Bernardo R. Sayarot, the benefactor of Lea Balderama, a graduate in

who graduated in Elementary Education.
awards were in recognition of their wholehearted support to the Scholarship
Program of the association thereby giving the Buluseño youths the opportunity
to acquire higher level of education and hope for a brighter future.
It also states that their benevolence is very laudable and worthy of
emulation by others so that more professionals can emerge from the ranks of the
all the scholars and their guardians were there to present the plaques to their
sponsors, only Mr. Labrador and Gen. Fortuno were around.
The members of the late Mayor Sayarot’s family who were invited to
receive the Posthumous Award for him were not present.
But, according to DBI President Rogelio F. Fuentes, it is understandable
that they may not come as the family was still still extra cautious in going to
places for the prime suspects in the murder of the late Mayor and his trusted
man, Gabriel “Gamby’ Fuentes, a Buluseño, are still at large.
The plaque was personally delivered by Mr. Fuentes to the Sayarot home at
Valle Verde in Pasig City.
Halum could not come; he resides in the United States.
