Speaking at the ceremony, Nalanda College Principal Thilak Waththuhewa said the college has a history of producing noble sons who serve the country in the highest ranks of office and that Air Marshal Sumangala Dias, who had excelled in sports, studies and extracurricular activities whilst at school and who has reached the highest position in the Air Force, is a source of pride and inspiration to his alma mater.

Air Marshal Dias, acknowledged that his achievements were a direct result of the solid foundation laid at his beloved Nalanda College.
