Dad’s legacy lives on: Rico Golez surprised by school marker
Parañaque Vice Mayor Rico Golez was surprised to learn that a building at the Parañaque National High School was named after his father, the late former national security adviser Roilo Golez.
Golez shared on Facebook photos of him posing near a marker of Golez Building during his visit to the public high school.
“Hindi ko inaasahan Eto… hindi ko rin hinihingi… puro apelido ng mga dating Department of Education Secretary ang nakalagay pero biglang Iba ang Nakita ko… GOLEZ BUILDING,” he gushed.
Golez said he learned from talking to the school principal that it was his father who had the building built when he was a congressman.
More than pushing for the construction of school buildings, Golez said the school principal was thankful that his father authored the law that converted the former Parañaque Municipal High School into a national high school.
“Sana ay magkaroon din ako pagkakataon makapag patayo ng gusali tulad nito na magagamit ng Ilang generation,” Golez said.
