ABS-CBN actor Donny Pangilinan has finished his college education, one of his greatest dreams.
The milestone was also extra special for Donnie because two of his siblings, Ella and Hannah Pangilinan, also finished their college degrees at the same time with him.
On Sunday night, October 9, 2022, Donny posted on Instagram their photo where they are seen wearing their black togas .
Donny received his diploma with Bachelor of Ministry in Christian Leadership degree at the College for Global Deployment.
The joint graduation ceremony was officiated by the siblings' professor at the Washington State-based college, who was in the country for a short visit.
In his caption, Donny wrote, "For those who don’t know, when the pandemic hit over 2 years ago, Ella, Hannah, and myself decided to complete our degrees together (with mine specifying in Leadership).
"And today, despite the busy schedules, many sleepless nights (and fights [emoji]), we were able to have a joint graduation ceremony thanks to the visit of our professor, who is here in Manila for a couple of days."
Donny also thanked his college professors and his parents, Maricel Laxa and Anthony Pangilinan, for guiding him in this journey.
He wrote, "I would like to thank Dr. Cyndi Romine and everyone of College for Global Deployment in Washington State for this opportunity, and for your patience and guidance.
"Thanks to mom and dad as well who kept telling me everyday to do my modules and papers [emoji] love you both!"
Maricel was, of course, the first to congratulate Donnie and wrote, "This IS a taste of heaven for me Son. Thank you! [emoji]"
Here are some of the comments from Donnie's friends, associates, and followers.
