In line with Prestone’s 90th anniversary, Prestone presented the nine recipients of the ANAK NG MEKANIKO Scholarship Program at the Luxent Hotel in Quezon City.
Launched last year, the ANAK NG MEKANIKO Scholarship Program aims to give back to their loyal customers—the auto mechanics. The nationwide search aimed to provide a free college education to deserving children of local auto mechanics to help them achieve their dreams and ensure a brighter future.
The lucky scholars were selected through their submitted essays with the theme I am a Proud Anak ng Mekaniko. Aside from the full tuition to a four-year course of their choice in any STI Colleges campus nationwide, the scholarship grant also includes miscellaneous fee and a stipend.
There were 44 entries for the essay writing and was shortened down to 27 entries before choosing the nine scholars The nine ANAK NG MEKANIKO Scholars who were chosen were Jaime Kent Abesamis – Matina, Davao; Christian Diamante – Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental; Helen Joyce Maquincio – Dagami, Leyte; Jojo Peñada – Burauen, Leyte; Keith Bryan Perez – San Isidro, Antipolo; Edmajea Aguinaldo – Bangkal, Makati; Kristina Eñales – Bolton, Davao; Aulinda Buban – San Isidro, Antipolo; and Melver Masangkay – Bauan, Batangas.
Since the program was initiated, Prestone held pocket events in Antipolo, Makati, Quezon City, Tacloban, and Davao, to inform the auto mechanics about the scholarship grant and to also present ways on the proper application of Prestone products, which will be helpful in fixing their customers’ vehicles.
