Vice Mayor Nito Durano added, "Let's take with us the brand of leadership that is uniquely Danawanon. Let us celebrate life, inspire communities beyond our city, and continue building the nation. Go forth sons and daughters of Danao, and continue to make your home even prouder.

The “Garbo sa Danao Awarding” has evolved significantly since its inception in 1994 when it started honoring those with Latin honors. 

In 2005, the program expanded to include elementary and high school valedictorians, along with increased cash awards. By 2019, topnotchers and post-graduate education achievers were added, with further increase in cash awards. In 2021, bar and board passers were included, receiving both plaques and cash awards.

The overall ceremony highlights the core values that Danao City upholds—Knowledge and Nurture—emphasizing the importance of education, personal growth and community support. As the city looks to the future, it continues to build on these values, ensuring that the spirit of excellence remains alive and thriving, here and now. (SPONSORED CONTENT)
