Who says only students have the guts to show off when it comes to singing and dancing? After four years, St. Paul University Dumaguete (SPUD) brings back the Employees’ Night dubbed as “Beats of the Century” last October 27, 2018 where teachers and staff have prepared performances to also showcase their talents featuring the hits from 2002 to 2016 at the Fr. Louis Chauvet Hall.
The audience was hyped by the performance presented by the teachers and staff from different departments as they embraced the stage to showcase their talent. The first performance was from the teachers of Junior High School bringing back on stage the hits of 2002 as they showed how talented they are in dancing. The second performance was given by the Grade School teachers as they also gracefully danced on stage to the hits of 2004. Following them were the Senior High School teachers who danced to the hits of 2006. The teachers of the College of Arts and Education (CAED) add a new taste to the event as they showcased the rhythms of 2008 through singing. The office staff gave the audience a glimpse of 2010’s hits while the Lay Administrators brought the audience back to 2014. And lastly, the teachers from the College of Business and Information Technology (CBIT) presented the hits and beats of 2016 to 2018 and even presented a poem featuring the life and struggle of being a teacher by Mrs. Cristina Jumawan and Mr. Vedasto Bolongaita. It moved the hearts of the audience and made the students feel grateful for having teachers like them. After all the presentation, it has been decided to give a surprise award for the best performer of the night. All the performances were great but there will always be the best among them. It was the Junior High School teachers’ performance that the audience enjoyed watching.
The night didn^^t end there as they gave another surprise to the audience. They invited a surprise celebrity guest from Manila, Mr. Dezhnev Jake Diaz, one of the vocalists of Manila^^s J2U Boyband, a young actor, singer, professional host, broadcaster, performer, and PAGCOR^^s resident artist. He performed two songs that made the crowd sing along with him.
Generally, the event was a success as the audience enjoyed each performance and everyone got out from the hall with bright smiles on their faces. SPUD’s teachers and staff are all talented indeed.
