DENREU president Alvin Gatbonton (in wheelchair) expressed admiration for Sampulna for being an epitome of an excellent public servant with a heart for ordinary workers having risen from the ranks in the DENR. From a tree marker, Sampulna held several positions in the agency until he was tasked to take on the highest position as Acting Secretary.
