The live segment of TDTAN attended by
honorees via Zoom.
TDTAN was founded by the
then USTAAI President Dr. Robert C. Sy during the Rectorship of Rev. Fr.
Rolando de la Rosa, O.P. in 2009 to gather all prominent graduates and
associate alumni of the university to drumbeat the Quadricentennial celebration
in 2011. The success of the event has motivated the associations to continue
commemorating its alumni every year to showcase them to younger generations of
Thomasians to be their inspiration and role models.
