Second to None! Region 1!

That is our Region 1 chant. When we attend National Conferences like NILA or the SHPE Conference, each Region has a chant. So, this is how it works.
Leader: Second to none!
Everyone: Region 1!!
We repeat this a total of three (3) times, and there you have the Region 1 Chant!
So, say it loud and proud!
