Lising said that more services and scholarships were made available to residents because of diligent tax payers, saying that Barangay San Antonio now has 82 college scholars.

Aside from the monthly allowance, Lising said that Barangay San Antonio shoulders the first P25, 000 per semester of their scholars or P50, 000 every year.

The chairman said that he is eyeing to give incentives to their scholars with exemplary grades.
