    Jefferson is a current Special Rescue Unit BFP-SRU Officer of Bureau of Fire Protection Regional Head Quarters R4-A. Before he got into his present career and was assigned to the regional headquarters, he used to work as Fire Officer 1 at the Bureau of Fire Protection- Jalajala Fire Station. He also became one of the Academic Instructors at St. Anne College Lucena, Inc. in 2014 where he taught PE subjects. Though he loves teaching, his passion for serving others made him decide to pursue a career in the government. This calling led him to undergo a series of training such as basic rescue training course, fire basic recruit course, and he even underwent training as an air force reservist for him to be qualified as a fireman.

    “St. Anne College became my stepping stone in achieving my dream. During my college days, I had experienced down in the bumps. These challenges had given me life learnings that molded me to become a professional and stronger person today. One of the most memorable experiences I had was when I became a Cadet Officer. Being a Cadet Officer has taught me modesty and kindness, embracing responsibilities, that humility can bring goodness within one person. And that in order to be respected, one must respect others. The training given to us as criminology students were almost similar to the degree of level of the training in the military. These made me a stronger person, mentally and physically. It molded my excellence into character. It had prepared me for life, by increasing my threshold towards stress and adversities. I also realized that learning is a continuous process. Many people once they passed any certification or attain a degree, would feel they have achieved the pinnacle of life. However, in reality, it is not. It is only a small part of the lifelong learning process.”


    “I could say that my stay in SACLI was really memorable and a good one. My professors always go the extra mile so students can acquire and learn the lessons very well. They did not only help us to be academically inclined, but they also instilled in us good morals and values which I believe is the greatest lessons of all”

    Jefferson’s advice to all the SACLIANS is to always find happiness in anything that they do. That in order to succeed, one must make a clear vision and make way through that dream with a strong and positive mindset.


    During her student days, it was her goal to excel with passion in everything she does. Even when she’s already working as a law enforcer, her dedication and work ethics in her profession were beyond words. In fact, she has received numerous and highest distinction awards such as Medalya ng Papuri (2020), Medalya ng Kasanayan (2019), and Medalya ng Kagalingan (2016 and 2019).

    “Despite these achievements, being excellent in all aspects of life is useless if not accompanied with passion because at the end of the day, it is not your knowledge alone that will benefit the people surrounding you; but with your acts of passion and kindness to render public service at all means, be it big or small,” she explained.

    Ms. Munar is also truly delighted that this profession has opened windows of equal chances for a female officer like her, who is also willing to take the challenges and risks in order to give future commendable public service that the people truly deserve.

    “SACLI imparted me the appropriate knowledge and skills needed in my chosen profession and has provided me the essential characteristics and core values that honed and prepared me to who I am today.”


    “ I chose BS Criminology because ever since I was young, I’ve always been wanted to become a policewoman. That’s why I enrolled in SACLI because I know that they provide quality education and they competent students and graduates.”

    She also shares that she is excited to meet new people as she enters this new chapter of her student life. And she hopes, together with her fellow SACLIans, she could be a role model who demonstrates confidence, leadership, and who can do good things who could inspire others.

    “I see myself 10 years from now wearing the PNP uniform and working for the government, helping in partnership in the community towards the accomplishment of a safer place to live, work, and do business”, she added.
