The most outstanding Negrenses were honored at the Pasidungog 2021 held at the Capitol on Friday night, as part of the 123rd Negros Day celebration.
Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson said that for the past years, the awardees of the Pasindungog 2021 were outstanding Negrenses in their individual field of expertise, but in the light of the present situation, the provincial government would like to acknowledge and give honor to the outstanding offices and groups for their unwavering courage, commitment and consistency in serving the Negrenses and the province in the crisis of historic proportions.
The governor thanked the awardees for being the embodiment of selfless service to the Negrenses.
The 2021 Outstanding Negrense awardees were the 31 LGU COVID-19 Response Teams, Hospital Operations Department led by Dr. Girlie Pinongan, Provincial Health Office led by Dr. Ernell Tumimbang, Disaster Management Program Division led by Dr. Zeaphard Caelian, Information Communication technology Division led by Jose Larry Sanor, Mambukal Resort led by Cheryl Decena, Negros Occidental Police Provincial Office, 303rd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army, Bureau of Fire Protection-Negros Occidental, Philippine Coast Guard-Negros Occidental, and Philippine Red Cross Negros Occ.-Bacolod City Chapter.
“To the present day Negrenses, as we pay homage to the heroes of Cinco de Noviembre, it is our obligation to give back in gratitude, not in words but through actions by being conscientious, active and responsible members of our community and society,” said Lacson./WDJ
