1989, Sigma Rho 50th Anniversary
The Sigma Rho Fraternity was organized by some twelve idealistic junior law students of the UP College of Law at Padre Faura St., Manila. Attracted by its laudable objectives, especially in the field of scholarship, the cream of the UP Law studentry joined up and were initiated into the Fraternity. Among them were law freshmen students like Jovito R. Salonga, Pedro L. Yap and Manuel Montecillo who later topped the 1944, 1946, and 1949 bar examinations, respectively.
