Tarlac State University’s Multi-Purpose Cooperative (TSU-MPC) received the Hall of Fame award in recognition of its exemplary performance as a model cooperative in the Tarlac Province during the Gawad Tarlakhenyo 2022.
TSU-MPC board chairperson Dr. Agnes M. Macaraeg received the award on behalf of the cooperative last January 18, 2023, at the Tarlac Capitol Center Events Place in Brgy. San Roque, Tarlac City.
She presented the award to the TSU community earlier today (January 24) at the flag-raising ceremony in front of the Administration Building at the Main Campus.
In an interview, Dr. Macaraeg affirmed that the consistency of being an outstanding cooperative led the university to qualify for the prestigious award.
“Kaya tayo naka-receive ng Hall of Fame award kasi we were consistent for three years of being awarded as Top 1 Outstanding Cooperative in the entire province,” she said.
Dr. Macaraeg also emphasized that the TSU-MPC maintained excellence in service for the general membership.
Gawad Tarlakhenyo is an award-giving body organized by the Provincial Government of Tarlac through the Provincial Cooperative and Enterprise Development Office (PCEDO). The body believes that the exemplary performance of cooperatives and entrepreneurial society can be recognized through this commendation ceremony.
In its 9th year, Gawad Tarlakhenyo granted special recognition to the cooperatives, entrepreneurs, Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), barangay councils, farmers' associations, and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) who exerted efforts in their respective fields, particularly in sustaining their business operations to best serve their members and immediate communities during the new normal situation.
Moreover, it aims to recognize "Enterprise Industry Stakeholders" who incite positive change and development in the province.
