One of the Eat Bulaga scholar Jaydee Niere Lucero topped the November 2018 Civil Engineer licensure exam, and he didn’t forget to thank the noontime show that helped him to afford a good education.
In his Facebook post, Lucero who studied at the University of the Philippines-Diliman posted his graduation photo with a lengthy caption addressed to the people who helped him to achieve his dreams.
“Sa Eat Bulaga, sa pagpapaaral ninyo sa akin (at sa aming mga EBEST scholars) for the past 9 years. Hindi ko marahil mararating ang tagumpay na ito kung hindi dahil sa inyo, thank you po!” Lucero said.
“Mabuhay ang mga bagong civil engineers ng bayan. Let us serve the country and the people!” the topnotcher added.
He also mentioned Phinma National Scholarship (PNS) Program, UP Diliman Institute of Civil Engineering and Review Innovations for helping him to reach the top spot.
Lucero also didn’t forget to thank his colleagues who helped him during the time of difficulties.
Back in 2009, in the celebration of its 30th anniversary, Eat Bulaga launched “Excellent Student Awards” or EBest Awards aimed to help the financially incapable elementary and high school students.
The awardees received full scholarship grants from Eat Bulaga and also monthly allowances and cash assistance.
Some scholars like Angelica Nieva from Bulacan is now working as an online English teacher.
