She served as President to Calaca Academy, the Mabini Junior College, Puericulture Center of Taal, and the Civic League. As a religious person, she also served as Vice President of the Catholic Woman’s League. Lualhati was also Vice President of the Alumni Association of Taal Elementary School and member of the board at Rizal College, where she was previously directress and dean. Aside from being named Rural Banker of the Year by Rural Bankers’ Association of the Philippines, she was elected councilor of Taal Municipality. Doña Conchita Lualhati’s life is marked with many glowing noble achievements, merited with several awards for being an outstanding citizen in the field of education and civic leadership.
