The Road to Success is not straight: There is a curve called failure, a loop called confusion, speed bumps called friends, caution lights called family, and you will have flats called jobs. But, if you have a spare called determination, an engine called perseverance, insurance called faith, and a driver called God, you will make it to a place called success!

FAREWELL SEC BONCODIN


The Philippines is mourning again as another truthful and dedicated public servant has passed away.

Former Budget Secratary Emilia Boncodin died on Monday afternoon. The National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI), in a medical bulletin, said Boncodin died at 2:05 p.m. due to cardiac arrest. She was 55. She was tried to be revived for two hours but her frail body gave up.

She was admitted to the said hospital on March 10 due to difficulty in breathing. Her diagnosis was anemia and end stage renal disease or what we call Nephropathy. She has a history of congenital kidney cyst. Her sister was chosen as a potential donor after it was determined that she was a perfect match but Sec. Boncodin requested to have it postponed until the Philippine Congress has passed the budget that year.

Boncondin has been a consistent valedictorian from elementary up to high school. She became then a scholar of the University of the Philippines in which she Majored in Business Administration and Accountancy. After graduation, she took the CPA Board Examination and was included among the top 20, placing in the 15th spot.

She also taught as a professorial lecturer at the National College of Public Administration and Governance (NCPAG) at the University of the Philippines and the Lyceum of the Philippines.

She was awarded the degree of Master in Public Administration at Harvard University as an Edward S. Mason Fellow.

She is known as a professional and hard working public servant. She initially joined the department as a senior fiscal planning specialist. In 1978, she quickly rose to become division chief at the age of 27, then Director of the Office of Budget and Management, and then Officer-in-Charge of the Government Corporations Budget Bureau of the reorganized DBM.

In 2005, she halted her post at the government as she joined the other cabinet members who called for the resignation of President Macapagal Arroyo. Their group was popularly known as the "Hyatt 10". In 2009, she joined the board of directors of Petron as an independent director.

I really do have high respects for CPAs like Boncodin as I myself, is an Accounting graduate and I know how hard the course is. I admired her for her intellect and dedication as I always hear her on interviews being held by a Christian radio show where my mother always listens to. For a very brilliant and skilled mind like hers, a better opportunity privately or even outside the Philippines could have made her life better and even prosperous. However, she humbly stayed and opted to serve her countrymen.

We do hope that another wonderful person just like her would emerge someday. Transparent, patriotic, and truly dedicated to serve the people.

Farewell Sec!
