Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna has become a doctor twice over.

Already a medical doctor, Lacuna is also now a Doctor of Public Administration.

The Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila conferred on Lacuna the degree of Doctor of Public Administration, honoris causa, during its 54th commencement exercises today.

The mayor served as keynote speaker during the ceremony, the first to be held in person since the pandemic, according to the Manila public information office.

Lacuna thanked the university for the degree.

“Salamat sa pagpapahalaga n’yo sa dalawampu’t walong taon ko sa serbisyo publiko,” she said.

“Ito ay magsisilbing inspirasyon at malaking hamon upang lalo ko pang pagbutihin ang uri ng ating paglilingkod sa ating minamahal na lungsod at para sa lahat ng ating mga kapwa Manilenyo,” she added.

She urged the new graduated to keep on striving to reach their dreams, while also reminding them to keep themselves safe amid the pandemic.

She also said that despite the challenges brought by the COVID-19 crisis, the PLM continues to provide quality education to its students.
