Ormoc City — The Energy Development Corp. (EDC) last week awarded scholarships to 460 high school students and handed over miscellaneous school fees to 6,000 elementary school pupils in Ormoc and neighboring Kananga town.
Both projects are part of the Health, Education, Livelihood, and Environment program which EDC has implemented since 2005.
The high school scholars from Ormoc and Kananga received a stipend of P2,000 each.
The remaining half will be given at a later date to ensure that the scholars finish the school year.
For the miscellaneous fees for elementary school students, P716,925.00 was earmarked for this school year or P121 per student.
