Mayor Mauricio Domogan urged this year’s 10 Outstanding Citizens of Baguio to continue their services in their respective fields.

“As members of the Society of Outstanding Citizens of Baguio, continue to do your community and professional expertise in which you have chosen and awarded for,” the mayor said during the testimonial dinner in honor of the awardees last week.

The 10 Outstanding Citizens of Baguio is the highest award the local government confers on a Baguio resident.

Domogan said Baguio has surpassed challenges because of the collaborative efforts of the community.

“Hopefully, as we move on, a lot of our citizens will be chosen to be members of this society,” Domogan said reiterating that being picked as one of the 10 outstanding citizens of the city is a real distinction, as one has to go through a rigid screening process.

The mayor said he wants to protect the annual search to make sure that the distinction will remain even if he is no longer the city’s chief executive.

At the testimonial dinner, the awardees shared their experiences and pledged to continue what had made them earn the award.

This year’s outstanding citizens are  Bonifacio dela Peña, who was awarded for professional distinction; Dr. Ester Litilit, who was awarded in the field of education; Generosa Boado Carbonell, who was awarded for community service; Rolando Villanueva, an awardee in the field of business; and Guillermo Cortes, a security guard in one of the fast food chains in the city, who was recognized for his honesty and dedication to service.

The other awardees are Jose Bugayong Jr., for community service; Rosalynd Camat for education; Jane Cosalan for community service; Teresita Marcelo, for culture and arts; and Jose Ong Tajan, for community service.
