P/CDT IAN POYAOAN LIMBAWAN, from Baguio City, is Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA) "Hinirang" Class of 2021 Top 8 and was named Honorable Cadet First Captain.

P/CDT Limbawan, one of the members of the HINIRANG CLASS of 2021 or the Chosen Ones, took his first glimpse of the world on the 14th day of September 1998 in the City of Baguio. Born as the eldest son of PLT ROGELIO T LIMBAWAN, a police officer from Lamut, Ifugao, and Mrs. Jesusa P. Limbawan, a Laundry Service Cashier from San Carlos City, Pangasinan, he was early exposed to the difficulties of life: difficulties that fueled his determination in achieving his goals.

With such determination coupled with the call to lead, he was designated as the Regimental Executive Officer and soon climbed the echelon and became the Regimental Commander. Looking back to his track, he never failed to display exemplified excellence, both in academic and leadership aspects.

He finished his primary education at Aguinaldo Elementary School as the Class Salutatorian despite his responsibilities as the President of the Pupil Government Organization and an active Platoon Leader of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.

When PCDT LIMBAWAN finished his secondary education at Pines City National High School, he again kept the Salutatorian title amidst being the President of the Supreme Student Government, both in school and Division Levels, and an accountable Senior Crew Leader of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.

Although exposed to the different co-curricular activities such as Poster Making Contests, Math and Science Quiz Bees, Cheer and Dance competitions, and different jamborees by the Boy Scouts of the Philippines, he never took his Academics for granted.

Upon reaching college, he opted to take the BS-Criminology course at the University of the Cordilleras wherein he continued to excel as a Dean's Lister Scholar while joining different clubs and organizations in pursuit of enhancing his skills in leadership. Granted with multiple talents and achievements he was, but PCDT LIMABAWAN's life did not go well as it may seem.

There were times that his parents faced difficulties in supporting his study and that of his younger brothers. To alleviate the circumstance, he strived to excel in his studies to avail the scholarship from the school.

Another opportunity came when he knew about the Philippine National Police Academy while taking up the course in college.

Taking the chance that faith vested upon him, he took the PNPA Cadet Admission Test and managed to ace among the thousands of Filipino youths who aspired to become a cadet and took his oath as an official member of CCPNPA on May 01, 2017.

Through ups and downs, PCDT LIMBAWAN trudged the steep road of becoming a refined individual for four years, ready to serve as a police commissioned officer just like his father. From the first 'tion' or the Reception to the day of the Graduation, everything pays off as the golden anahaw falls unto his shoulders.
