One of her other children is a scholar of the city’s MBTF Scholarship Program and is now third year in college, while the other two are already high school graduates.

Her husband is a fishpond caretaker and is the auditor of the Samahan ng mga Maliliit na Mangingisda sa Dagupan City (SMalManDC).

Her dedication to her work as BHW in Barangay Bonuan Boquig has earned the admiration of the judges who crowned her as this year’s “Natatanging Eba ng Dagupan”.

Jovellanos regularly participates in the city’s outreach programs in her barangay. She sometimes brings medicine to the sick and the needy as her own small way of rendering unliserbisyo in her barangay.

“Kahit po maraming trabaho sa bahay, pumupunta pa rin po ako sa barangay para tuparin ang aking katungkulan na manilbihan sa mga nangangailangan at makatulong sa abot ng aking makakaya,” said Jovellanos.

Jovellanos received an Achievement Award as her trophy for being this year’s “Natatanging Eba ng Dagupan” and a cash prize of P5,000 from Mayor Belen T. Fernandez.

The search was facilitated by the City Social Welfare and Development office. (Joseph C. Bacani/CIO)
