It needs leaders who have the heart, as well as the strength to take swift action, armed with integrity, genuine care and solid determination, all traits of a true-blooded Kiwanian.
With her track record in the Kiwanis community, then and now, it’s undoubtedly, the Governor elect Glenda Hufano will not just be an icon in Philippine Luzon District but also internationally soon after.
Recently in the biggest event of Kiwanis this year, her company was recognized for supporting the indigents and marginalized. Along with incumbent Governor Johnny Domino and District Treasurer Richard Agbayani, Glenda received the plaque of appreciation for the unwavering support also for the welfare of the children.
For this coming February 17, 2023 in Okada, Manila, Glenda will be recognized again as one of the awardees and part of Asia’s Modern Hero Awards alongside with other notable honorees for her advocacy and mandate of Unity, Transparency and Integrity.
Glenda in her tenure is pushing for for Unity, Transparency and Integrity. Ms. Hufano has been a Kiwanis Club President for 4 consecutive years and a Lieutenant Governor for 2019-2020. She got several awards and citations from different organizations here and abroad. She helped and support most of Kiwanis organizations in different clubs in the Philippines. High decision-making skill is one of Ms. Hufano’s outstanding traits on top of being a reliable and trustworthy individual.
“My past , my business and my team (friends and colleagues) won’t control me in terms of running in this position, its neutral to be in the middle that not all people won’t agree with you but the mere fact one has the heart in helping the community and its people- one can’t alter or change someone’s decision because of the simple reason about those 3 things. Because we know that a leader must have the heart and a mere high dedication to what he or she’s doing – a pre-requisite for a person to run in any organization’s position. “ – Ms. Hufano said.
According to Engr. Grace Bondad Nicolas who is also part of Kiwanis, “Glenda is someone who will be there for you no matter what is the circumstance. Her heart is genuine to help not just the indigent children but everyone in her own capacity without asking anything in return. She’s the leader that you want to be with. Very humble and soft spoken. Worthy for all the awards she keeps on receiving.”
Ms. Glenda Hufano, a mother of 4 young professionals, is someone to trust a position with, for everything that she does, she lifts it up with the Lord. She believes on Isaiah 49:23: “She who trusts in the Lord will never be disappointed”
