Almost 25 Years Ago

Posted on July 3, 2018

What the Distinguished Service Plaque says almost sums up my career in the RizalTech.

Almost 25 years ago I received this Distinguished Service Plaque during the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Rizal Technological Colleges, formerly the College of Rizal. After the Celebration I brought the Plaque home and forgot all about it until I found it tucked in one corner of an old, really old, turntable in our old house. The citation reads like this:
