Queen's welcome awaits Shamcey in General Santos
The General Santos City government is getting ready to give this year’s 2011 Bb. Pilipinas-Universe Shamcey Supsup a grand welcome when she returns from Manila.
Supsup, who was born and grew up in village of Katangawan, is considered by the residents of General Santos City as their newest “treasure.”
Supsup, a magna cum laude graduate from the University of the Philippines and a topnotcher in the architecture board exam, won the title last Sunday.
Glenville Gonzales, tourism officer of the city government, said preparations are underway for a motorcade that will bring the 24-year-old pretty “General” around the city’s streets. “General” is a term used to identify a certain resident of the city.
Gonzales said Supsup will be paraded in the city streets to let the residents show their gratitude and for them to see their new treasure.
“She brought glory and honor to General Santos City. She is worthy of emulation. She deserves to be honored,” Gonzales told The STAR in a phone interview.
“Our city is really a ‘home of champions.’”
Gonzales was referring to boxing champions Manny Pacquiao and Nonito Donaire, ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother winners Gerald Anderson and Melai Cantiveros.
Gonzales said the city government is seriously considering to grant the “Ambassadress of General Santos City” title to Supsup.
