ALABEL, Sarangani (February 2, 2021) – Frank Jeay Montebon (right), 18, from Barangay Malalag, Maitum gets his allowance from the Paaral Para Sa Sarangan (PPSS) scholarship program during their orientation on February 1 at the Capitol gym. Montebon who is currently a first-year college student of Mindanao State University-General Santos City is taking up Bachelor of Secondary Education major in Filipino and is among the 90 newly-qualified scholars of the PPSS for the school year 2020-2021. Montebon expressed his gratitude to the provincial local government unit and all the provincial officials of Sarangani especially Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon and the rest of the legislative body for the continued support to the Sarangan youth who are financially deprived yet willing to pursue their studies. “Talagang malaking tulong itong PPSS sa akin lalo na ngayon na pandemic,” Montebon said. He added that the scholarship grant is a big help for those like him whose family does not have a stable source of income. “Masaya ako to finally receive our allowance kasi yung mga need na mga gamit sa online class is mabibili ko na, maglalaan din po ako for my boarding house at yung matitira ay para sa pangkain ng aking pamilya,” he said. Montebon was also a former Sarangani Junior Official (SJO). (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
