Mr. Ruben Lanot, a Claret alumnus and a dedicated basketball coach was awarded as one of Mang Inasal’s 2018 Gawad Pilipinoy. Gawad Pilipinoy is the brand’s way of honoring exceptional individuals who are the epitome of positive Filipino values. This award also recognizes galing ng Pinoy through the honorees’ selfless service and involvement that improve the lives of the underprivileged.


Coach Ruben, as he is fondly called, trained young athletes with the necessary skills and value. He even provided them with jerseys and shoes. He devoted much of his time teaching the athletes the importance of discipline, sportsmanship and building friendship through basketball. His passion for the sport paved the way for him to teach life’s lessons and inspire the kids to achieve their dreams. He found coaching basketball as his mission through his “Hoop Dreams” advocacy.


He never gets tired even after a day’s grueling training and practice. Truly, a mark of a true Claretian-a man of unwavering faith and always afire with the mission!
