Let me introduce to you some of the staff of Sun-Star Davao where I submit my editorial cartoons that you see posted in this blog. First in the row: Gigie Agtay, news editor; Nelson Bagaforo, news editor; Tessie Pana, marketing supervisor; and Estella Estremera, editor-in-chief. The occasion? They received the Tao Award '09 of the Ateneo de Davao University last Saturday, March 14, 2009.
Alongside with other trimedia representatives (local and national) who received their awards for winning as students' fave in the awarding event, SSD was conferred with Favorite News Section, Favorite Sports Section, Favorite Lifestyle Section, Favorite Editorial Section and Favorite Entertainment Section in the local category.
Anyway, what can I say for the men and women behind SSD? Congratulations. I know that such awards are also a source of inspiration to strive further to consistently print quality local newspaper like SSD. Kudos to all of you! (Photo grab from SSD webpage)
