90's Favorite Miss Bohol Sandugo Titlists

That's me hosting the first ever Miss Sandugo Pageant in 1990
The 90's decade ushered the birth of the Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant, the highlight of the annual Sandugo Festival that celebrates the Blood Compact between Datu Sikatuna and Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legaspi

The pageant enjoyed its heyday during the 90's and drew jampacked crowds not only from the capital city of Tagbilaran but also from the participating towns from all over Bohol. 

Hosting the first Miss Bohol Sandugo Pageant meant not only a place in Bohol pageantry historical data but also a validation that I was capable of hosting the most prestigious beauty competition in the province

Anyway, in a fun poll among my blog readers that would determine the favorite Miss Bohol Sandugo titleholders of the 90s's, two ladies tied for the top position 

The first one is Tiffany Matuod Yap  who graduated with a BS Psychology degree from the University of San Carlos, Cebu City in 1996. 

She is married to Glenn Glarino, a professor in Psychology at the University of San Carlos in Cebu City with whom she has three kids, namely; Frankl, 15, David, 13 and Aubrey, 3 years old.

Presently, she is an HR practitioner connected with Cebu Holdings Inc, a real estate company affiliated with Ayala Land

In a tie with Tiffany as favorite Miss Bohol Sandugo titleholder for the 90's decade is Vanessa Joyce Evardone 

Bambi, as she is known to family and friends, has always wanted to be a doctor since she was a child. 

After graduating from medical school in 2002, she was granted a two- year post-graduate medical internship at UP-PGH (University of the Phillippines- Phil. General Hospital). 

She chose to stay for internship in Cebu at Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (formerly known as Southern Islands Hospital), a 1000-bed government-owned public hospital. 

It was a year-long internship, and during our graduation I was awarded the Most Outstanding Post-Graduate Intern, and also awarded Most Outstanding in Pediatrics & Ophthalmology. 

In 2004, she did not only take and pass the Philippine Licensure Examination for Physicians but also clinch 14th place in the nationwide professional board examinations. 

She then flew to the United States where she had her residency training in Internal Medicine at Caritas Carney Hospital/Tufts University in Boston, Massachussets with medical ICU clinical rotation at Yale New Haven Hospital in New Haven, Connecticut. 

In 2009,  Bambi was awarded with Excellence in Teaching by the Tufts University Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts after being chosen by the Tufts University medical students for the award. 

Presently, she is a hospitalist physician specializing in inpatient care of adult patients (co-manages surgical patients, medical ward patients, cardiac unit patients, post-anesthetic care patients and ICU/CCU patients), at one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in the US, the William W. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. 

She had been given a Press Ganey score of 100% based on Performance Excellence in Healthcare, belonging to the top score-holding medical doctors of the state of Connecticut and the entire United States.
