An Olongapeña was recognized by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo recently in her State of the Nation Address at the Batasan Pambansa, Quezon City.

Jessica Barlomento, a resident of Rodriguez Extension in Barangay New Kalalake, started as a lady welder and now works as Supplies Officer in Hanjin Heavy Industries Corporation (HHIC), a Korean shipbuilding firm. Barlomento, along with the three other lady welders were commended by the president as one of 1.7 million who graduated in technical and vocational courses in 2007 now gainfully employed.

She took up Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW NC-II ) in November 2006 and graduated in February 2007 at the Olongapo Skills Training Center.

Barlomento serves as model for our fellowmen, especially women, to continue pursuing goals, overcoming gender differences.
