The event aimed to recognize a prominent MLQU alumnus who earned the distinction as a brilliant and respectable leader who is admired in the Philippine political history. Gov. Yap started his political career after passing the Philippine Bar exam in 1951 after finishing from MLQU School of Law in the same year.

The late congressman served for a year as Undersecretary of the Department of General Services in 1963 and became Deputy Governor of the Land Authority in 1964. He was then elected as the representative of the second district of Tarlac from 1965 to 1972. Gov. Yap served as the government's peace negotiator with the National Democratic Front and administrator of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS) during the administration of the late President Corazon Aquino. He was once again elected as congressman from 1987 to 1998. He then became a three-term governor of the Tarlac Province from 1998 to 2007 before being elected back to the congress. He also earned the award as One of the Most Outstanding Congressmen in the Philippines. The current Governor, Susan Yap, daughter of the late Jose Yap, received the recognition, together with her son, the elected Mayor of Victoria, Tarlac, Mayor Christian Yap. Present also was Vice Governor Carlito "Casada" David, also an MLQU alumnus of 1970. The event was graced by MLQUAAI Officers and Board of Directors including its Director, the former Justice Arturo Tuquero. The University was represented by its officials namely: Engr. Raul C. Asis (Vice President), Dr. Arnel C. Fajardo (Senior Assistant Vice President), Dr. Denisia Villaos (Assistant Vice President for Academic Affairs), Mrs. Rebecca Furagganan (Assistant Vice President for Administrative Affairs) and Prof. Jaron E.
