Cavite Board Member Ivee Asuncion Reyes honors Mars rover mission engineer
Cavite Board Member Ivee Asuncion Reyes is proud that a Caviteno helped launched a historic rover on Mars.
In a Facebook post, Reyes hailed the achievement of Engineer Edward Gonzales, a Filipino-American who was part of the team that launched NASA’s Perseverance rover mission to Mars.
Reyes shared a copy of the provincial board resolution honoring Gonzales’ achievement.
Gonzales is the son of Edgardo Asuncian Gonzales, who hails from Kaong, Silang, Cavite.
Reyes said the younger Gonzales’ achievements give Silang and Cavite residents more reason to be proud.
He inspires the people of the province amid the pandemic, she said.
Cavite is over the moon with pride!
“Araw-araw po nating ipinagmamalaki na isa tayong Caviteño, na isa tayong Silangueño, lalo na po at may mga kababayan tayo na nagpapakita ng galing at husay sa iba’t ibang larangan.
Ngayon Lunes po sa regular na pagpupulong ng Sanggunian Panlalawigan ng Cavite ay kinilala po natin ang naiambag na galing ng ating kababayan na si Engr. Edward Gonzales sa Mars 2020 Rover Mission.
Si Engr. Edward Gonzales po ay anak ng ating kababayan na si G. Edgardo Asuncion Gonzales na taga Kaong, Silang Cavite.
Sa gitna ng pagsubok at pandemya, nakakakuha po tayo ng inspirasyon sa mga tulad ni Engr. Edward Gonzales.
Mabuhay ka, Kabayan!
#silangueño,” Reyes posted.
