Buenviaje, selected the awardees in various fields of specialization such as Leadership Empowerment in Education, Entrepreneurship and Employment Creation, Corporate Social Responsibility, Women Empowerment, Arts and Culture, Public Service, Poverty Alleviation and Human Development, and Science and Technology.
Dr. Ernesto T. Nicdao, former DHVCAT president and awardee for Leadership Empowerment in Education, said he will treasure the distinction throughout his life because it was given by the institution he served for almost 21 years.
