Dr. Romina A. Danguilan and Rowena M. Tolentino were awarded with the highest honors at the joint graduation ceremonies of the Public Management Development Program (PMDP) Senior Executives Class (SEC) and Middle Managers Class (MMC) last 30 January 2015 at the DAP Conference Center in Tagaytay City.

Danguilan, Medical Specialist IV at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute (NKTI), led the graduating class SEC Batch 3 (Sinagtala) comprised of 25 government senior executives.  She also received a Diploma in Development Management and the Most Outstanding Capstone Paper award.

In her valedictory address, Danguilan urged her fellow graduates to apply their learnings from the PMDP and make a difference in their respective agencies. The true test of learning, she says, lies in the future when the PMDP scholars’ agencies reap rewards from their achievement and ultimately, when the people they  serve feel or experience that benefit.
