“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
This was shared by Engr. William M. Noces, former scholar of the Department of Science and Technology 1 (DOST) under Republic Act 7687.
According to Engr. Noces, this served as his guiding belief in the challenges that confronted him throughout his life.
Raised in a simple lifestyle in his native town of Alipangpang, Pozorrubio, Pangasinan, Engr. Noces narrated the struggles of his family. “My father is a farmer. We are eight siblings and I am the only one who studied in college because of financial difficulties,” he said.
