The Mactan Chapter of the BCBP, through its PSD servant leaders Boy and Nene Tampus and Mactan Chapter Head Martin and Agnes Pusta, instituted “The Most Honest” award this year for public high school students in four schools in their area. The award, given during commencement exercises, consisted of a cash gift of one thousand pesos, a Be Honest T-Shirt, and a Certificate of Recognition. Participating schools were the Mactan National H.S., Marigondon National H.S., Gun-ob High School, and Bankal National H.S.
Arninia Pulvera Paquibot, a 1st year student at Mactan National High School, was all smiles as she received her award for finding and retuning a lost wallet containing 5,000 pesos. Hannah Jade O. Elumba, graduating as valedictorian at Marigondon National High School, was cited for her honesty during an exam.
Joyful John E. Torreon, graduating from Gun-ob High School, was congratulated for his honesty in checking exams and returning lost items. 24-yr-old, 3rd year student Riza S. Compuesto of Bankal National High School received her award for honesty in handling funds as she supports her schooling by working as a nanny.
Inspired by the success of the program that supports the BCBP’s Be Honest Advocacy, the Mactan chapter leadership plans to not only continue the awards next year but to expand the program to other schools in their area.
