In loving memory...

It is with great sadness that the CSBC and SWJN honor the passing of our friend, colleague, and adjudicator, Frank De La Rosa. Frank always put his friends and the pageantry arts activity first. Frank loved every student he taught, admired every team he worked with and gave constantly to every person he knew. His quick wit and infectious laugh will not soon be forgotten. Frank loved his two children with all his heart and no conversation ever ended without him talking about them. His contributions as an adjudicator to the CSBC will never be forgotten.

Frank De La Rosa, was born on August 29, 1970, in San Antonio, Texas, and passed away December 15, 2017. He was laid to rest December 27, 2017 at Forest Lawn, Cypress, CA.

Please keep the De La Rosa family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
