CITY OF MALOLOS - Bulacan Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado was all praises not only to the winners of the recently concluded Gintong Kabataan Awards held at the Pavilion of the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center here but to the Bulakenyo youth as a whole for their unwavering contribution in the development of the nation.

“Napakahalagang kilalanin natin ang mga kabataan at ang kanilang mga pagsusumikap upang itaguyod ang ating lalalawigan. Batid ng inyong lingkod na ang okasyong ito na ating ipinagdidiwang ay hindi lamang upang bigyan papuri ang mga tatanggap ng parangal sa gabing ito sa iba’t ibang larangan, sa halip ay isa itong taimtim na pagkilala at pangkalahatang pagpupugay sa ating mga kabataan na patuloy nating katuwang sa pagsusulong ng pangkalahatang kabutihan ng lalawigan,” Alvarado said.

The governor also recalled the important roles played by the young heroes in the history of the Philippines wherein amidst their young age, they served as an inspiration to others and contributed in their own ways to achieve sovereignty.

“Ang Lalawigan ng Bulacan ay mapalad na biniyayaan ng ganitong hanay ng kabataan. Nariyan si Gat. Marcelo H. Del Pilar, ang kanyang pamangkin na si Hen. Gregorio del Pilar, Mariano Ponce, Pio Valenzuela at marami pang iba. Sa kabila ng kanilang murang gulang, naging bukal sila ng pag-asa at inspirasyon para sa mga mamamayang lugmok sa pighati at pagmamamalabis. Salat man sa mga laya at karapatang ipinagkait ng mga mananakop, pinagsumakitan nilang sumpungin ang mahahalagang kaalaman sa pamamagitan ng edukasyon sapagkat batid nila na ito lamang ang tanging paraan upang mapatatag ang kanilang marupok na kalagayan sa lipunan,” the provincial chief executive added.

Meanwhile, this year’s Gintong Kabataan awardees include Shaira Lenn Roberto a.k.a. “Sanya Lopez” of Pulilan, Ken Steven Chan a.k.a. “Ken Chan” of Marilao for performing arts-individual category; Jose Lorenzo “Pepe” Diokno of Bulakan for film making-individual; Malolos Marine Fishery School and Laboratory Performing Arts Club (City of Malolos) for the arts and culture-group category; Arthur Reiner De Belen of Doña Remedios Trinidad (secondary) and Gladys Leigh Malana of Bocaue (college) for academic excellence; Ferdinand Talbenito, Jr. of the City of Malolos for entrepreneur; Reymond Galvez of Balagtas for community service; Atty.

Blue Ocean 10 (Robotics); Jericho Estrella (Journalism); Ryan Richard Tamondong and Jeremy Layug (arts); Ma. Patricia Riego De Dios and Dr. Roscoe Cruz (Science/Medicine); Atty. Reginald Arceo, Atty.
