Bulong Pulungan supports call for nominations for the 2018 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos. In attendance were 2017 MBFI Outstanding Filipinos: Police Chief Inspector Rosalino Ibay, Jr. (Manila Police District Intelligence and Operations Unit chief, 2nd from left), Lt. Col. Elmer Suderio (head executive assistant at the Office of the Commanding General, Philippine Army, 4th from left), and Dr. Alonzo Gabriel (professor and university scientist at the University of the Philippines Diliman, 5th from left). Joining them in the photo are Metrobank Foundation president Aniceto Sobrepeña (1st from left) and Bulong Pulungan founder / Manila Bulletin columnist Deedee Siytangco (3rd from left).

These are challenging times to be a public servant—especially a teacher, a soldier, and a police officer—in our country. But to say that exemplary public servants are a dying breed would be a great disservice to those who have selflessly pledged their lives in the pursuit of service to our nation. These individuals—who go about their work quietly, pursuing advocacies and initiatives that yield positive change in their respective communities—deserve due recognition. This was the message delivered by the Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI) to media attendees during the Bulong Pulungan sa Sofitel press conference last January 16, 2018.

Another batch of 10 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos will be recognized—4 teachers, 3 soldiers, and 3 police officers. Each awardee will receive a PhP 1 million cash incentive, a trophy, and a gold medallion and will be awarded during Metrobank’s 56th anniversary celebration in September.

“Beyond professional accomplishments, we aim to look for everyday heroes who have gone beyond personal limitations to earn outstanding achievements,” said MBFI president Aniceto Sobrepeña. “The Metrobank Foundation is privileged to highlight their achievements in inspiring change in their respective institutions and for sharing their stories of steadfast commitment in nation-building,” he added.

Present during the press forum were 2017 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos—Dr. Alonzo Gabriel (professor and university scientist, University of the Philippines Diliman), Lt. Col. Elmer Suderio (head executive assistant at the Office of the Commanding General, Philippine Army), and Police Chief Inspector Rosalino Ibay, Jr. (District Intelligence and Operations Unit chief, Manila Police District). They talked about the challenges they faced, their advocacies, and the impact of the award in their lives. They also provided tips to potential nominees.

Under the search, teachers, soldiers, and police officers who are eligible to join must have a minimum of 10 years of service with at least “very satisfactory” rating in the last 10 years of service to their profession. Those who are set to retire must have at least 3 remaining years of service. Qualified elementary and secondary teachers must have completed academic requirements for Master’s Degree while Higher Education teachers must have a doctorate degree. Qualified AFP commissioned officers (Captain to Colonel) must have completed a Bachelor’s Degree while AFP enlisted personnel (Corporal to Chief Master Sergeant) must have completed a High School degree.

The Metrobank Foundation, Inc. (MBFI) took home six (6) trophies at the 15th Philippine Quill Awards last July 5, 2017, held at the Marriott Grand Ballroom, Newport City, Pasay City. Organized by the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines, the Philippine Quill is a prestigious award for organizations which have used excellent communication strategies in achieving their business objectives and in making a difference in the society. MBFI received six (6) trophies—four (4) Excellence Awards and two (2) Merit Awards—for its various programs entered under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) category and one program tool entered under the Publications category.

The first Excellence Award was given to the “2016 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos”, a recognition program which honors public servants in the academe, military, and police for their outstanding service to their sworn duties and noteworthy contributions to nation-building. The program has three components searches—Search for Outstanding Teachers (SOT), Search for The Outstanding Philippine Soldiers (TOPS), and Search for the Country’s Outstanding Police Officers in Service (COPS).

Another Excellence Award was conferred to the “2016 Metrobank Art & Design Excellence (MADE),” an annual recognition program which aims to discover young talents in painting, sculpture, interior design and architecture. Now on its 33rd year, MADE has served as a career launch pad for its awardees by recognizing the excellent works of budding artists as well as professional sculptors, interior designers, and architects.

Through its MADE-Network of Winners, the alumni organization of previous MADE awardees, MADE also conducts public art and art education activities to further promote art appreciation to target sectors and at the same time implements Project HeART, an art psychosocial intervention program for individuals with special needs.

Meanwhile, the “2015 & 2016 National Teachers’ Month (NTM)” also received an Excellence Award. Held from September 5 to October 5 every year, NTM is a movement spearheaded by MBFI and the Department of Education (DepEd), together with various multi-sectoral groups which recognize Filipino teachers and educators and their contribution in shaping the country’s future.

The 2015 celebrations demonstrated the continuing activities dedicated to teachers – composed of capstone events, on-the-ground initiatives, the yearly menu of benefits and discounts, and a supplemental digital celebration. This continued in 2016 wherein NTM reached a milestone with the enactment of Republic Act 10743, officially designating “October 5 of every year as ‘National Teachers’ Day’—affirming the State’s recognition of teachers and their valuable role in national development.”

The fourth Excellence Award was given to the 2015 Metrobank Foundation Annual Report entitled “Dreams, Journeys & Discoveries.” The annual report highlights inspirational and empowering stories of ordinary individuals who share the Foundation’s goal of nation-building. It serves as a tool to account milestones and accomplishments of the Foundation for the period in review by highlighting success stories of its stakeholders and underscoring the roles of its institutional partners in the attainment of corporate objectives.

As a testament to good corporate governance and transparency, the publication aims to deliver accurate information on the Foundation’s operations and financial standing, being the CSR arm of the Metrobank Group.

On the other hand, the two Merit Awards were given to the “2016 Metrobank Math Challenge (MMC)” and the “2016 Bags of Blessing (BOB).”

For 16 years now, MMC has become the longest running and most widely participated annual mathematics competition for elementary and secondary students in both public and private schools in the Philippines. It is implemented by MBFI, in partnership with the Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines and the DepEd. Through the years, MMS has produced young math geniuses who have represented the country and have won in various international math competitions, including the International Math Olympiad.

Meanwhile, underprivileged Filipinos shared in the revelry of the Chinese New Year celebration in the Philippines through the 2016 BOB, a gift-giving project that distributed PhP 10 million worth of food items to 10,000 poor families in 20 cities and municipalities across the country. Implemented by the family foundation of Metrobank Group Chairman Dr. George S.K. Ty—GT Foundation, Inc.—together with the Roman Catholic dioceses, the different companies of GT Capital Holdings, and subsidiaries of the Metrobank Group, the activity enabled the Church to aptly open its doors and give food to the hungry during the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy in 2016.

To date, MBFI has won 46 Philippine Quill for its various programs and public relations tools since 1986.

PNP Chief Police Director General Ronald Dela Rosa graced the 5th General Assembly of the P.R.O.T.E.C.T. (Police Officers Responsible for Organizing, Transforming and Empowering Communities), the alumni organization of the awardees of the Metrobank Foundation-Rotary Club of New Manila East and PSBank search for the Country’s Outstanding Police Officers in Service (COPS) on March 1, 2017 at the PNP Multi Purpose Center in Camp Crame, Quezon City. The Police Chief praised all PNP key officers and members of PROTECT who have shown excellence and contributed in reforming the institution with its efforts in curbing drugs and criminality in their communities. “I believe that PROTECT will be a big help to the PNP, especially in the internal cleansing program which is now among our top priorities. You are the exemplars of courage, outstanding work and integrity in the service. You embody the ideals of service, honor and justice and I hope that you will help the PNP leadership re-ignite these ideals in the hearts of our police personnel as they continue to perform their mandated duties.” said Gen. De la Rosa. “Looking back, it’s been 9 years since the establishment of the alumni organization in 2008. We are happy to note that P.R.O.T.E.C.T. has made strides in terms of its pay-it-forward initiatives in the recent years.” said MBFI president Aniceto Sobrepeña. “Our excellence recognition programs are not only designed to foster and propagate a culture of excellence in the sectors of academe, military, and police through your stories as modern-day heroes,  but also to cascade your insights and best practices to the greater public and make them the next diffence-makers” he added. Among those applauded by Gen. De la Rosa were Quezon City Police District Chief, Police Chief Superintendent Guillermo Eleazar; PNP ARMM Deputy Regional Director for Administration, Police Senior Superintendent Rodelio Jocson; and Chief Directorial Staff of the PNP Finance Service, Police Senior Superintendent Bernard Banac.   Meanwhile, re-elected P.R.O.T.E.C.T.  president Police Chief Superintendent Gilbert Cruz who sits at helm of the Police-Community Relations Group of the PNP gave a full report about the different involvements of P.R.O.T.E.C.T.  in recent years such as visits in different public schools in the metro and dissemination of PNP advisories through the use of interactive police and criminal mascots. Furthermore, P.R.O.T.E.C.T. members were also given the opportunity to share their own accomplishments in strengthening the branding of the alumni organization in their respective communities like Senior Police Officer 4 Tejanne Zarsozo of the Cabadbaran City Police Station. SPO4 Zarsozo spearheaded a mobile cinema “Protect, Feed, Save” project that raises awareness against social ills, tells stories and feeds hungry street children. “We are happy that we are helping and saving many street children in our community. We are also hoping that this project will continue to inspire other PNP units to follow.” said SPO4 Zarsozo. In 2008, COPS awardees have organized themselves into an association that aims to promote responsible citizenship not only in the PNP but in their respective communities as well. Among the P.R.O.T.E.C.T. members are PNP Director for Operations, Police Director Camilo Cascolan; PNP Deputy Director of Internal Affairs Service, Police Director Leo Angelo Leuterio; Police Region 7 Office Police Police Chief Superintendent Noli Taliño; Directorate for Information Technology and Communications Management Police Superintendent Alfred Corpus;  PNP Public Information Office Chief, Police Senior Superintendent Dionardo Carlos; Police Chief Superintendent Federico Laciste Jr.; and Police Director Alex Monteagudo, now Director General at the National Intelligence Coordinating Council.

Over the years, it has produced national winners who get to compete and eventually win in international competitions. It is implemented in partnership with the Mathematics Teachers Association of the Philippines (MTAP) and the Department of Education (DepEd).

It is one of the public relations measures we value as it indicates effective communication to our target publics and impactful strategies to reach out to target communities and sectors. To be awarded with an Anvil means you are doing an outstanding work in the field of public relations which kept us inspired all these years to continue to do good and even doing it better, if not best year after year,” he continued.

Other programs which won Gold Anvil include: 2015 Search for Journalists of the Year (JOY); 2015 The Outstanding Philippine Soldiers (TOPS); 2015 Metrobank-MTAP-DepEd Math Challenge, and 2015 National Teachers’ Month (NTM); while the 2015 Country’s Outstanding Police Officers in Service (COPS) and 2015 Search for Outstanding Teachers (SOT) won Silver Anvils.  Another communication tool “2015 Metrobank Foundation Outstanding Filipinos unified souvenir programs” also won a Gold Anvil.
