San Manuel of today is the fruit of so many minds, effort and sacrifices. Credit goes to the first pioneers of the municipality who bravely settled into this locality in the midst of the dreadful disease called malaria prevailing in this area during those times.
Worth mentioning is the humility of the native (Kalingas) during those time, being motivated by their dreams for a better, happy and prosperous community. Last but not the least, to the pioneer leaders; the first appointed mayor was Ignacio Mendoza, followed by the first elected Mayor Fermin A. Santiago, followed by mayors Mariano B. Garcia, Agaton Salvador, Paulino A. Domingo, Reynaldo P. Abesamis, Jaime H. Domingo and the incumbent Faustino Michael Carlos T. Dy, III. Final credits go to the untiring effort of other government servants and the tireless sacrifices and unequalled cooperation of the citizen of San Manuel.
