Bing Leonardia wants to have a Bacolod City Elementary School
Believe it or not, the city lasted 80 years without a school named after itself.
Mayor Evelio “Bing” Leonardia has a novel idea for a new campus which is being completed in town. He wants to name it as the “Bacolod City Elementary School,” the first in the city’s long history.
Currently, the 36-classroom facility is called the ETCS 4.
“Right now, all public elementary schools in Bacolod are named either after the barangay, hero, or lot donor,” Leonardia said.
“We believe that it is high time to honor Bacolod, now on her 80th year as a city, with a public elementary school that proudly bears her name,” the mayor wrote to Education Secretary Leonor Briones.
What a milestone!
