Makati Mayor Abby Binay shared the various accomplishments of the University of Makati (UMak) as it marks its 50th founding anniversary.

In her March 7 column for Pilipino Star Ngayon, Binay said several UMak graduates have become topnotchers in licensure exams in recent months.

“Ang UMak ang naging kaganapan ng mithiin ng aking ama, si dating Vice President Jojo Binay, na mabigyan ang lahat, kasama ang kabataan mula sa mahihirap na pamilya, ng pagkakataong makapagtapos sa kolehiyo,” she said.

To give poor but deserving students a chance to finish their studies, Binay said Makati has expanded its scholarship program to include graduates of private schools in the city.

“Sinisiguro nating may sapat na oportunidad para makapagtapos sila ng pag-aaral nang sila ay magtagumpay at maging kabahagi sa pagpapaunlad ng ating bansa,” she said.
