The HR Educators’ Association of the Philippines (HREAP) recently recognized the Ten Outstanding HR Students of the Philippines (TOHRS) for 2017 for their potential in the field of human resources.
The students were Hazel Joy D. Sabando (De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde), Rubeliz Marie B. Imaysay (Ateneo de Davao University), Johann Angelica S. Calimlim (University of Santo Tomas), Coleen Danielle C. Natividad (Southville International School and Colleges), Abegail A. Limbo and Luis Christian R. Rodriguez (Far Eastern University), Erwin E. Marasigan (Polytechnic University of the Philippines), Jean Mae G. Omero (South Philippine Adventist College), Tom Harvey S. Pamintuan (Holy Angel University), and Diane E. Ranoco (Bicol University).
In an interview with Sabando, a Human Resources junior, honor scholar, and presently the marketing and sponsorship head of the college’s HR Management Society, she said TOHRS “is like an embellishment to add more color to me. This award is like a sprinkle to a cupcake and the actual cupcake is how I manage myself being a student, scholar and student leader at the same time.”
The HREAP is a professional organization of human resource educators in the country, which aims to promote the development of human resource program in higher educational institutions in the Philippines. It aims to strengthen industry-academe partnership in developing curricular offerings of universities and colleges, gather and strengthen collaboration among human resource educators in the country, publish researches related to the human resources practices both in public and private organizations, and organize seminars, conferences, learning and development programs for educators, students and professionals.
This is the second year HREAP is handing out this recognition.
The achievers will be formally honored during the 7th Annual HR Students International Convention to be held in Baguio City sometime next month.
