DA-PCC Deputy Executive Director for Production and Research Dr. Claro N. Mingala was recently named Outstanding Veterinarian in the 2022 Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Awards last July 29 held at The Manila Hotel with the theme PRC@49: “Forging Ahead Towards Professionalism, Resiliency, and Competitiveness.”

Dr. Mingala, who was also recently conferred the rank of Scientist IV under the Civil Service Commission (CSC) and Department of Science and Technology (DOST), was recognized for his commitment and noteworthy contributions in the fields of veterinary research and animal biotechnology while serving farming communities as a PCCean. He is among the few selected individuals to receive the PRC Outstanding Professionals of the Year Award for 2022.

The two other categories include Outstanding Accredited Professional Organization of the Year and the Nubla Excellence Award.

“Professionalism, resiliency, competitiveness–all these are distinct qualities highly required among professionals today to be able to come to terms with the changing work environment,” Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) Secretary Hon. Bienvenido Laguesma said in a written message read by DOLE Legislative and Legal Affairs Undersecretary Atty. Felipe Egargo Jr.

“It is my hope that you will continue to be effective models of professionalism, resiliency, and competitiveness as we all respond to present-day challenges. In so doing, we inspire others to become beacons of hope and change,” he underscored.

Beyond the recognition, the PRC awards aim to breed the values of professionalism, integrity, responsibility, competence, and excellence among workers in different fields of discipline while championing nationwide progress.
