Awardees.
Saan mang panig ng mundo, kinikilala ang Pilipino sa ating angking galing, sipag, at dedikasyon. Malaki ang
ating kontribusyon sa pag-unlad ng ekonomiya ng maraming bansa, dahilan upang mas maraming mga
kababayan natin ang irespeto sa kani-kanilang mga larangan.
Kaya naman ikinagagalak kong ang Bagong Bayani Foundation Inc., sa pangunguna ni Kalihim Rosalinda

ng ating mga manggagawang Pilipinong nasa ibayong dagat.

Isang mainit na pagbati ang aking ipinaaabot sa lahat ng mga itinanghal na bagong bayani sa 2014
Bagong Bayani Awards, gayundin sa lahat ng mga burnubuo sa Bagong Bayani Foundation, Inc. na sa
nakalipas na 30 taon ay patuloy na umuugit sa nasabing Gawad at sumusubaybay sa mga natatangi at
kahanga-hangang gawain ng ating mga manggagawa sa ibayong dagat.
Isang malaking karangalan ang mahirang bilang isa sa mga Bagong Bayani. Ang Gawad ay simple
ngunit makabuluhang simbolo ng pagkilala ng ating bansa sa napakalaking ambag ng mga migranteng
manggagawa sa patuloy nating pagsisikap na mai-ugit ang isang bansang maunlad, marangal, at
pinagpipitagan ng pandaigdigang pamayanan. Ang Gawad ay payak na pagsasabing "Salamat!" ng mga
Pilipinong tumatanaw ng utang-na-loob sa inyo na nagsasakripisyong rnalayo sa parnilya at mahal sa
buhay, sumusuong sa mga panganib, at pansamantalang umaalis sa bansang minamahal upang
maghanapbuhay sa ibayong dagat.
Kahanga-hanga na sa gitna ng inyong pagpupunyagi sa malalayong bayan--at dahil sa inyong
katatagan, kasipagan, at pagiging malikhain--nakamit ninyo ang tagumpay, dahilan upang kilalanin
kayo para sa Bagong Bayani Awards. Ang kuwento ng inyong nakamit at nagawa para sa pamilya at sa
bayan ay mananatili sa isip at puso ng mamamayang Pilipino at magbibigay-inspirasyon sa mga
susunod na salinlahi.
Kaisa ninyo ako sa pagtataguyod ng isang bansang payapa at maunlad. Kasama ninyo ako sa pagsisikap
na maitatag ang isang pambansang pamayanan na kumukupkop sa lahat ng Pilipino, migrante man o
hindi.
Mabuhay ang ating mga Bagong Bayani!

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR AND EMPLOYMENT
I join the Filipino nation in sincerely congratulating the awardees of the 2014 Bagong Bayani Awards and wish
them luck and success in the next stage of their continuing drive for excellence.
If there is one thing that can be said about the recipients of the Bagong Bayani Awards, it is that they are an
over-achieving lot. They inspire. They are known for their can-do attitude. And they make us Filipinos proud
as a race and a member of the international community.
This Awards elevates you to the ranks of highly-accomplished overseas Filipino workers whose lives have
certainly touched a chord in many a migrant Filipino's heart, instilling in them the virtues of a migrant
worker--hard-working, patriotic, and God-fearing. As Filipinos in foreign lands, you have shown that you can
excel; that you care for your fellow Filipinos; and that you can be an ambassador of goodwill and an agent of
change.
The Bagong Bayani Awards, since it was first conferred in 1984, has sought to recognize these exemplary traits
in the Filipino migrant worker. It has sought to honor excellence and to pay tribute to OFWs whose
outstanding efforts in their work and in their activities in the community have fostered goodwill among the
peoples of the world and have enhanced the image of the Philippines as a country of competent, responsible,
and reliable workers. You are recognized, through this Awards, for your contribution to the socio-economic
development of the Philippines.
This is why this Awards is significant. Your exemplary and extraordinary lives, deeds, acts, services, and
contributions towards the betterment of the business of your employers, of the lives of your fellow workers,
and of the lives of your families will now be on official record with your receipt of this Awards. It confers
upon you a great responsibility to sustain your inspiring and achieving ways because you are now models and
exemplars for other Filipinos to emulate.
My hope, therefore, is that you will value this recognition and accolade as a challenge to excel some more and
to continue your winning ways in the service of our country and our people.
Mabuhay and God bless.

Captain Silvestre G. Notorio, Jr.
57 years old
Antipolo City
Master
Grieg Phils. Inc.
1st Floor, Legaspi Towers 200, Paseo de Roxas, Makati City
On the fateful night of February 27, 2010, Chile experienced a devastating earthquake measuring over
Intensity 8 on the Richter’s Scale. In San Antonio, MV Star Juventas ably steered by Capt. Silvestre G.
Notorio, Jr., Master of the ship, had just started unloading its cargo of wheat at that time. With his vast
expertise onboard, Capt. Notorio managed to keep all officers and crew calm and safe. Through his
excellent leadership, he kept the crew focused on the tasks that had to be immediately done, at the
same time transmitting timely and relevant information to the Contingency Group to update
interested parties. He manifested exemplary ability in handling such emergency situation, deciding on
what to do and carrying it out to completion, having in mind foremost the safety of his men and the
protection of the ship and its cargo.
Its foreign principal, Grieg Shipping AS, shall always be grateful for the decisive action of Capt. Notorio
in San Antonio and for undertaking continuous efforts to maintain the vessel’s seaworthiness.
Capt. Notorio is awarded the Bagong Bayani for Outstanding Employee for his extraordinary
leadership and exceptional decision making skills in an extremely challenging situation.

Captain Leopoldo M. Gromio
59 years old
Malate, Manila
Master
Baliwag Navigation, Inc.
Ermita, Manila
Capt. Leopoldo Monte Gromio, the Master of MV Hanjin Mimitsu, led the successful rescue of nine (9)
passengers of a wooden pleasure boat that sank while sailing the rough seas in Paranagua, Brazil on
January 18, 2014.
The wooden pleasure boat was tossed heavily in the rough waters and substantial swells of the sea
condition, apparently breaking the boat into two. MV Hanjin Mimitsu was fortunately near the area
and its crew sighted the passengers on the rough seas without any flotation device.
In a quick response to the situation, Capt. Gromio reported the incident to the nearest rescue station
and directed his crew to throw the life rings to the passengers and lower the lifeboats at once. He also
controlled and maneuvered the lifeboats himself.
Capt. Gromio is deserving of the Bagong Bayani Award for Outstanding Employee for saving the
precious lives of five women and four men, through his able leadership.

Filipino Crew of Costa Concordia
The Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia of Costa Cruises, measuring 114,137 GT, 290.2 meters long and
costing 450 Million Euro (USD596 Million) was the largest ship built in Italy in 2006.
While sailing across the Mediterranean Sea in January 2012, the vessel hit a reef off the Italian coast and
ran aground at Isola del Giglio, Tuscany. On board were 4,252 persons with 3,206 as passengers and
1,029 crewmembers of which 291 were Filipinos.
Amid the chaos where everyone thought only of their own survival, the Filipino crew gallantly risked
life and limb to first ensure the safety and protection of the passengers. Painstakingly, they helped the
passengers get into the lifeboats which the Filipino crew maneuvered themselves and brought them
ashore. Unmindful of their safety, they made trips back and forth to the ship to rescue the remaining
passengers and crew during the six-hour evacuation. They also courageously searched every nook and
cranny of the ship to ensure that no one was left behind during the rescue operations.
The quality training on international safety standards and their unselfish devotion to the call of duty
enabled the Filipino crew of Costa Concordia to save the precious lives of the passengers and crew.
The 291 Filipino Crew of Costa Concordia is conferred the Bagong Bayani Award for Outstanding
Employee for exhibiting bravery and heroism by risking their own lives for their fellowmen.
