QUALITY EDUCATION MUST BE AFFORDED TO EACH AND EVERYONE, said Ormoc City Mayor Lucy Torres Gomez (left photo) as she delivered the State of Education of Ormoc City during the DepEd Ormoc Division Education Summit this week at the ZT Park in Brgy. Dayhagan, this city.

Mayor Lucy mentioned in her speech all the featured projects and achievements achieved by LGU-Ormoc and of DepEd-Ormoc during the administration of then Mayor, now Congressman Richard I. Gomez, saying, “Inheriting this bedrock in education, the City Mayor, together with the education sector, will strive, not only to sustain, but more so, nurture and grow the basic education sector.”

She added, “May every Ormocanon be a part of that village that would raise our young Ormocanons, for it is by far, the most important responsibility for all of us in our community.”
