Las Piñas City Mayor Imelda “Mel” T. Aguilar feted the graduate of Dr. Filemon C. Aguilar Memorial College of Las Pinas (DFCAMCLP) - the city funded college- who placed No.3 among the topnotchers in the May 2017 certified public accountant (CPA) board passers.

Mayor Aguilar said Jason Granado Bugatan, a BS Accountancy graduate of DFCAMCLP is another pride of Las Piñas, obtaining 92.17% rating.

“We are honoured by the performance of Jason Bugatan who, like the rest of our scholars, are assured of our commitment to provide free and quality public college education through our Tuluy-Tuloy na Serbisyo program,” Mayor Mel said.

Bugatan is among the 13 new CPAs from DFCAMCLP who took the board exams last May 14, 2017. He is thankful to DFCAMCLP for his college education and for subsidizing part of his review school expenses.

Bugatan originally wanted to study engineering, but his parents could not send him to an engineering school due to financial difficulties. He is second to the youngest among seven siblings. His father works as a construction worker while his mother is a security guard.

Their family’s financial difficulties did not deter him to pursue a college degree. DFCAMCLP became his passport to fulfill his dream of obtaining a college education.

Edgardo Parungao, acting President of DFCAMCLP, said the performance of their accountancy graduates in the board examinations is the result of the local government’s full support to education of Las Piñas youths. He added that Bugatan is an inspiration to the rest of the city scholars who endeavour to be among the topnotchers.

The DFCAMCLP is one of the top performing schools among city funded colleges, and Bugatan has the highest rating among the board passers in Metro Manila and Luzon based schools of accountancy.  In the previous CPA board exams, DFCAMCLP produced graduates that placed No.7, and No. 10 among the board passers.

The DFCAMCLP offers free quality college education for those who would like to pursue accountancy and business courses. It also provides assistance to its graduates who wish to enrol in review schools before taking the board exams. (END)
