Mayor Santiago honors local heroine
San Fernando City Edwin Santiago on September 10 led the commemoration of the 143rd birth anniversary of Kapampangan heroine Nicolasa Dayrit-Panlilio.
The Pampanga politiko lauded Panlilio for her heroism during the American occupation.
“Paulit-ulit natin itong ginagawa, faithfully every year to ensure na mainculcate sa kabataan ‘yung values na pwede nilang gayahin from our local heroes, hindi lang kay Nicolasa,” Santiago said.
The local heroine and women’s icon nursed sick and wounded Filipino soldiers who fought against Americans.
Panlilio was also said to have interceded in the confrontation between General Antonio Luna and General Tomas Mascardo.
