RECTOR Fr. Rolando de la Rosa, O.P. honored the Salinggawi Dance Troupe and the Yellow Jackets with a testimonial dinner at the Central Seminary Gym last September 27 for their third-place finish in this year’s UAAP cheerdance competition.

“We are so proud (of you). All the priests enjoy watching you. Every time you perform, you give us a very beautiful memory to look back on,” Rector said in his speech.

As a reward, the dance troupe was placed under the Rector’s office so it could be “really taken care of,” especially on the occasion of the school’s quadricentennial, according to De la Rosa.

The Rector said he was considering more practice hours for Salinggawi members to better prepare them for competitions.
