Apalit, Pampanga – Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, together with Apalit Mayor Jun Tetangco and Don Honorio Ventura State University (DHVSU) President Dr. Enrique Baking, forged an agreement on the realization of DHVSU Apalit Campus.

The signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) was witnessed by Vice Mayor Peter Nucom, Arayat Mayor Emmanuel “Bon” Alejandrino, Board Member Pol Balingit, and ex-officio Board Member Renato “Gabby” Mutuc, Liga ng mga Barangay Pampanga Chapter president, at San Juan Covered Court here.

Governor Pineda stressed in a speech that education is the best gift that a child could ever receive from his parents.

“Last summer, Mayor Jun and I dreamt of bringing DHVSU here. But now, here it is,” he said.

The governor committed P25-million for the initial construction of building in the said campus.

Prior to this, he also pledged to allot another P25-million for the realization of DHVSU in the town of Candaba.

Mayor Tetangco disclosed that he and his wife, Jennifer Tetangco, donated their personally-owned land covering twelve thousand seventy four (12,074) square meters to DHVSU for the establishment of the DHVSU campus here.

“No matter how wide the land is, if DHVSU did not approve it, our dream school would not materialize,” Tetangco said. “I was just dreaming for a high school then, but when I told Governor Pineda about my dream of having a university here, he immediately agreed with me and started taking actions,” he added.

Baking, for his part, said that with the extensive efforts of the governor, local government units (LGUs), and DHVSU, a dream is now turning into reality.

“Without the sacrifice of Governor Delta, Mayor Jun, and other officials, DHVSU Apalit will not be possible,” he said.

Initial courses that are expected to be offered in the said campus include BS Engineering; BS Architecture; BS Business Administration, majors in Marketing, Economics, and Entrepreneurship; BS Education, BE Education, Real Estate Management, and Logistics.

Meanwhile, Baking said that DHVSU Apalit Campus can accommodate no more than one thousand students, and is expected to operate in June, 2020.#
