A TEACHER in Aklan province was the national winner at the Dangal ng Bayan Awards or the search for the 2022 Outstanding Government Workers by the Civil Service Commission.

Ju-Im T. Jimlan, head teacher I of Tamalagon Integrated School, was recognized for developing innovative teaching approaches and information materials such as the “Tuklas-Aral, Bisita-Kumustahan” and “Modyul Mo, Hatod Ko.”

“Jimlan’s painful experiences as a child growing up in Marawi motivated him to be the best teacher he can be by knowing that education is key in changing a child’s life,” the CSC said.

“He is active in community work, volunteering as a responder during Typhoon Odette and organizing donation drives for Covid19 frontliners,” it added.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles commended Jimlan for his remarkable public service.

“For upholding public interest, particularly student welfare, over and above personal interest, he is one of this year’s recipients of the Outstanding Public Officials and Employees or Dangal Ng Bayan Award,” Nograles said in a statement.

Individuals working in the sector of state auditing, social welfare and development, administration and planning, and the medical sector were also given the award.

The Dangal ng Bayan Award is conferred on an individual for performance of an extraordinary act or public service and consistent demonstration of exemplary ethical behavior.
