Cheers from fellow Dragons

According to Paz Santos, Center for Student Affairs head for sports, “Behind [the teams’] success is the all-out support of [members of percussions pep squad] Drumline, who have dedicated their weekends to watching and supporting our athletes in their games and in our pep rallies.”
The Drumline has been aiming to kindle school spirit and love for sports since they performed a pep rally for the varsities last November.
