The University was also honored to have Manila City Mayor Francisco “Isko” Moreno Domagoso as guest speaker. He expressed his congratulations to all the awardees as well as to the institution for holding this celebration for 18 years.
“May this occasion serves as a reminder for us to continue serving our community with utmost passion and sincerity”, said Mayor Isko and ended his message with health and safety reminders for the COVID-19.
The Quality Awards Day is not just dedicated to give credit to the sincere and quality efforts of the faculty and staff manifested in their service and work output but also to honor the University’s models of excellence and quality Dona Carmen De Luna, one of CEU’s founders and its past leaders, Dona Generosa De Leon and former President Lourdes Echauz.
“”We laud all sectors of our community who are rallying to keep our services in CEU not just alive but robust and thriving. For me to say thank you to you is presumptuous, I am not the recipient of the service you do. Our students, our community, our nation are the real recipients. It is only on their behalf that I express profound and heartfelt gratitude and I also ask God to give us the strength and guide us to continue that service,” said Dr. Ma. Cristina Padolina, CEU President and Chief Academic Officer in her message.
The event was spearheaded by its overall chair, Dr.Olivia Limuaco, Vic President for CEU Makati with the assistance of Dr. Charito Bermido, Dean, School of Medical Tecnology and Dr. Erna yabut, Vice President for Research and Evaluation as consultant.
