Baliwag Water District’s (BWD) General Manager Artemio F. Baylosis received the Dangal ng Baliwag Award for Community Service sector from the municipality of Baliwag held May 25, 2017 at the Baliwag Star Arena, DRT Highway, Baliwag, Bulacan as one of the highlights of the month-long celebration of Buntal Hat Fesival.
GM Baylosis was conferred with the said distinction primarily on his efforts to improve the water system and the sanitation service in Baliwag as a General Manager of BWD. His wide vision and leadership prompted BWD to implement Septage Management Program which benefited the whole community of Baliwag and gained adulation from various institutions in the country and even abroad. In his stewardship, BWD has become the benchmarking hub of numerous water districts in the country and other interested groups. Said efforts also propelled him to be Pag-asa Awardee of the Civil Service Commission.
Anchored on the theme, “Galing ng Baliwagueño, Dangal ng Pilipino”, the newly reconstituted Dangal ng Baliwag Award was created to recognize the Baliwagueños who contributed innovative efforts and superior performance on their fields. It was formed to give recognition to individuals who excelled in the field of public service, professional, community service, entrepreneur, education, science and technology, arts and culture, media, agriculture, youth, and sports.
First staged during the time of former Mayor Romeo Estrella, the Dangal ng Baliwag Award seeks to recognize Baliwagueños who have created great impact to the lives of their fellow Baliwagueños.
