MANILA, Philippines — Sen. Bong Go, an adopted son of Pangasinan, was invited as speaker during a leaders’ summit at the Panpacific University in Urdaneta, Pangasinan on Thursday.

The event brought together educators and students to discuss the importance of leadership and service among the youth as well as the role of education in achieving sustainable development goals.

Go, known for his advocacy for education and youth development, highlighted the importance of investing in education as a cornerstone for national development.

“Masaya po akong nandito ngayon, nakakausap kayo. Kayong mga kabataan ang kinabukasan ng bayang ito. Malay n’yo, ikaw o kayo diyan ang magiging senador din po ng bayang ito,” Go said as he expressed his admiration for the institution’s commitment to quality education.

He urged the youth to embrace the values of hard work, perseverance and integrity as they navigate their paths toward their future careers.

“When I think of service, I think of how important education is. It builds our nation – giving people the tools and values to contribute to their communities and our country,” he said.

Go spoke of his efforts to boost the educational sector, citing the proposed measures and laws he sponsored and co-authored, which aim to provide students and educators more opportunities and support.
