CITY OF MALOLOS - “This award will serve as a challenge to all of us to strengthen our desire to help in the development and progress of our dear country.”

He also thanked the Provincial Government of Bulacan for recognizing outstanding Bulakenyos in their chosen field of expertise.

“Ito ay isang karangalang ipagmamalaki namin sa aming kaapu-apuhan at ibabahagi sa aming mga kababayan sa mahal naming lalawigan ng Bulacan,” the justice secretary added.
Guevarra, who was awarded for the Government Service field, was joined by Department of Health Secretary Dr. Francisco T. Duque III for Health; Armed Forces of the Philippines Chief of Staff Gen.

Governor Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado proudly claimed that Bulakenyos in every generation carved the province’s name in the golden history of the country.

“Ang mga pinarangalan ngayong gabing ito ang magsisilbing parola sa kabilang baybayin na magtuturo ng ruta upang masumpungan ng mga bagong Bulakenyo na maglalakas-loob na pumalaot sa dagat ng pakikipagsapalaran,” the governor said.

The Gawad Dangal ng Lipi is the highest distinction the PGB is giving to notable Bulakenyos.

It was previously known as Natatanging Bulakenyo Award and started honoring exceptional Bulakenyos in 1974.
