We'd like to give a salute to the man who made us realized that Philippine e-Extension and ATIiNteractive possible. He made himself a part of the ATI family and pushed us to embrace change and think outside the box. With him, we were able to push through with e-learning and expanded it further to embrace the different components of the e-Extension Program for Agriculture and Fisheries. We were able to put up the Farmers' Contact Center, which now serves as a frontline helpdesk of the Department of Agriculture for farm and business advisory services and a technical support for e-Learning.

Who would have thought that with these initiatives, the Agricultural Training Institute has been recognized not just locally but globally. See our related posts:

Hence, we'd like to give a toast to the man who has been our mentor, my former college instructor, and now our e-Learning Process Advisor, Mr. Jose Rey Y. Alo, for being one of this year's Distinguished Alumni from the College of Development Communication of the University of the Philippines Los Baños.

Thank you and congratulations, Sir Rey!
