government’s accountant.

The mayor also told other City Hall employees not to disregard these kinds of scholarships since only a select few are given the opportunity to avail of them.

With Pascual’s impending trip to India, Fariñas has designated Ms Nora Questin, city accountant IV as officer-in-charge for the duration.

In a memorandum issued by the mayor, Questin was directed to perform the duties inherent to the position but without additional compensation.

Other City Hall employees who were given scholarship grants are Sangguniang Panlungsod secretary Enrico Aurelio and city social welfare officer III Mylene Pascual.
