Mrs. Sonja Bata Celebrating Her Birthday Today

Today, on 8 November 2017, Mrs. Sonja Bata, member of the TBU Board of Governors, celebrates her 91st birthday. It is our delight, on behalf of TBU, to extend congratulations on the occasion of her birthday to Mrs. Bata, wishing her good health and lots of energy and inspiration to continue cooperation with our University.

Mrs. Sonja Bata and her husband had been encouraging the idea of establishing the University in Zlín from the very beginning. After the unexpected death of her husband in 2008, she replaced him as a member of the Board of Governors, and, in 2012, she was awarded the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa at TBU in recognition of her contribution to the establishment and development of TBU and to the promotion of the University abroad.
