PHILJA Turns 18
PHILJA celebrated its 18th year of foundation on March 12, 2014. The celebration, which had a Filipino festival theme, kicked off with a parade and presentation of 18 Filipino desserts by PHILJA offices–each representing the 18 years of PHILJA’s existence. The PHILJA Chancellor, Justice Adolfo S. Azcuna, delivered the Welcome Remarks thereafter.
Part of the program for the yearly anniversary celebration is the recognition and presentation of awards. Nineteen PHILJA employees received loyalty awards for serving the Academy for 15 and 10 years. Atty. Elmer DG Eleria and Mr. Lope R. Palermo were awarded Model Employees for supervisory and non-supervisory levels, respectively, for their reliable and efficient performance of tasks, exemplary work attitude and willingness to cooperate with co-employees, integrity, and punctuality and excellent attendance. Atty. Ria Corazon H. Berbano-Ablan was honored with the 2014 Chancellor’s Award. Another highlight of the celebration was the launching of the Academy’s portfolio video, an audio visual presentation entitled “An Introduction to PHILJA.”
