Three young performing artists from Pangasinan received commendations from the provincial board during their regular session on September 2.
Rea Mae Graham, Miyah Angela Dar and Jillian Kay Madison Fernandez harvested a gold medal in the contemporary dance category during the Asia Pacific Arts Festival 2019 held on August 17-19 in Singapore.
The Asia Pacific Arts Festival is a cultural exchange program, which is celebrated through performing arts competitions with the aim of promoting harmony, peace and global friendships.
Authored by Sangguniang Panlalawigan members Nestor D. Reyes and Von Mark R. Mendoz and co-authored by all members of the board, the approved Provincial Resolution No. 90-2019 states that, “the three young and talented Pangasinense ladies have amply demonstrated their skills in the said competition by connecting their minds and bodies through a combination of the different dance genre elements.”
The resolution also noted that the accomplishment of Graham, Dar and Fernandez in displaying a high level of performance in their expression of love for the arts is worthy of emulation among the other youths in the province.
Hence, it is but proper and fitting for the Sangguniang Panlalawigan to congratulate fellow Pangasinenses “for bringing admiration to the province and wishing them more success for a brighter future as artists,” the resolution stated.
Graham, Dar and Fernandez are performing arts students of Dominican School, Mother Goose Special Science High School and Ateneo High School, respectively.
