Partido Reporma standard-bearer Sen. Panfilo “Ping” Lacson will be conferred a “Lifetime Achievement Award” by the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc. (PMAAAI) in recognition of his over 50 years of outstanding contributions in government and public service.
In a statement Friday, Lacson cited the Dec. 15, 2021 letter signed by PMAAAI chairperson and chief executive officer Amado T. Espina, Jr. which described him as a person who established a “reputation beyond reproach and worthy of emulation” that brought honor not only to himself and his family but also the entire PMA and its alumni organization.
Lacson will travel to Benguet on Friday, ahead of the annual alumni homecoming and parade of the PMA at the Borromeo Field, Fort del Pilar, Baguio City on Saturday.
The former Philippine National Police (PNP) chief has been unanimously voted by members of the Board of Directors of the PMAAAI to receive the award for his “exemplary and unblemished service to the country” characterized by his “faithful adherence to the virtues of Courage, Loyalty, and Integrity.”
In 2020, Lacson already accepted a Cavalier Award for Public Administration from the PMAAAI for spearheading the fight against corruption in the Senate by enacting laws that focused on promoting transparency and public accountability in government. READ MORE
