CITY OF MALOLOS— Recognizing his outstanding and exemplary services and commitment to the cause of the national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, the Order of the Knights of Rizal honored Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado the 4th degree rank of the order of the Knight Grand Officer of Rizal (KGOR) at the Bulacan Capitol Gymnasium yesterday.

Alvarado said that it is a great privilege to receive this kind of conferment and be included in the distinguished pool of leaders such as President Benigno Aquino III and former President Fidel Ramos who also received the award.

“Mahigit 116 taon na ang nakalipas mula nang nagbuwis ng buhay si Rizal, subalit ang aral na kanyang inihasik sa pamamagitan ng kanyang panulat, maging sa kanyang mismong pag-iral ay buhay pa rin sa diwa at esensya ng maraming Pilipino. Sa pamamagitan ng Order of the Knights of Rizal, pinagtitibay ang panata sa kalayaan sang-ayon sa simulain na inilatag ni Rizal,” said Sy-Alvarado.

He added that if Filipinos will follow the ideals of Rizal in attaining freedom, justice and progress, each vision will become a success.

“Simula sa araw na ito ay muling isisilang ang isang bagong lahi ng bayani, mga bagong henerasyon ng kawal ni Rizal, na kung susundin ang kanyang panuntunan, ang mithiin para sa kalayaan, katarungan at kaunlaran ay tiyak na hindi mabibigo,” said the governor.
Reghis Romero II, the order’s supreme commander, said that they would like to acknowledge the governor’s unparalleled dedication in consistently pursuing the ideals and values of the national hero.

“We followed very closely the achievement of Gov. Willy and we came up with a resolution approved by the supreme council to recognize and award his efforts,” said Romero.

He also mentioned some of the governor’s achievements such as Seal of Good Housekeeping and Hall of Fame Award as the Most Disaster Prepared Province awarded to Bulacan under his governance, Most Outstanding Congressman, Most Outstanding Mayor and PAG-ASA Award from the Civil Service Commission that demonstrated his efforts to live the ideals of Rizal in achieving a prosperous and free society.

The Order of the Knights of Rizal is a fraternal organization created to honor and uphold the ideals of Philippine national hero Jose Rizal. Established on December 30, 1911, the organization was granted a legislative charter by the President of the Philippines as a civic and patriotic organization on 14 June 1951 by Republic Act 646. ###
