ALS AMBASSADOR It was just another testing day at the Ireneo Santiago Elementary School in Gen. Santos City on the morning of February 4, 2007, when the Champ Manny Pacquiao surfaced among the crowd of hopeful test takers as one of the walk-ins. He was not able to take previous year’s test because came late. This time he made sure to be among the earliest to come. MANNY PAQUIAO Pasig City (22 February) -- Riding high from his recent victory against Mexican boxer Erik "El Terrible" Morales, people's champ Manny Pacquiao scored what can be considered as a "One-Two Knock-out Punch" when he succeeded in passing the Accreditation and Equivalency Test (A&E) for high school, Department of Education (DepEd) Secretary Jesli A. Lapus said today in a special press conference at the DepEd Central Office in Pasig City. As expected, people milled around him during the registration. He took the test as any usual test taker did, and finished it in four hours and a half. Manny Pacquiao was one of the 11,736 test takers in the whole of Mindanao. Pacquiao took the national test last February 4 at the Ireneo Santiago National High School in his hometown of General Santos City together with his brother, Bobby. Both have dropped out of high school because of extreme poverty. But that didn't stop Pacman from going back to complete his studies. And like many of his victories in the boxing ring, Manny successfully passed the A&E exam. Secretary Jesli Lapus signing the certificate of Manny Paquiao as an A&E Passer of the Secondary Level The People’s Champ poring over the test questions as he takes the ALS A&E Test inside a testing center in Gen. Santos MANNY PAQUIAO SCORES ANOTHER "KNOCK-OUT" MANNY PAQUIAO TRIES A&E TEST In the press conference, the DepEd Secretary Jesli Lapus declared Manny Pacquiao as the Ambassador for the Alternative Learning System and People's Champ for Education, citing his courage and determination in continuing to pursue his education as worth emulating. "He serves as an inspiration to the youth, especially those who were unable to push through with their studies due to difficult and unfortunate situations," Lapus added. "And we would like to congratulate him on his latest achievement."
