The distribution of vouchers to 550 recipients highlighted the inauguration by the President of the Quezonian Livelihood and Learning Center (QLLC) and the graduation of this year's batch of 1,009 student trainees who completed their respective courses in the Center.
The PGMA-TWSP vouchers are for trainings or courses in slaughtering operations, consumer electronics servicing, computer hardware servicing, front office, medical transcription, call center agents, heavy equipment operations, household servicing, food and beverage servicing and shielded metal arc welding.
The President, who was assisted by Quezon Gov. Rafael Nantes, Quezon 2nd District Rep. Proceso Alcala, QLLCI Chairman Conrado Escudero and TESDA Deputy Diretor General Teodoro Gatchalian, handed over the vouchers to Zoraida Amper, superintendent of the Quezon National Agricultural School, in behalf of would-be scholars.
The President was then ushered into the QLLC where she was given a brief tour of the Center's facilities that include the F&B service, Household Service, High Speed Sewing, Computer, Cosmetology and Reflexology rooms.
This was followed by the President's unveiling of a mural depicting Jesus' Multiplication of the Loaves. The mural was designed by painter Vicente Fario on the request of the Daughters of St. Francis whose missionary works with the Center focus on values formation and inspired the artworks.
Through a tie-up with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) Provincial Office in Quezon, the Quezon National Agricultural School (QNAS) and the office of Quezon 2nd District Rep. Proceso Alcala, the QLLC, Inc. was formed in October 2007 to provide livelihood assistance to the people. (PIA-MMIO

WHAT’S UP, DAWG?
David Cook into the holiday spirit with a reindeer-inspired Pluto on Friday in the Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The 25-year-old American Idol champ recorded a segment for
the “Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade”, putting his
rocker spin on a holiday classic, “Have Yourself A Merry Little
Christmas”. After he was done, he took questions from the
audience, and played peek-a-boo with some kids who were in the first
row (those are the pics with him holding up the guitar). The Disney
Christmas Day Parade will air nationwide @ 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. ET on
Christmas Day, Dec. 25 on ABC.
Check out the video of David singing “HYAMLC” from last week’s 2008 Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Rockefeller Center.
