2nd Lt. Jesson Cawaing Peñaflor returned to his home province of Bukidnon after graduating from the United States Military Academy at West Point and received recognition for his achievement which is a rarity for someone from the province.
A proud son of Kalilangan town, 2Lt. Peñaflor visited Kalilangan Municipal Mayor Umaradji C. Pizarro.
He received a special plaque of appreciation from the Sangguniang Bayan of Kalilangan.
He was also invited during the 51st Regular Session of the 26th Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) of the Province of Bukidnon presided by Provincial Vice Governor Rogelio N. Quiňo, held last July 14, 2020 at the SP Session Hall, Capitol Compound, Malaybalay City, Bukidnon.
Last June, 2Lt. Peñaflor became the first cadet from Bukidnon and just the second Mindanaoan to graduate at West Point after Christy Isis Achanzar from Davao who did it in 2008 became the first ever Filipina and Mindanaoan to do so.
