Local college gets mini-bus from IRRI

IRRI donated its Mitsubishi coaster to the Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU) to help the school with its mobility needs especially when doing field trips and community visits under its agricultural extension program.

In a turnover ceremony held on 23 October 2013 held at IRRI headquarters, Nestor de Vera, LSPU president, received the key to the coaster/minibus from V. Bruce J. Tolentino, deputy director general for communication and partnerships at IRRI.

Dr. de Vera, on behalf of the university, thanked IRRI for the donated vehicle, which he said will also be used as a school service for its Los BaƱos campus.

LSPU started as a provincial high school and became an agricultural and vocational school in the 1950s. It now has four campuses in the province with specializations in agricultural technology, engineering and mechatronics, fisheries and marine technology, and electronics

  1. Right! So that's why we're now being serviced by the Toyota Coasters.
