The College of Economics and Management (CEM) capped its week-long foundation day celebration with a virtual fellowship event among faculty and staff last July 30, 2021 via Zoom.
Over 142 participants coming from the different offices and departments enjoyed a series of virtual games as well as special presentations from the new faculty members of the Department of Agribusiness Management and Entrepreneurship (DAME), Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics (DAAE), Department of Economics (DE), and the Institute of Cooperatives and Bio-Enterprise Development (ICOPED). The college also awarded its outstanding personnel for their excellent contribution in either research and extension or administrative work.
Assistant Professor Paul Joseph B. Ramirez of DE received the Outstanding Researcher (Senior Category) Award while the Outstanding Extension Personnel were given to Associate Professor Cesar B. Quicoy of DAAE (Senior Category) and Ms. Adriann M. Quilloy of ICOPED (Junior Category). The ICOPED Extension and Public Service Program also received the CEM Outstanding Extension Team. In addition, Ms. Clarissa S. Venezuela from DAAE received the Outstanding Administrative Personnel for the Supervisory Category while Ms. Michelle N. Tayoto was the recipient for the Non-Supervisory Category. Lastly, Dean Agham C. Cuevas of CEM and Dr. Yolanda T. Garcia of DE were this year’s CEM Loyalty Awardees. This was given in honor of their years of service and dedication to the college.
The event closed with a congratulatory message from Dean Cuevas to the awardees and to the CEM Foundation Day working committee. As this was the first college-wide fellowship event for the faculty and staff since the pandemic, Dean Cuevas hopes to have a face-to-face fellowship event once the pandemic situation improves.
