MC Pres. Macaayong conferred the degree to Chairman Ramirez for his contribution to the Mindanao Sports for Peace movement.

“I am humbled at the privilege of esteem being bestowed on me today with this conferment of a Doctor of Humanities Honoris Causa by this prestigious and respected educational institution. I thank Pres. Macaayong and the whole Mindanao State University for recognizing our efforts and contributions to the university and the Mindanao Sports for Peace movement,” said Ramirez in his acceptance speech.
In July 2017, just two months after the siege in Marawi, the PSC aided more than 300 displaced children in Brgy. Buru-un in Iligan City, to conduct the PSC’s UNESCO-recognized project, the Children’s Games. The following year, the agency came back and brought the program inside MSU to more than 500 children from all over the city.
