Part of the program was the distribution of awards to the military personnel of the 54IB, 5ID, PA and civilian partner stakeholders who took part in the construction and rehabilitation of the said school.  

Lt. Colonel Nicolas Quemada, 54th IB commanding officer, commended the ­troops involved in the said project. He also encouraged the teachers and the parents to maintain and preserve the school buildings as a symbol of good partnership of the soldiers, the stakeholders and the community.

“I and my men are very much honored to become an instrument in rehabilitating your school building.
