Congratulations to Riosahlie V. Madrid, DVM, for being named one of the Honor Awards Program (HAP) Regional Winners for the Outstanding Public Officials and Employees (Dangal ng Bayan) Award!

Doc Rio, as we affectionately call her, serves as an Instructor I in the School of Agriculture and Aquatic Sciences and Director of External Affairs, Internationalization, and Alumni Office at ASCOT.

Her dedication and hard work have not only benefited our college but the entire Aurora community. From teaching animal science to spearheading the Livestock and Small Ruminant Project, submitting proposals to DOLE and NDA, and establishing MOUs with international training agencies, Doc Rio is a true inspiration to us all.

Thank you for your outstanding service and congratulations on a well-deserved recognition as one of the Honor Awards Program Regional Winners for the Dangal ng Bayan Award! We look forward to the awarding ceremony in September!

**The Civil Service Commission Regional Office III recognizes exemplary work performance by government officials and employees, and the conferment of honor awards serves as motivation for further improvement and deeper involvement in public service.
