CabezonTWO THOMASIANS were feted by Rector Fr. Rolando de la Rosa, O.P. for their “sterling service” to the Thomasian community.

Former College of Nursing Regent Fr. Antonio Cabezon, O.P., and physician Antonia Raymundo, chairwoman of the laboratory department of the UST Hospital, were recognized during the Rector’s Report last September 8 at the Medicine Auditorium.

“The inspiring work of these two Thomasians is a potent reminder of the promise of Jesus to workers who honestly work in his vineyard,” De la Rosa said.

“Father Cabezon is best known as the ever-active and ever-present regent of the College of Nursing for many years,” said in the audio-visual presentation prepared for him.

Cabezon, who obtained his doctorate in sacred theology from UST, taught at the Ecclesiastical Faculties while being regent of Nursing. It was during his time as regent that the college became one of the leading nursing schools in the country.

RaymundoRaymundo, meanwhile, has been serving the University for 56 years. She studied and taught at the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery. She has been chairwoman of the UST Hospital laboratory since 1981.

“I’m overwhelmed [that] they recognized my continuous dedication,” said the 81-year-old Raymundo.

“They might not have become materially wealthy and famous, but you can see in their faces the contentment and the peace that comes from the knowledge of having served others in faith, in hope, and in love,” De la Rosa said. Kalaine Nikka Kay C. Grafil
