Commemoration Ceremony

To commemorate the valuable contribution and legacy of the DA-BAR late directors Dr. Jeminiano R. Escaño and Dr. Eliseo R. Ponce, the first and fourth floors of the RDMIC Building will be renamed to JR Escaño and ER Ponce halls, respectively. A simple ceremony in this regard was held on 25 January 2024 witnessed by the DA undersecretary for bureaus Dr. Mercedita A. Sombilla, DA-BAR management and staff led by director Junel B. Soriano, as well as the families of Dr. Escaño and Dr. Ponce.

The DA-BAR seminar series was also renamed to WD Dar Seminar Series to honor the contribution of the bureau’s first director Dr. William D. Dar. He also kicked off this year’ seminar series as the first resource speaker with the topic Regenerative Agriculture.

Jovita M. Escaño, wife of the late Dr. Escaño, and Atty. Lezyl B. Ponce, daughter of the late Dr. Ponce, expressed their gratitude and appreciation for this commemoration activity. Likewise, Dr. Dar also gave a short message for the recognition given to him.

This activity was held in the newly renamed JR Escaño Hall.
