Congratulations to Denis Villorente (Main '84) who was one of four conferred the 2010 Gawad Career Executive Service (CES) award by President Noynoy Aquino on January 11, 2011 at the Rizal Hall, Malacanang Palace.

Gawad CES is a Presidential award that recognizes members in the CES for exemplary performance and significant contributions, particularly in the areas of innovation, information and communication technology, social services, administrative reforms and public policy. The 2010 awardees are: Patricio S. Faylon, CESO II and Executive Director of the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCARRD-DOST); Urdujah A. Tejada, CESO III and Regional Director of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Region II; Mario C. Villaverde, CESO I and Undersecretary of the Department of Health; and Denis F. Villorente, CESO III and Director of the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI) DOST.

Villorente was awarded for leading the continued growth and promotion of research networking in the country through the Philippine Research, Education and Government Information Network (PREGINET) that propelled several government agencies, including state universities and colleges, into the information age by providing them a platform to be connected to the internet and to have internet presence through the establishment of government websites; for promoting Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) technology and awareness enabling the country to become an integrated part of the global research committee; and for leading the technical team involved in the certification of the Smartmatic Corp for use in the May 2010 national elections which was instrumental in convincing the COMELEC that the automated election system was viable in the Philippines.
