PRC honors nation's top professionals

The Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) will honor the nation’s outstanding professionals led by Manila Bulletin President Hermogenes P. Pobre for Accountancy, and Dr. Nilo L. Rosas for Education, in ceremonies marking the 39th Anniversary of the PRC at the historic landmark Manila Hotel Wednesday, June 22.

A lawyer and certified public accountant (CPA), Attorney Pobre, also publisher of the Manila Bulletin, once served as chairman of the PRC while Rosas was a former Commissioner of the same agency and Undersecretary of Education during the administration of President Joseph Estrada.

Pobre’s achievements in accountancy work have been cited by the Board of Accountancy and the Philippine Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) while Rosas’ various achievements in the field of education have been recognized by the Board of Professional Teachers.

Rosas has been cited for his sterling record of achievements in the field of education and a distinguished career in the civil service covering a span of four decades. He was instrumental in the formulation of policies and standards including curriculum development for the various higher education programs, and more importantly, the Policies and Standards for Teacher Education, including the curricula for Bachelor of Elementary Education and Bachelor of Secondary Education which were developed during his incumbency as director of the Bureau of Higher Education, now the Commission on Higher Education.

Rosas obtained the degrees of Doctor of Education, Master of Education in Curriculum and Teaching, and Master of Arts in International Educational Development, all obtained from the Columbia University in the United States under the Fulbright Scholarship, and Master of Arts in Development Education from Stanford University.
