“The activity aims to recognize the 2022 Honor Awards Program regional winners. This is also an opportunity for them to share their accomplishments with their fellow regional winners,” he said.
Of the regional winners, four are from the Department of Education (DepEd), who won under the Dangal Ng Bayan category; one is from the Local Government Unit of Libacao, Aklan, who won under the CSC Pag-Asa Award; and the 6th winner is a group coming from a Government-Owned and Controlled Corporation (GOCC).
Most of the winners from DepEd- Aklan are holding high positions in their respective schools, who have initiated good and exemplary practices and accomplishments as teachers which not only impacted positively on learners but on the community as a whole.
