|APSCU-Metro Dagupan City Prexy Rex Lor|
DAGUPAN CITY – The president of the Association of Private Schools, Colleges, & Universities (Metro-Dagupan Chapter) hailed the almost three thousand jam packed crowd who attended the “Pera Mo Palaguin Mo (increase your money) program” graced by Francisco Colayco and company here. Mr. Rex Lor said the invitation for Colayco as resource person was an innovative project approved by the leadership of APSCU to increase the knowledge of the people here how to handle their finances. “This is actually an effort of different schools and universities coming together. This is nice because we have brought something new to Dagupan City, and something lasting to teach people how to fish and not to get fish,” he stressed. “Pera Mo Palaguin Mo!” is the 10 Commandments of Colayco how to effectively empower Filipinos with the knowledge, skills and tools to be wealthy.
Colayco is a renowned best selling author on finances and personal finance and investing expert in the country. Lor explained that the idea of bringing Colayco was a concerted effort of the wisdom of the officers of APSCU particularly Mrs. Candy Torio Blancaflor of Edna’s School as relevant to the financial management of professional, students, and man of the streets.
The APSCU leadership is composed of President Lor (Escuela de Nuestra Senora de La Salette); Vice President for Basic Education Dr. Orlando Imbuido (St. Blaise Christian School); , Vice President for Higher Education Dr. Efren Abulencia (University of Luzon); ), Secretary Mae Belle Ebuen-Pamiloza (University of Pangasinan); ), Treasurer Dr.Beng Reyes, CPA (Lyceum Northwestern University; , Auditor Mr. Greg Baldemor; PRO Dr, Rebecca Kathleen Vidal; Business Manager 1 Rev.
