Muntinlupa City honored its 10 Oustanding Citizens who have made valuable contributions to the city Friday, in an award ceremony held during the 97th founding anniversary of Muntinlupa as a municipality.
“We are very much privileged to have these 10 Outstanding Citizens among us,” Mayor Jaime R. Fresnedi remarked. “They serve as living examples of what ‘lakas, talino at buhay’ really means. Because of them—and many others like them who may not be recognized—our city has grown even stronger for the last 97 years.”
The 10 outstanding citizens are Dionisio Alog of Ayala Alabang; Marl Lester Collmar and Sherwin Gonzales Lomeda of Putatan; Danilo Carandang of Bayanan; Dino Canlas of Poblacion; Rowena Hibanada of Cupang; Felicitas Rabonza of Alabang; retired police chief superintendent Roberto Rongavilla of Buli; and Daisy Rodenas and Leonora Calubaquib of Tunasan.
Muntinlupa City also recognized individuals who shone in their fields, among them, figure skater and Olympian Michael Martinez, former Muntinlupa mayor and press secretary Ignacio Bunye, advertising wunderkind Third Domingo and Edwin Marollano.
The mayor said he is looking forward in taking Muntinlupa to its vision in being a leading investment hub in the country.
