Lady guard receives recognition for honesty
Davao City (30 October) -- Sarah Ambuang, the only lady guard in the city hall was recognized for her honesty during the convocation last Monday October 19, 2009.
She needed the money for her every day expenses, but honesty prevented her from keeping P8, 800 in her pocket.
The shy and soft-spoken Ambuang said she never hesitated to return the cash left at the entrance of the city hall. She said her conscience would surely bug her if she did otherwise.
Ambuang, called her colleague to witness her discovery of the money. "I-uli gyud nako ning kwarta kay kabalo ko ang Ginoo nagtan-aw kanato ug Sya na lang bahala ni ining akong gibuhat. (I will return this money because I know God is watching us and I will leave it to HIM the things I've done.) she said.
Ambuang was on duty at that time and assigned at the entrance in front of the city hall when she saw the money owned by Joy Dacanay, a Sangguniang Panlungsod staff. (Markgellor - City Information Office - LGU Panabo) [top]
