Domestic helper’s son leads PNPA Class of 2018

by | News

With a dream to serve the people without expecting anything in return, Police Cadet Fritz John Vallador topped the 2018 graduating Maragtag Class of the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA).

Vallador is a son of an overseas Filipina worker in Spain, who, due to her busy work as a domestic helper, wasn’t able to attend her son’s graduation.

“I’m saddened na hindi makakarating ang aking ina, pero nagpaliwanag naman siya sa akin. Yung tita ko, na nagtayong nanay ko simula grade 5 ako, siya ang maghahalili muna,” Vallador said.

The new police cadet never met his father, and her mother solely raised him up.

He also added that his inspiration while studying is his dream to become a good servant.

As part of the class of “Maragtag” (stands for “Mga Magigiting at Responsableng Alagad ng Batas na Gagabay tungo sa Transpormasyong Alay sa Bayan”), Vallador promised that he will serve the country with honesty even if it means risking his life.

Vallador will receive the Presidential Kampilan Award and Plaque of Merit from President Rodrigo Duterte on March 21 at Camp General Mariano Castañeda in Silang, Cavite.

Aside from Vallador, other top graduates include:
– Police Cadet Cherry Mae Montaño from General Santos City
– Police Cadet Francis Pang-ay of Sadanga, Mt. Province
– Police Cadet Jess Agustin of Kabayan, Benguet
– Police Cadet Jesstony Asanion of Sta. Cruz, Zambales
– Fire Cadet Myrick Paldingan of Mankayan, Benguet
– Police Cadet Christian Juego of Dasmariñas, Cavite
– Police Cadet Stephen Abrica of Cebu City
– Jail Cadet Arjay Cuasay of Parañaque City
– Police Cadet Maricar Ansus of Sorsogon City
