The Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) has extended a distinguished James J. Meany award to Dr. Joselito B. Diaz, RGC, who is currently the Director of the Admissions and Scholarships Administration Office (ASAO) of the University of St. La Salle for his exemplary service as an accreditor in over 25 survey visits and consultancies. This award is a testament for his invaluable contribution to the growth of accreditation in the country and for a continuing passion for excellence. Dr. Diaz started his commitment as an accreditor of secondary private schools in the Philippines since 1990 when he was a guidance counselor.
The said distinguished national award was presented and received by Dr. Diaz from, no other than the President of PAASCU, Fr. Joel E. Tabora, SJ, and the Executive Director, Miss Concepcion V. Pijano, during the PAASCU General Assembly held last November 10, 2016 at the Century Park Hotel in Manila.
