School apologizes for disallowing nursing graduate to march on stage

Talking to Manila Bulletin, Rosaldo said her mother is affected the most by the situation after seeing how her son was pulled out from the lineup of graduates slated to get on stage and tout their accomplishment

A nursing graduate went viral on social media after his university disallowed him from getting on stage.

Netizen Celene Rosaldo was more than furious at the Lorma Colleges La Union for not allowing her brother John Marcelino to get on stage during his graduation on June 23.

A video uploaded by Rosaldo gave viewers a glimpse of what happened.

“Yung graduate ka pero di ka pinaakyat ng stage para kunin diploma mo kasi di naconfirm payment mo sa grad fee.” she wrote.

Marcelino also texted her, saying: “di naman masakit.”

Marcelino’s family claimed that he had fulfilled the graduation fees. In another video, his mother is seen crying at what happened.

“My brother just graduated, but my mom cried coz the school did not allow him to get his diploma up the stage,” wrote Rosaldo.

Apparently, the school failed to “confirm” John’s payment, hence the debacle.

“He has already paid his grad fee the day before his grad, but the school didn’t confirm his payment. That’s the f*cked up part,” she added.

Talking to Manila Bulletin, Rosaldo said her mother is affected the most by the situation after seeing how her son was pulled out from the lineup of graduates slated to get on stage and tout their accomplishments.

“Ang pinakamasakit po dun ay ang itsura ng nanay ko po na kitang-kita niya na yung anak niya na pinull out sa line papuntang stage para i-receive sana ‘yung diploma,”

Netizens felt for the family.

The school also received negative comments online.
