ABOUT General Joana

Why General Joana?

Residents of General Santos City are referred to as Generals. This concept was spread when the city produced a TV show Today With The Generals as part of the Yaman Gensan Celebration. As one of the hosts, I started getting used to the sound of General Joana Grace Banting-Lapore  since that was how our Direk Egai Cadiente instructed us to introduce ourselves.

Who is General Joana?

  • I was born and raised in General Santos City.

  • As an educator,  I equip college students to be ready to make a life, not just a living.
