Guv lauds world
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Negros Occidental Governor Alfredo Marañon Jr. yesterday lauded the world class talents and dedication to service of Negrenses, that, he said, with unity of purpose similar to that of the Cinco de Noviembre heroes 114 years ago, can bring the province to the top of the world.
Marañon and his wife, Marilyn, led in honoring the five outstanding Negrenses at the 114th Cinco de Noviembre rites at the provincial Capitol Social Hall last night.
Honored were Social Welfare and Development Secretary Corazon Juliano Soliman for public service, Antonio Agustin “Tony Boy” Montilla Escalante for culinary arts and business, Dr. Cecilia Dreyfus Del Castillo for women empowerment and microfinance, Araceli “Bukay” Garcia Ramos for community health service, and Romeo Reyes Belmonte for agriculture.
