The Philippine Information Agency (PIA) 02 named Dr. Lovella Gamponia-Velasco, faculty member of the College of Arts and Sciences in NVSU Bambang, as one of its top ten women achievers of 2018 during the 7th IDDU Honor Roles Award for Women on July 11, 2018 at Hotel Carmelita, Tuguegarao City, Cagayan. 

According to PIA, Velasco was recognized for her passion in promoting local literature and vernacular writings in Nueva Vizcaya. It can be remembered that in January 2017, Velasco was presented the Gawad Julian Cruz Balmaseda 2017 award by the Komisyon ng Wikang Filipino for her dissertation entitled "Ubbug ti Asin: Kuwento at Kuwenta ng mga Babaeng Mannurat." 

Together with Velasco who received the "love" award were: Dr. Nelia Z. Cauilan, Rose Mary G. Aquino, Maria Cristina Opeña, Dinky M. Lim, Dolorita T. Olpindo, Sgt. Louella R. Alibania, Mayor Crispina Agcaoili, Hon. Resurreccion T. Ponce, and Dr. Milagros C. Morales.

This is the seventh consecutive year that the PIA bestowed the 'iddu' award to deserving women in various fields of specialization who played significant roles in the lives of their fellow women and continue to do their share in the local and national developments.

"Iddu" is an Ibanag term which means "loved one or beloved" and is used to suggest that the award originated in the Premier Ibanag City of the North, Tuguegarao.
