In recognition of her outstanding achievements and meritorious contributions in the field of public service, governance, and legislation, the Board of Regents of the President Ramon Magsaysay State University (PRMSU) by virtue of BOR Resolution No. 1040, s. 2018, conferred the degree Doctor of Public Administration, honoris causa, to Hon. Cheryl Deloso-Montalla, Second District Representative of Zambales, at the Mid-Year Commencement Exercises, February 01, 2019, University Gymnasium.
Cong. Cheryl, as she is fondly called by her constituents, is the “Mother of PRMSU”. She is the principal author of Republic Act No. 11015 signed into a law on April 20, 2018 which renamed the Ramon Magsaysay Technological University (RMTU) into President Ramon Magsaysay State University (PRMSU). Aside from this, the Mother of PRMSU continues to work towards bringing improved quality of life to every Zambaleño and the Filipinos in general with her advocacies in human rights, education, ecology and natural resources, public order and safety, health and labor and employment which further justifies the high honor awarded to her.
