Graduating student John Marcelino Rosaldo of Lorma Colleges in La Union went viral on social media recently.
It was found out that he was not able to take the stage to receive his diploma at the end of the nursing course. John Marcelino’s sister Celene Rosaldo allegedly issued a complaint about what happened. In her TikTok video, the brother was shown to have expressed his attitude about leaving the queue when they were supposed to go up on stage to receive the diploma.
According to PEP, it was held on June 23. Celene’s post had a caption: “You are a graduate but you were not promoted to get your diploma because you did not confirm payment of the grad fee.”
According to the Bandera report, it was said that a day before graduation, John Marcelino was able to pay his graduation fees, but it was not confirmed immediately, and that’s the reason why he did not go on stage.
“Ang pinaka-masakit po dun ay yung hitsura ng nanay ko po na kitang-kita niya na yung anak niya na pinull out sa line papuntang stage upang i-receive sana yung diploma,” ayon kay Celene sa panayam sa kanya ng Manila Bulletin.
