Cordillera - At least six La Trinidad National High School (LTNHS) teachers were honored by the DepEd Benguet as 'Spot' and ‘Heroic Deed’ awardees during the Management Committee (Mancom) meeting via webinar on April 30.

No other than Schools Division Superintendent Benilda M. Daytaca and Assistant Schools Division Superintended Nestor L. Bolayo awarded the virtual certificates of recognition to Glenda T. Eckman as 'Spot' awardee while Tilma L. Delio, Glaiza Rose T. Agwilang, Marices S. Pacya, Victoria N. Palsiyeng, and Merve P. Kudan as 'Heroic Deed' awardees together with other recipients from the different schools in Benguet.

“Let us honour them because they did something worthy to the community.” Bolayo said.

The certificate bares, “For embodying the Deped Core Values through the her (recipient) commendable and selfless acts of kindness by donating goods to less fortunate families during the Enhanced Community Quarantine; demonstrating further that in this time of crisis, ‘no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.’”

Eckman utilized her skill in tailoring that she had sewn 275 face masks which she donated to La Trinidad town frontliners during the height of ECQ due to Covid-19. 

Just after delivering her hand-made face masks, Eckman learned the scarcity of face masks among frontliners in hospitals and at the checkpoints so she bought more materials for more face masks that she could sew.

Pacya, Kudan, and Basalong accepted the challenge of giving back to the community during crisis like Covid-19. Pacya and her friend, Angelica Pad-ay—Vidor, took the courage of knocking at the hearts of good Samaritans from the Philippines and abroad via online communications. Kudan and Basalong joined in the challenge that reinforced the mission. 

As a result, they were able to provide food packs to 25 students of LTNHS and 50 residents of barangay Lubas in La Trinidad. Since donations keep pouring in, the group chose to continue the operation.

On the other hand, Delio, Palsiyeng, and Agwilang decided to contribute cash amount from their salaries just to buy food packs of 10 students and a school utility worker, who were badly affected by the ECQ.

Mana C. Estakio, LTNHS school principal, said that the said teachers deserve their award because they were able to contribute to the community in times of crisis.
