Manny Pacquiao plans to finish college

Manila, Philippines –

Fast hands, quick wits, that’s Manny. Admitting that his glory in boxing will not last forever, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao acknowledged the value of education and plans to finish college. It’s a welcome news to Education Secretary Jesli Lapus as it will strengthen DepEd’s Alternative Learning System. The program which aims to encourage out of school children and adults to go back to school will gain more attention having Manny as a spokesman.

Kudos Manny! May you continue inspiring the Filipino nation both inside and outside the ring.
