|Miss Bohol 1999 Jenifer Ejoc|
As we await the formal presentation of the 2015 Miss Bohol official candidates, Your Blogger is reminded of the tall and willowy beauty, Jenifer Apayor Ejoc who gave the Municipality of Catigbian, her hometown, its first Miss Bohol title when she was named the 1999 Miss Bohol Sandugo- Mutya ng Pilipinas
Aside from the coveted crown, Jen also won a handful of corporate awards. She declined the invitation to compete as Bohol’s candidate in the Mutya ng Plipinas- Central Visayas regional search citing conflict with school schedules.
Jenifer eventually finished her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science degree in 2001 and took her BSED qualifying thereafter so that makes her a double bachelor’s degree holder.
She then took her Masters in Public Administration but decided to take a break.
Love beckoned and she tied the knot with her college sweetheart Dustin Michael Sarmiento in April 2003. They have two kids, Dana Mariaye and Diana Mave. She resumed her educational pursuit and so took her Masters in Political Science at the Cebu City- based University of San Carlos.

She handled Political Science and other Social Sciences classes for college students at the Holy Name University before she joined her hubby in Dubai, United Arab Emirates a few years back. By the way, Jen turned out to be one of my closest friends when I taught in HNU for six wonderful years. The friendship was cemented because we were always assigned in committees during special campus activities.

In fact, we were picked as the representatives of the College of Arts & Sciences in an inter- college traditional dance contest among faculty members back in February 2010. We may not have won the top plum but we definitely earned the approval of those who saw us dance the Kuradang.
Cheers my friend & continue to inspire people
