EXTENDED 20TH ANNIVERSARY REUNION FOR BNHS CLASS OF 1987. Our Bohol National High School (BNHS) Class of 1987 had its “official” reunion last July 27 and 28, but the celebration continued till last Sunday, August 12, during the second round of bundle of joy giving at the Gawad Kalinga Saint Vincent Village in Cabawan District, this City. This time, Ma. Annaliza M. Preciado-Yano, officer-in-charge of the Mabuhay Philippines, Inc. of Ehime, Matsuyama, Japan and Noel Aranas Cericos of Aurora, Illinois, USA sponsored the activity which distributed used clothing and food stuffs for the 33 families. The first round of gift-giving undertaken by the group last May 15 was initiated by Teresita Maria S. Lapez-Storms, president of the Boholano Belgian Association based in Dendermonde, Belgium. We could not have done our Gawad Kalinga – Cabawan outreach activity sans the guidance and support of Arsenio and Virgilia Magallanes-Geñoso, project managers and Martin Alcano, project coordinator. (Thank you ever so much!) Other BNHS Class of 1987 alumni officers and batchmates who joined the recent activity were Isabelito Butawan, BNHS Class ’87 alumni president, Carlota L. Hormillada-Budiongan, Engr. Ver Neil Buslon Balaba, vice-president for internal affairs; Luzviminda Navarro-Tiongson, Edwina Ancla Laurel, moi (Fiel Angeli E. Araoarao-Gabin, vice-president for external affairs) and Vilsuette S. Jamisola-Lingo, Engr. Ramil Karaan Palileo and Alex Miculob Cuñado. During the career symposium we organized for the 500 fourth year students of DCPNHS last July 27, the group donated 50 Monobloc chairs and 50 stools for the Dr. Cecilio Putong National High School Gym, sponsored the first-ever luncheon fellowship for all the teachers and non-academic personnel of the school, and came up with a position paper supporting the restoration of the name “BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL,” aside from the dinner fellowship at Villa Alzhun Tourist Inn and Restaurant with Dr. Benita Fostanes-Osorio, former school principal as guest of honor and the beach gathering at Dumaluan Beach in Panglao on July 28. Next major reunion has been set in July 2012 on the occasion of the group’s 25th anniversary (pohon!) (jefilogabin)

DENGUE ALERT. On behalf of the Holy Spirit School Federated Parents-Teachers Association (HSS-FPTA), my husband Jerome, Cielo and I went to extend condolences to the family of the late Sandra Dinorog (Calceta Street) the day before her interment. The daughter of Concepcion “Siony” Dinorog (a schoolmate during my college days at Divine Word College-Tagbilaran, now a caregiver in Canada), Sandra (born on February 2, 2001), a six-year-old Grade 1-Joy pupil of Holy Spirit School, succumbed to death due to complications caused by dengue hemorrhagic fever. For many times we have heard that “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.” Allow me then to share with you information on dengue (pronounced “den-ghee”). “It is a flu-like viral disease spread by the bite of infected mosquitoes. Dengue hemorrhagic fever is an acute febrile viral disease caused by dengue viruses which are transmitted to humans through the bites of infective female aedes mosquitoes. The disease (incubation period is from 3 to 14 days), is not directly transmitted from person to person. What are its signs and symptoms? Dengue is characterized by sudden onset fever for 3 to 5 days, intense headache, muscle pain, joint pain, eye pain, anorexia, gastro-intestinal disturbances, and rash. If someone has observed these signs and symptoms on his or her family member, medical advice must be sought, as untreated dengue hemorrhagic fever can be fatal. Dengue is diagnosed by blood test. At present, there is no specific treatment, no vaccine is currently available. The only method of controlling dengue is to combat the aedes mosquitoes. Eliminating mosquito breeding sites is the key preventive measure. Dengue could also be prevented by using proper solid waste disposal methods, eliminating stagnant water in domestic environment, having improved water storage practices, discarding items that can collect rain or run-off water, especially old tires, changing regularly the outdoor water containers, using aerosol and liquid sprays to kill adult mosquitoes, using mosquito coil to be placed near possible entrance, such as windows, wearing long-sleeved clothes and long trousers when going outdoors, applying insect repellent on clothes and Off lotion for exposed part of the body, especially when traveling, and using mosquito bednet when the room is not air-conditioned.

THE HOLY SPIRIT SCHOOL FEDERATED PARENTS-TEACHERS ASSOCIATION IS HEADED BY JERRY JOSEPH AZCONA LIM.

BOHOL CARES’ “AN EVENING OF SHARING AND GIVING” ON AUGUST 18. After becoming curious of the “Pink October” (breast cancer) crusade in the program anchored by ABS-CBN Cebu’s Angela Calina in October 2006, I chanced to meet officers and members of BOHOL CARES, a cancer support group linking people through their experience of cancer, based at the Our Lady of Lourdes Parish (OLLP), Tagbilaran City. The group members believe that anyone's support can make an enormous difference in the life of a cancer patient. On August 18, 2007, at 6:00 in the evening, you can dine with Bohol Cares at JJ's Seafood Village. Proceeds of this fundraiser will be used for the Gift of Joy 2007 to provide some cancer patients with their basic medical needs. Tickets at P300.00 per person are available at the OLLP. Guest speaker for the evening is City Councilor Nerio Buchie Zamora. Entertainment will be provided by the Bukang Liwayway Dance Troupe of Dr. Cecilio Putong National High School with choreographer Oscar B. Real. Bohol Cares is open to people with cancer, their families and friends, volunteers and supporters. Formed in 2005 by five women who were experiencing life-altering situations, Bohol Cares, an association of people affected by cancer and their families and friends, intends to promote cancer awareness by early detection and prevention. Members meet informally once a month in a relaxed atmosphere for discussion and the sharing of experiences. As a support group, it provides an opportunity to forget about cancer for a while by holding social activities that have nothing to do with the illness. Last year, the group has embarked on “Walk With Us 2006” and the “Gift of Joy 2006.” A number of the group’s members have already passed away, while others are experiencing recurrence now. If you or someone you know has cancer, Bohol Cares can help. Interested parties may contact 4112413, 4113167, 2355389, 09193988402 or 09059436636 and ask for Nene, Pat or Estela or you can e-mail them at boholcares@yahoo.com. Thanks to Ms. Patricia Teh for giving me information.

‘BOTIKA SA KATAWHAN’ MARKS FIRST ANNIVERSARY


Last Tuesday, July 31, “Botika sa Katawhan,” a premium project of the Lim-Montes Administration marked its first anniversary held at the “Botika sa Katawhan” Office at the City Health Building.

It may be recalled that City Mayor Dan Neri Lim, on June 16, 2006, approved Ordinance No. C-193 authored by then City Vice-Mayor Nuevas Tirol – Montes and sponsored by Councilor Jose Antonio Salera Veloso, creating the “Botika sa Katawhan”, a joint project of the private sector and the City Government of Tagbilaran which gives free medicines to the poorest of the poor residents in the City to ensure good health and general welfare of the constituents.

“Botika sa Katawhan is making free medicines available to the poorest of the poor of Tagbilaran, a project borne out of the recognition that inaccessibility of medicines have, more often than not, caused this disabling disparity among residents of the City. It is an offshoot of several endeavors namely Bundles of Joy, Medical Missions, and Free Clinics targeted to provide relief services to a selected sector of the city that have been undertaken by a few highly active and concerned residents who took the initiative of soliciting medicines from both foundations in the United States of America (USA) and local donors.”

The ordinance states the limitations observed during these endeavors:
1)   these are scheduled events, thus, those who get sick during any other time other than the scheduled medical mission of free clinic cannot avail of the health services;

2)   there is absence of screening as to who can avail of these services so that not all those who could have needed more medical attention are attended to; and

3)   there is no follow-up on these activities and on the beneficiaries as well so that services are of a one-shot and piecemeal nature

Implementation of the project is done by a body composed of the following:
1)   Chairperson - City Mayor, or his authorized representative
2)   Vice-Chairperson - SP Chairperson, Committee on Health and Sanitation
3)   Members – City Health Officer
                         City Social Welfare and Development Officer
                         City Treasurer
                         City Budget Officer
                         Blue Card Administrator
                         Representative from the Barangay Affairs
                         Representative from the Private Sector
                         Representative from the Media

The Body spearheading the project shall exercise the following powers and functions:
1)   Formulate and adopt measures mutually beneficial to the “Botika sa Katawhan” project;
2)   Seek donations and facilitate funding coming from domestic sources or abroad for the efficient and effective implementation of activities and program of the project;
3)   Recommendation measures to encourage donors and continue their support;
4)   Administer the “Botika sa Katawhan” Fund and submit annual and quarterly reports to the Sangguniang Panlungsod on the status of funds and the implementation of the program; and
5)   Oversee and monitor the operation of the project.

Beneficiaries of the project shall be indigents of the City. The applicant must meet the requirements that may be determined by the body and or those enumerated under Article 5 of the Blue Card Ordinance. Blue Card Holders and applicants enrolled in the sponsored indigent program of the Philippine Health Insurance Corporation are still qualified to avail of such services.

BARANGAY, SK ELECTIONS
August 3 a holiday for high school, college students--Palace

INQUIRER.net
Last updated 03:24pm (Mla time) 08/01/2007
MANILA, Philippines -- Malacañang has declared August 3 a special holiday for high school and college students all over the country to allow them to register as new voters for the barangay (village) and Sanggunian Kabataan [youth council] elections this October.
Proclamation 1345 released by Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita Wednesday said the registration on August 4 and 5 would cover high school and college student who would be between 15 and 17 years old by October 29.
The proclamation said that despite the August 4 and 5 registration dates, August 3 was declared a holiday because "majority of the Filipino youth who would register for the barangay and SK elections would need ample time to travel to their home province, city, or municipality where they reside."
The Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education (CHED), and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) are directed to help supervise the implementation of the proclamation. (Lira D. Fernandez)

A CHILD’S COMMANDMENTS TO PARENTS

1.   My hands are small: please don’t expect perfection whenever I make bed, draw a picture or throw a ball. My legs are short: please slow down so that I can keep up with you.

2.   My eyes have not seen the world as yours have: please let me explore safely. Don’t restrict me unnecessarily.

3.   Housework will always be there. I’m little for such a short time. Please take time to explain things for me about this wonderful world and do so willingly.

4.   Me feelings are tender: please be attentive to my needs. Don’t nag me all day long. (You wouldn’t want to be nagged for your inquisitiveness.) Treat me as the way you want to be treated.

5.   I’m a special gift from God: please take care of me as God intended you to do, holding me accountable for my actions, giving me guidelines to live by, and explaining to me in a loving manner.

6.   I need encouragement and praise, but not your criticism to grow. Please go easy on the criticism; remember you can criticize the things that I do without criticizing me.

7.   Please give me the freedom to make decisions concerning my self. Permit me to fail so that I can learn from my mistakes. Then, someday, I’ll be prepared to make the kind of decisions life requires me.

8.   Please don’t do things over for me. Somehow, that makes me feel that my efforts didn’t quite measure up to your expectations. I know it’s hard, but please don’t try to compare me with my brother or my sister.

9.   Please don’t be afraid to leave for a weekend. Kids need vacations from parents, just as parents need vacation from their kids.

10.   Please take me to church regularly, setting a good example for me to follow. I enjoy learning more about God.

BNHS CLASS OF 1987 MANIFESTO: RESTORATION OF THE NAME 'BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL'
Message: Province of Bohol
City of Tagbilaran
BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL - CLASS OF
1987

MANIFESTO

We, the graduates of BOHOL NATIONAL
HIGH SCHOOL – CLASS OF 1987, do hereby
pledge our all-out support for the
RESTORATION OF THE NAME “BOHOL NATIONAL
HIGH SCHOOL” for the following reasons:

Whereas, the “BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH
SCHOOL,” as an educational institution,
has helped mold the future of the
countless Boholanos who have passed the
portals of the school;

Whereas, sometime in 1997, a group
worked on the change of name of the
school from “BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH
SCHOOL” to “DR. CECILIO PUTONG NATIONAL
HIGH SCHOOL,” after Dr. Cecilio Putong,
the Boholano who became Secretary of
Education during the time of Pres.
Carlos Polestico Garcia;

Whereas, such action as done without
proper consultation / public hearing
with the school authorities, teachers,
students, alumni and those who have
loved the school for its name and the
ideals for which it stands;

Whereas, there has been a general
clamor for the restoration of the
name “BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL” from
alumni to preserve and uphold the
identity of the school highlighting the
name of the province of “BOHOL;”

Whereas, the old building of the “BOHOL
NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL” originally “BOHOL
HIGH SCHOOL,” constructed in 1905 has
been declared as “heritage landmark” by
the National Historical Institute (NHI);

Whereas, the school could have honored
Dr. Putong’s remarkable achievements by
way of naming a particular building or
something of significance inside the
campus;

Whereas, Dr. Cecilio Putong, while his
achievements have given pride to the
Boholanos, his singular honor cannot
overshadow the magnitude of the
collectively glory reaped by countless
alumni of “BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL;”

THEREFORE, we the graduates of “BOHOL
NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL – CLASS OF 1987,”
do hereby support the move to restore
the name “BOHOL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL”
and hereby affix our signatures during
our 20th Anniversary Reunion this 27th
day of July, 2007 in the City of
Tagbilaran, Bohol, Philippines.

DENGUE FEVER PREVENTION ADVISORY:FOR THOSE WHO ARE IN BOHOL(FROM MAY VALLES BLANCO)
Message: DENGUE FEVER PREVENTION (FROM MAY
VALLES BLANCO)
Message: Dengue Fever Prevention

Dengue fever is caused by a bite from
an infected Aedes mosquito. This
species of mosquito has black and white
stripes on its legs and body. It bites
during daylight hours. Its preferred
breeding waters are clean, stagnant
waters in shady areas.

Dengue fever ( DF ), dengue hemorrhagic
fever ( DHF ) and Dengue Shock Syndrome
( DSS ) are caused by viruses DEN-1,
DEN-2 and DEN-3. DHF is contracted when
the victim is infected with a second or
even third strain of virus after the
initial infection of a strain of dengue
virus. This is because being infected
with one strain of dengue virus does
not render you immune to the other
strains ( or serotypes ).



If your housing area is dengue-prone,
you may need four different dengue
immunizations. The most common dengue
is dengue fever.

You need to see your physician
immediately if you show clinical signs
of dengue. The symptoms include fever,
bad headaches, muscle and joint pains,
skin rashes and overall weakness in the
body. DHF has further complications of
cough, vomiting and stomach pains. DSS
is detected with symptoms like cold,
sweaty palms, nose or gum bleeds,
excretion of blood, vomiting and
stomach pains.

Dengue is a fatal disease and deserves
immediate medical treatment.
Intravenous fluids ( IV ) are used to
treat the electrolyte imbalances and
dehydration. Depending on the patient's
condition, blood transfusion may be
ordered by the doctor. Dengue needs
hospitalization and intensive care.
Recovery is possible. In contrast,
untreated victims have only a 50 %
chance of survival.

To cope with dengue, prevention of
being bitten by a Aedes mosquito or any
other infected mosquito is better than
curing the disease. Guard against
collection of stagnant water within the
house. Flower vases, plant plates,
receptacles, rainwater and gully traps
within bathrooms invite breeding. For
water receptacles, change the water
daily.

Outside the house, watch out for holes,
accumulation of leaves, exposed rubbish
and stagnant gully traps. These are
sources of stagnant water for mosquito
breeding.

There are sprays and insecticides to
kill mosquitoes and larvae. These are
cheap preventive measures as compared
to the high costs of hospitalization
and danger to human lives.

DENGUE FEVER PREVENTION
Prevalence
Dengue Fever is an acute febrile viral
disease caused by dengue viruses.
Dengue Fever Cases are reported in Hong
Kong this year. The infection could be
acquired both locally and outside Hong
Kong, most commonly from Southeast
Asian countries.
Mode of Transmission
Dengue viruses are transmitted to
humans through the bites of infective
female Aedes mosquitoes. The disease is
not directly transmitted from person to
person.
Incubation Period
The incubation period is from 3 to 14
days.
Clinical Features
Dengue Fever is an acute febrile
infection characterized by sudden
onset, fever for 3-5 days, intense
headache, muscle pain, joint pain, eye
pain, anorexia, gastrointestinal
disturbances and rash. Seek medical
advice if you have the above symptoms
after travel to Southeast Asian
countries. Untreated Dengue
haemorrhagic fever can be fatal.
Prevention and Control
At present, there is no specific
treatment. No vaccine is current
available. The only method of
controlling or preventing Dengue Fever
is to combat the vector mosquitoes.
Vector control is implemented using
environmental management and chemical
methods. Proper solid waste disposal,
elimination of stagnant water in
domestic environment and improved water
storage practices.
Aerosol and liquid spray has to be
applied directly to the adult mosquito
for effective killing, e.g. household
pesticides.
Mosquito coil and electric mosquito
mat/ liquid has to be placed near
possible entrance, such as window, for
mosquito.
Wear long-sleeved clothes and long
trousers when going outdoors. Bodies
could be protected from mosquito bite
by applying insect repellent on the
clothes and exposed part of the body
especially when you travel to Dengue
Fever endemic areas.
Mosquito bednet could be used when the
room is not air-conditioned.

Dengue


Dengue [DEN-ghee] is a flu-like viral
disease spread by the bite of infected
mosquitoes. Dengue hemorrhagic fever is
a severe, often fatal, complication of
dengue.
Dengue occurs in most tropical areas of
the world. Most U.S. cases occur in
travelers returning from abroad, but
the dengue risk is increasing for
persons living along the Texas-Mexico
border and in other parts of the
southern United States.
There is no specific treatment for
dengue.
Prevention centers on avoiding mosquito
bites in areas where dengue occurs or
might occur and eliminating breeding
sites.


What is dengue fever? What is dengue
hemorrhagic fever?

Dengue fever is a flu-like illness
spread by the bite of an infected
mosquito.

Dengue hemorrhagic fever is a severe,
often fatal, complication of dengue
fever.



What is the infectious agent that
causes dengue?

Dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever are
caused by any of the dengue family of
viruses. Infection with one virus does
not protect a person against infection
with another.



How is dengue spread?

Dengue is spread by the bite of an
Aedes mosquito. The mosquito transmits
the disease by biting an infected
person and then biting someone else.



Where is dengue found?

Dengue viruses occur in most tropical
areas of the world. Dengue is common in
Africa, Asia, the Pacific, Australia,
and the Americas. It is widespread in
the Caribbean basin. Dengue is most
common in cities but can be found in
rural areas. It is rarely found in
mountainous areas above 4,000 feet.

The mosquitoes that transmit dengue
live among humans and breed in
discarded tires, flower pots, old oil
drums, and water storage containers
close to human dwellings. Unlike the
mosquitoes that cause malaria, dengue
mosquitoes bite during the day.



What are the signs and symptoms of
dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic
fever?

Dengue fever usually starts suddenly
with a high fever, rash, severe
headache, pain behind the eyes, and
muscle and joint pain. The severity of
the joint pain has given dengue the
name "breakbone fever." Nausea,
vomiting, and loss of appetite are
common. A rash usually appears 3 to 4
days after the start of the fever. The
illness can last up to 10 days, but
complete recovery can take as long as a
month. Older children and adults are
usually sicker than young children.

Most dengue infections result in
relatively mild illness, but some can
progress to dengue hemorrhagic fever.
With dengue hemorrhagic fever, the
blood vessels start to leak and cause
bleeding from the nose, mouth, and
gums. Bruising can be a sign of
bleeding inside the body. Without
prompt treatment, the blood vessels can
collapse, causing shock (dengue shock
syndrome). Dengue hemorrhagic fever is
fatal in about 5 percent of cases,
mostly among children and young adults.



How soon after exposure do symptoms
appear?

The time between the bite of a mosquito
carrying dengue virus and the start of
symptoms averages 4 to 6 days, with a
range of 3 to 14 days. An infected
person cannot spread the infection to
other persons but can be a source of
dengue virus for mosquitoes for about 6
days.



How is dengue diagnosed?

Dengue is diagnosed by a blood test.



Who is at risk for dengue?

Anyone who is bitten by an infected
mosquito can get dengue fever. Risk
factors for dengue hemorrhagic fever
include a person's age and immune
status, as well as the type of
infecting virus. Persons who were
previously infected with one or more
types of dengue virus are thought to be
at greater risk for developing dengue
hemorrhagic fever if infected again.



What is the treatment for dengue and
dengue hemorrhagic fever?

There is no specific treatment for
dengue. Persons with dengue fever
should rest and drink plenty of fluids.
They should be kept away from
mosquitoes for the protection of
others. Dengue hemorrhagic fever is
treated by replacing lost fluids. Some
patients need transfusions to control
bleeding.



How common is dengue?

In tropical countries around the world,
dengue is one of the most common viral
diseases spread to humans by
mosquitoes. Tens of millions of cases
of dengue fever and up to hundreds of
thousands of cases of dengue
hemorrhagic fever occur each year.

In the United States, approximately 100
cases of dengue are reported each year
in travelers returning from tropical
areas. Many more cases probably go
unreported. A few persons have become
infected with dengue while living in
the United States. Aedes mosquitoes are
found in Texas, Florida, and other
southern states, and locally acquired
dengue has been reported three times
since 1980 in southern Texas.



Is dengue an emerging infectious
disease?

Yes. All types of dengue virus are re-
emerging worldwide and causing larger
and more frequent epidemics, especially
in cities in the tropics. The emergence
of dengue as a major public health
problem has been most dramatic in the
western hemisphere. Dengue fever has
reached epidemic levels in Central
America and is threatening the United
States.

Several factors are contributing to the
resurgence of dengue fever:

No effective mosquito control efforts
are underway in most countries with
dengue.
Public health systems to detect and
control epidemics are deteriorating
around the world.
Rapid growth of cities in tropical
countries has led to overcrowding,
urban decay, and substandard
sanitation, allowing more mosquitoes to
live closer to more people.
The increase in non-biodegradable
plastic packaging and discarded tires
is creating new breeding sites for
mosquitoes.
Increased jet air travel is helping
people infected with dengue viruses to
move easily from city to city.
Dengue hemorrhagic fever is also on the
rise. Persons who have been infected
with one or more forms of dengue virus
are at greater risk for the more severe
disease. With the increase in all types
of virus, the occurrence of dengue
hemorrhagic fever becomes more likely.



How can dengue be prevented?

There is no vaccine to prevent dengue.
Prevention centers on avoiding mosquito
bites when traveling to areas where
dengue occurs and when in U.S. areas,
especially along the Texas-Mexico
border, where dengue might occur.
Eliminating mosquito breeding sites in
these areas is another key prevention
measure.

Avoid mosquito bites when traveling in
tropical areas:

Use mosquito repellents on skin and
clothing.
When outdoors during times that
mosquitoes are biting, wear long-
sleeved shirts and long pants tucked
into socks.
Avoid heavily populated residential
areas.
When indoors, stay in air-conditioned
or screened areas. Use bednets if
sleeping areas are not screened or air-
conditioned.
If you have symptoms of dengue, report
your travel history to your doctor.
Eliminate mosquito breeding sites in
areas where dengue might occur:

Eliminate mosquito breeding sites
around homes. Discard items that can
collect rain or run-off water,
especially old tires.
Regularly change the water in outdoor
bird baths and pet and animal water
containers.

Dengue

At the present time, there is no
vaccination known for the dengue fever.
Treatment is based on treating the
symptoms. This means giving medication
for each symptom, like giving pain
killers to relieve the dengue sufferer
from pain. Some professionals say that
you have to drink lots of water or
healthy juices. For some patients,
dengue is so bad that they need blood
transfusions to control their bleeding.
Dengue is often fatal. That's why
scientists and researchers are looking
for a cure or vaccine. But no matter
how hard they try, they haven't found a
cure yet. The best way to fight dengue
is not by treating dengue itself but by
preventing the spread of dengue by
eliminating mosquito reproduction.

BOHOLANA-HSS ELEM CLASS '83 IS 2007 OUTSTANDING YOUNG SCIENTIST AWARDEE-DR. CZARINA SALOMA AKPEDONU

Message: Dr. Czarina Aya-ay Saloma Akpedonu, our classmate, has been named 2007 "Outstanding Young Scientist" in the field of Sociology by the National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST), Philippines. The awarding ceremony will be held on 12 July 2007 at the Manila Hotel.

Her brother Caesar, now Dean of the College of Science, UP Diliman, won the
award in 1992 in the field of Applied Physics.

According to Czarina, during that time, her parents (Ciriaco Balangkig Saloma,
an engineer who was the manager of the Bohol Power Grid of the National Power
Corporation in the 1980s, and Celerina Gatal Aya-ay, public school teacher) hang a poster of the NAST's Ten Outstanding Young Scientists in the wall of their library. One of the names that appeared in the poster was that of Ma. Cynthia Rose Banzon-Bautista who won the award in 1988. Dr. Bautista was her teacher at the UP, and she, Czarina, is the second sociologist in the Philippines to win this award, after her teacher.

She thanks both her brother Cesar and Cynch Bautista for the inspiration!


Congrats, Bopeep (Czarina)! We are so proud of you!
