In an early interview with a local radio station here, Brgy. Capt. Amora said the school will offer scholarship to more than 600 students in the city where each barangay is required to send scholars.
The Liga College also houses a dormitory for students and teachers who cannot afford to spend daily transportation expenses. Aside from this, Amora said, laboratories and canteen are also housed in the two-hectare lot.
The project is supported by the city government through Mayor Ferdinand Amante Jr. who approved the allocation of P2 million for its construction.
