Mary Williamson


Mary Flanagan Williamson, Class of 1974

Mary joined the Board in September 2006, having held the positions of Recording Secretary and Vice President before becoming President on 30 January 2011. She attended AIS from 1971-1973, along with her younger sister. Prior to that, Mary and her family lived in Calcutta, India, where she and her sister attended the American International School of Calcutta (AISC) for four years. Their mother worked for the US Department of State.
Although serving many years prior in an unofficial capacity, in 2005, Mary became the association's first "official" alumni secretary for her Class of 1974; and in 2007, she hosted her class' first-ever reunion weekend in Philadelphia. In 2009, she built (and still manages) the AIS/AES Alumni Class Secretaries Program. In 2013, she created the association's page on Facebook and continues to administrate it...and is also editor of the association's website.
After serving 31 years in the military, living and traveling all over the world, Mary and her husband retired on 1 November 2013 from the Air Force and have semi-settled in the Arlington, Virginia, area where they will live until they permanently retire. They have four children.

Both Anne's siblings attended AIS - sister Amanda (Class of 1972) and brother Jeff (Class of 1962). Anne is now living in the Washington, DC area with her husband, Ed Rykowski, who she met at the ACSA swimming pool in 1972. They have two children, also both in the Washington, DC area. She works for Information, Inc., headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, with no sign of retirement in the future.
