2nd Lagerway Awards for Communication Excellence
The Philippines Communication Society congratulates the winners of the 2nd Lagerway Awards for Communication Excellence awarded by the Communication Foundation for Asia (CFA) last May 5, 2022 via Facebook livestream, during its week-long 54th Founding Anniversary celebration.
Established in 1968 as a non-profit organization, CFA is a pioneer in development communication and traces its origins to 1960, when the Social Communications Center was born with the publication of the Philippine Catholic digest. Both organizations were founded by Fr. Cornelio Lagerway, MSC, a Dutch missionary, in collaboration with his mission partner Genaro V. Ong and other lay Filipino communicators. CFA’s mission, according to its website, is “To harness the power of communication in order to promote Christian values and empower people in need towards social transformation.”
The PCS especially congratulates its very own Dr. Hemmady S. Mora for being a Communication Excellence Awardee for Democracy and Social Accountability. Says Dr. Mora: "Thank you very much Communication Foundation for Asia (CFA) and the 2nd Lagerway Awards Committee for this COMMUNICATION EXCELLENCE AWARD for Democracy & Social Accountability! This award is dedicated to all the youth in Luzon, Visayas & Mindanao whom I have spoken to during our Scholastic Outreach for Voters' Education this 2021(8 Legs spearheaded by PPI)!
