“Your achievement inspires our youth that, thru discipline, hard work and passion, they can also reach the global stage in pursuit of their dreams,”

This was what Murcia Mayor Victor Gerardo Rojas said to Sheryl

Mae Otañes, of the town’s Barangay Minoyan and a member of the Philippine Women’s Table Tennis Team.

Otañes was among those who bannered the flag of the Philippines and competed at the 32nd South East Asian Games in Vietnam in May this year.

She received a certificate of achievement and cash incentive from Murcia officials in recognition of her accomplishments. (PR)
