Mayor Felipe Antonio B. Remollo expressed his congratulations to our indefatigable City Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla for having been selected by the Civil Service Commission as one of the Regional Winners for the 2022 Search for Outstanding Government Workers for the Dangal ng Bayan Individual Category by the Civil Service Commission Regional Committee on Awards.
Civil Service Commission Region 7 Director Carlos A. Evangelista also acknowledged Mayor Felipe Antonio B. Remollo for recognizing Dr. Talla’s accomplishments and his nominator HRMO Dr. Dinno T. Depositario for painstakingly collating all the documentary requirements needed to support her nomination.
Director Evangelista expressed optimism that Dr. Talla’s laudable endeavors and accomplishments will truly be an inspiration and worthy of emulation to achieve the dream of making every civil servant into a Lingkod Bayani.
Under Dr. Talla’s technical guidance and as Vice-Chairperson of Mayor Remollo in the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, Dumaguete City’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has largely controlled the spread of the virus, obtained highest vaccination rate of 141.56% in Central Visayas exceeding the 80.67% goal for herd immunity set by DOH and prevented deaths.
Dr. Talla will represent Region 7 in the national search for Dangal ng Bayan Individual Category, thus her nomination documents will be forwarded to the Civil Service Commission HAP Secretariat for evaluation and deliberation by the National Committee on Awards.
