Sun.Star Pampanga - - FRONT PAGE -

CITY OF SAN FER­NANDO – The De­part­ment of La­bor and Em­ploy­ment in Cen­tral Lu­zon (DOLE-3) has ac­ti­vated its Tech­ni­cal Work­ing Group–Job Dis­place­ment Con­cerns (TWG–JDC), Re­gional Direc­tor Ze­naidaAn­gara Campita an­nounced Mon­day.

Campita said that the TWG–JDC will mon­i­tor and pro­vide in­ter­ven­tions to work­ers af­fected by se­ri­ous fi­nan­cial losses suf­fered by Han­jin Heavy In­dus­tries and Con­struc­tion Philip­pines (HHIC-Phils) in Su­bic, Zam bal es.

In an in­ter­view with the 20-year old lass, she ex­pressed that join­ing beauty pageants has been her holy grail since she was young. As she pur­sues her dreams of be­com­ing a beauty queen, Taruc has earned lo­cal and na­tional ti­tles such as the Mutya ning An­ge­les -Youth Am­bas­sador in 2017 and Miss Free­dom of the WorldPhilip­pines in 2018.

“Hon­estly, it still hasn’t sank-in yet. I still re­mem­ber at­tend­ing the flag cer­e­mony here to ask for your sup­port and now, you are all con­grat­u­lat­ing me,” she said.

Talk­ing about her plans after win­ning the first in­ter­na­tional crown for the Philip­pines for 2019, Taruc will be back to China early this year to ful­fill her du­ties as an in­ter­na­tional am­bas­sadress.

She is also poised to pur­sue a ca­reer in show busi­ness and join Binib­in­ing Pilip­inas with the hopes of bring­ing home an­other in­ter­na­tional crown for the coun­try. She will also be ac­tive in char­i­ties and other mean­ing­ful causes, she said.

Mean­while, Ne­po­mu­ceno pledged that the city gov­ern­ment will al­ways sup­port her on her fu­ture en­deav­ors.

For his part, Pam­intuan paid homage to Francesca’s grand­fa­ther HUKBALAHAP Supremo Luis Taruc and fa­ther, for­mer city coun­cilor Dr. Romy Taruc who are sym­bols of hero­ism, pa­tri­o­tism, and phi­lan­thropy.

“An­ge­les City is in­deed priv­i­leged to have a beauty queen whose back­story is more than the usual plot of fail­ure and con­quest. You are des­tined to tri­umph and give pride to the city just like the legacy of your an­ces­tors,” Pam­intuan told Taruc.

Francesca, or Fran as she is fondly called by her fam­ily and friends, was born in San Luis town and was raised in An­ge­les City. She holds a de­gree in Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Arts at Holy An­gel Univer­sity.

Also present dur­ing her home­com­ing were coun­cilors Edgardo Pam­intuan Jr. and Danilo Lac­son, for­mer Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fi­cer Jay Pe­layo IV, ABC Pres­i­dent Jeremias Ale­jan­drino, and newly-in­stalled An­ge­les City Po­lice Of­fice Chief PSSupt.
