WS receives honorary doctorate in management from Holy Angel University

The Holy Angel University in Angeles City, Pampanga conferred on SGV Founder Wash SyCip (WS) an honorary degree, Doctor of Science in Management, during a special academic convocation. The university also presented him with the University Medal of Honor for his significant contributions to the accounting profession in the country. Archbishop of San Fernando and Chairman of the University Board of Trustees Most Rev. Paciano Aniceto, D.D., and Holy Angel University President Dr. Arlyn S. Villanueva conferred the award.

In his keynote address, WS urged Holy Angel University to take the lead in helping solve regional education problems and to take a more inclusive approach to teaching religion in the country. Capping his speech with humor, Wash remarked, “Are you not lowering your standards by giving this second award to a bookkeeper who is not even from Pampanga?”
