Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan honors new lawyers from the UCC-College of Law
Caloocan Mayor Oca Malapitan said his efforts to push for a College of Law in the University of Caloocan City were worth it after it produced its first batch of lawyers.
Malapitan held a ceremony to fete the five new lawyers from UCC who came from its first batch of law graduates.
Malapitan thanked new lawyers Sheena Hazel Bellen, Roberto Damian, Krizia Espuerta Pia, Amiel Secretario, and Michael Villalon for their historic achievement that brought honor to the university.
“Sulit ang ating pagtatrabaho para magkaroon ng College of Law ang UCC. Noon pa man naniniwala ako na tunay na mahuhusay ang mga Batang Caloocan kaya nararapat sila para sa dekalidad na edukasyon,” he said.
The mayor, who also chairs the UCC Board of Regents, thanked the Caloocan taxpayers for allowing the implementation of projects for the university.
These include the construction of four campuses and new facilities, the increase in the salary of teachers, and the free tuition to university scholars.
