SLTCFI Celebrates its 15th Foundation Day

Southern Luzon Technological College Foundation Inc. (SLTCFI) celebrated its 15th foundation anniversary in conjunction with the school’s Intramurals from September 1-3, 2009. The event commenced with a motorcade at 8:00 A.M. starting from Embarcadero de Legazpi grounds passing through the main streets of Legazpi City, Daraga and Albay and ending at Albay Astrodome.

Employees from the BPO Incubation Center of SLTCFI in Embarcadero also joined in the motorcade.

The event was followed by the cheer dance competition held at Albay Astrodome which also marks the start of the inter-campus Intramurals.

Spectators are awed by the participants’ execution of dance routines in their remarkable cheering attires while doing refreshing and electric moves to the tune of the latest dance hits.

There were eight competing teams during the intramurals – four teams from SL Legazpi City main campus and another four teams representing all the other SL branches, to wit, Anislag, Pilar, Pio Duran and Tiwi.

Adding a dash of glitz and glamour to the momentous event was the search for Mr. and Ms. SLTCFI.

Candidates competed for the best in production attire, best in uniform, best in swimwear and evening wear, the Mr. & Ms. IT, the Mr. & Ms. Intrams, and the much coveted Mr. & Ms. SLTCFI.

The production outfits donned by the candidates were nothing short of marvelous with the dazzling attires that exude majesty and fantasy as they depicted the gods and goddesses in Philippine folklore.

The candidates also modeled in their uniforms.

Among the most applauded part of the pageant was the swimwear competition where it heats up the competition even more.

The audience was also given an additional treat of being able to witness the candidates walk the stage in their gorgeous evening wear.

The candidates’ wit and intelligence were tested during the interview portion as hard to answer questions that command the best answers are always on the way to the title.

The auspicious three-day event is instrumental not just in fostering camaraderie between competing teams but it also served to unite and tighten the bond of all students from the various SLTCFI branches. This year has been a remarkable event in SLTCFI history as this was the year that three other SLTCFI branches were established and all of them actively participated in the school’s various events.
