Cong. Greg lauds Doc Weng


BACOLOD CITY – Bacolod Lone District Cong. Greg G. Gasataya praised Bacolod-based academic Rowena Bañes for winning the best paper title in an international research conference in Istanbul, Turkey.

“She is not only both a source of pride for the city and the country but also an inspiration for academics and intellectuals as well,” Gasataya told DNX.

The solon, whose past campaign platforms have been based mainly on education, hopes Doc Weng can serve as an inspiration for youth and students to pursue intellectual development.


“The pursuit of knowledge and intellectual development is noble, that is what Doc Weng has shown,” Gasataya added.

Bañes, who holds a doctorate in psychology, is dean of the College of Arts and Sciences of the University of St. La Salle.

Her paper on international students bested hundreds of other entries during the Innovative Trends in Multidisciplinary Academic Research (ITMAR 2019) in Istanbul, Turkey.
