While others desire to follow the footsteps of Ensign Kathleen Rose Ea and Lt. Mariel Robles, one cadet is already a step closer of living the dream.

1CL Chester Allan dela Cruz, who hails from Barangay EJC Montilla, Tacurong City, is part of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Masidlawin Class 2020 to graduate next year.

Dela Cruz is currently in the city joining the PMA Team of Examiners for the Entrance Examination today, August 25, 2019 (Sunday).

In May of this year, Ensign Ea, daughter of a tricycle driver from San Pablo, graduated Top 19 of Mabalasik Class 2019.

The year before Ea, Lt. Robles also graduated from PMA and took the distinction as the first female PMA graduate of Tacurong.

Robles is also the first product of Tacurong Testing Center for PMA Exam.
