Yet another first was added to the Thomasian Alumni history as the very first general assembly of the Tomasinong Batangueño Chapter was held last June 4, 2016 at the Mesa de Lipeños Restaurant in Lipa, Batangas. There to grace the event was the Assistant Director of the Office of Alumni Relations, Asst. Prof. Cherry Tanodra, who gave an inspiring speech of how UST OAR envisions the different provincial chapters of the UST Alumni.
Fr. Allen de Guzman who was a Dominican Batangueño moderated the event while the Perce Sisters, Teresita and Rosalina, worked hard on the registration and documentation of the proceedings. Among the attendees are Music professor Tonton Africa and the alumni realton specialist Dr. Benny Atienza, who both also attended the general assembly in UST last month. An achievement was made during the event as the impassioned Thomasian Batangueños were able to form an ad hoc core team to lead the chapter and its planned activities Fr. Nonie Dolor was made the interim president while representatives for the different cities of Lipa, Cuenca, San Juan and Batangas were able to give their valued commitments.
