Aurora State College of Technology has taken one more step towards its goal of improving the lives of Aurorans. Last July 8, 2016, the college has officially received the DOLE-YES LIVELIHOOD PROJECT from DOLE Aurora.
In front of students and college officials, a ceremony was held witnessing the Dr. Doracie B. Zoleta-Nantes received the project from Engr. Pedro S. Fernando Jr (DOLE Chief-Aurora).The said project would be used in the “Fish-P
rocessing of Fishery Aquatic Products by Post-Harvest Technology/ Fish Preservation Technology”. As the most potent arm to utilize the equipment, Department of Agriculture and Aquatic Sciences ,headed by Dr. Eduardo F. Macose, was assigned to oversee the project.
Reports on the status of Livelihood Program were also delivered by Mr. Antonio D. Bolivar and Mr. Romel Ladiero, who oversee the Food Processing and HRM Cafeteria projects respectively.
This is considered as a good gift to the ASCOT community in Casiguran where the project is set to be implemented under the direct supervision of Maam Nancy Lota, a faculty in Casiguran Campus. The grant was through the efforts of Dr. Eduardo F. Macose (DAAS Director), Alma Bayudan (OSS Director) and Dr. Doracie B. Zoleta-Nantes (College President).
