Vico Sotto is being recognized by his alma mater for his breakthroughs in local politics and public service.

The millennial mayor of Pasig City has been named as the commencement speaker of the Ateneo de Manila University Class of 2021. The 32-year-old finished his AB Political Science degree in 2011 and Master in Public Management in 2018 from the school along Katipunan Avenue in Quezon City.

“We hope that our students will be inspired by Mayor Sotto’s example of honor, integrity, and tireless service to the nation,” Dr. Maria Luz C. Vilches, Vice President for the Loyola Schools, said in a memo to announce his selection.

Apart from his intellect and fame, the Ateneo chose him for the job after he was named by the United States Department of State as one of the International Anti-Corruption Champions of the world.

The graduation ceremony will be held on October 24. Time to write a speech!
