Capiz's Injap Sia Among 7 TOYM Awardees This Year PDF Print E-mail
President Aquino conferred the awards on the seven honorees in a simple ceremony in Malacañang on Wednesday and called on them to “continue to pursue meaningful endeavors.”

The only woman TOYM awardee is Ma. Antonia Gregorio Arroyo, daughter of Senator Joker Arroyo  and  chief executive officer and founder of Hybridgm Consulting, the first biotechnology consulting firm in the country.
The other winners are Valenzuela City Mayor Sherwin Gatchalian (for public service); Calapan City Mayor Paulino Salvador (community development); infectious disease physician Dr. Raul Destura (medical science); music director Gerardo Joseph Salonga (music); Edgar Sia II of Mang Inasal fame (entrepreneurship); and Antonio Tiu  (entrepreneurship).

“Instead of looking at this award as a guarantee that you will go on to be leaders of our country, it should instead serve as a challenge for you to be an example—a living inspiration—of the best that our country can be,” the President said in his speech at the awards ceremony.

“I hope that you will not take this lightly. If you succeed in this, each of you can help dispel cynicism, corruption and selfishness thereby restoring our confidence in ourselves. But if you fail to live up to this challenge, you will have contributed to the erosion of our collective values and self-esteem,” Aquino said.
