PPS Board bade farewell to two colleagues
The PPS BOD for 2009-2010 had to make some adjustments with regards to reassigning of tasks. Dr. Christian Joseph "Chris" Cumagun resigned to pursue his post doctorate studies in Japan while Ms. Ariene "Yhen" Castillo requested for a leave of absence because of a new job in Singapore.
As BOD officers/members, they were very dedicated and worked hard to achieve and promote the objectives of the society. Dr. Cumagun was the editor in chief of the Journal of Tropical Plant Pathology while Ms. Castillo was the society's secretary. To acknowledge their untiring support to the society, the other officers and board members hosted a separate despedida for each of them.
