It is with a sad heart I tell you I found out that Greg Anderson, Class of 1969 and a very good friend, has passed away. He was living in Wilmington, North Carolina, and died due to a
heart condition. I last saw Greg in September of 2013, in Wilmington, and had talked with him on the phone recently. He had a great sense of humor, had an easy smile, and was truly happy. I will miss him.

Obituary from Andrews Mortuary

Since 1971, this lovely woman has been welcoming students, parents, faculty, staff, and visitors to AES. She knows everyone and remembers everything! We asked Alka Bajaj how she came to find a job at AES. She told us she had worked elsewhere for four months after finishing her degree and heard about the job through an off-handed comment from someone she met briefly.. a few words, a mention in passing. After four interviews, a proficiency test, and a meeting with the director, she joined the school. And Alka's been here ever since. Waving to the ES kids as they pass by on their way to lunch, greeting former students and alumni with a hug and a memory, and answering the phones with a smile in her voice.

We believe that everyone flourishes in a community that is caring, collaborative and nurturing. One of the core values at AES.
