Suzanne Bakey Fricke (AIS Class of 1972), Corresponding Secretary of the AIS/AES Alumni Association since 2003, announced her retirement effective August 14, 2019. She served as the 1972 Class Secretary before joining the Board of Directors and was responsible for locating many '70's and alumni from other classes over the years. Her cheerful enthusiasm and event planning skills helped us to successfully host three of the largest all-classes reunions in our association's history.
Suzanne is married to Robert (Bob) Fricke, (AIS Class of 1969); and they have two daughters, Samantha and Rachel, who both volunteered in the past as reunion-helpers, and two grandchildren, Kara and Mike. You may remember Samantha at the Registration Desk and as the Honorary Duck Boat captain during the last reunion!

GREETINGS FROM MALTA
posted 14 August 2019
My name is Jurgen Vantroyen (AES Class of 1994), and I attended the American Embassy School from 1986 to 1990 in the middle school. I have fond memories of my time in India and at the school. My sister Tamara Vantroyen was in high school at the time. Such a beautiful and good school that AES is and I am proud to have attended such a wonderful institution, a jewel
I moved from India to Mozambique where my dad became Belgian Ambassador and there I attended the American International School
of Mozambique before going on to college in the States. Now I live
on the Mediterranean island of Malta. I thought of getting in touch
with the school to bring back some of those fond memories and to reconnect with my classmates and friends who were there the same time as me.

We are a non-profit organization, which exists to keep our AIS/AES Community together and to help promote reunions and other activities. We also host our all-school AIS/AES Reunions every five years, where all alumni (whether they graduated from our school or not), faculty, staff and family members are invited.
We appreciate any contribution, in the form of “dues,” to help support our board admini-

ments for our reunions.
We suggest a small donation of $25 per calendar year; how-
ever, we are grateful for any contribution. Help us keep connected!
Convenient Ways to Donate
The theme for the AIS/AES Alumni Association’s 2015 Reunion, “India Lives in All
of Us,” captured the spirit of alumni who lived at one time
in New Delhi and attended the
American Embassy School (formerly the American International School). Shortly after the success of the 2015 Reunion and the admiration of
its theme lingered on, the Board voted unanimously to adopt the theme as the association motto.
