Pursuing Greater Heights: The EHRDP Scholarship Success of Ms. Maricel Endico

   Growing up in a family with very limited financial resources, Maricel Endico’s dream to grasp greater heights through education was never shaken. As eldest among the four siblings, she had a goal set in mind to save her family from the bondage of poverty.

   Destiny seemed to cooperate with her humble undertakings. With persistence, she finished Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Education at Surigao State College of Technology (SCCT) despite the toughness of being a working student.

   Blessed with mental acuity, she passed the Licensure for Teachers (LET) and the Career Service Professional Examination in the same year. These achievements paved way to her employment at LGU Mainit as Agricultural Technologist.

   In pursuit of equipping herself with efficient extension delivery services, Maricel was closely working with Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) – Caraga in year 2004.

   She never had expected that working with ATI could take her to greater heights, wider professional opportunities and higher personal growth.

   Maricel took-up Master in Environmental Management thru the ATI’s Expanded Human Resource Development Program (EHRDP) in 2013.

   One of the highlights of her scholarship journey was the impact and recognition of her research study entitled Assessment of Mercury Contamination in Sediments and Common Carp in Selected River Mouth of Lake Mainit, Philippines. The study was presented in an international conference and accepted for international publication for release in 2015.

   Today, Maricel joins the pool of college professors in her alma mater SCCT. Maricel considers ATI Caraga as saving grace in taking her dreams to greater heights. The completion of her master’s degree served as an entryway to brighter door of opportunities and higher professional growth.
