President Emeritus and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of John B. Lacson Foundation Maritime University, Dr. Mary Lou L. Arcelo was bestowed the Juran Award by the Philippines Society for Quality (PSQ).
The prominent award is for the recognition of persons who have enormous contributions for the outstanding application of effective quality management.
The Juran Award is in the honor of Dr. Joseph M. Juran, who was the first to incorporate the human aspect of quality management which is referred to as Total Quality Management and made many significant contributions to the field of quality management worldwide.
