Phil Dormitorio, Farm Supervisor assigned at the  Research Center in Ipil Zamboanga Sibugay  said “  I am proud working with the Department of Agriculture.  This agency allowed my children to finish their studies.”  No matter how big or small the demand of the job is “we just have to work and do our share,” Dormitorio added.  ” Valeria Tolomia,   Sr. Agriculturist assigned at the  Soils Laboratory said she spent half of her life with the DA and proud  to  meet “my one true love in this office. I traveled regionwide  even in some critical areas to get soil samples for  testing for the benefit of the farmers.” She cited official travels outside the region as an indirect incentive and at the same time  an opportunity for learning.  Dormitorio and Tolomia  served the DA for 40 years.

In behalf of Civil Service Commission  Regional Director Macybell Alfaro Sahi, Alvin Araneta said  that the civil servants are  the best resources  to sustain the mandates  of any agency.  “This activity is a manifestation of  DA’s  support to  its employees.  Recognizing the loyalty and continuous service of  the men and women in this agency will encourage them  to  exert more effort in the pursuit of  food security.” 

For his part,  DA Regional Executive Director  Eduardo B. Holoyohoy said “we are facing the challenge of food staple sufficiency  in 2013.  I am sure that  we can attain this with all your support and with the  divine intervention because weather condition is not within our  control.” RED Holoyohoy also  inducted the newly elected set of officers for the DA’s Multipurpose Cooperative with Ferdinand Gamorot as the Chairman, Engr. Luisita M. Abella as Vice Chairman and  five Board of Directors namely: Edgardo B. Tabal, Jaime T. Delfino, Constancio G. Alama,  Engr. Gwendolyn  B. Folgo and Engr.
