The Board of Directors is excited to introduce the new Association President, Katherine Arens (AES Class of 1979). Katherine joined the board as a Director in April 2017 and became Recording Secretary in October 2018 before being elected as President. When asked how she felt about her new role, she replied: "It is a bittersweet moment in the life of the AIS/AES Alumni Association. Retired President, Mary Williamson, was a dynamic, actively-engaged leader and an inspiration to this association and me personally. I look forward to working with the association board and getting to know you all. If you are interested in working with us, let me know! If you have ideas about the 2021 Reunion - or you want to join the Reunion Committee - let us know! We'd love to hear from you."

Katherine T. Arens After attending the 2015 Reunion, Katherine was excited to join the Board of Directors. When asked, she immedi-
ately agreed to become the Recording Secretary and to help alumni remain in contact and strengthen the bonds that we all share. She said India was quite an experience for all of us.

Currently, Katherine lives and works about 50 miles south of Wash-
ington, DC, for a great marketing firm in Tysons, Virginia, and works mostly from home where she is supervised by Olivander Snicker-
doodle, her trusty yellow lab. She loves to paint, mostly in oils and enjoys ceramics and now resin work.

"It's the human connection, the love and friendships that keep us united. it's the treasured memories and the opportunity to reconnect."

Please join us in extending best wishes to Mary Flanagan Williamson (AIS Class of 1974), on her retirement as President of the AIS/AES Alumni Association Board of Directors, effective Novem-
ber 1, 2019. Mary joined the board in 2005 and
held the positions of Recording Secretary and
Vice President before she was elected Association President in January 2011.

Mary attended AIS from 1971-1973; her mother's work with the US Department of State brought them to India. Prior to New Delhi, Mary and her family lived in Calcutta (now Kolkata), India, where she and her sisters attended the American International School of Calcutta (AISC) for four years.

Always a very active alumna, Mary served many years as her class secretary as a way to locate and keep in touch with classmates.
Read more of Mary's accomplishments while serving on the Board, before and after becoming President.

The book that we are going to
be presenting to the School
when we visit them in a few weeks is done. It's got a range
of fascinating stories and lots
of photos of the good old days. We could not have done this without the help of Celia Murphy ('79) and, of course, without the photos from Taka Yamanouchi
('70) and Tim Brown ('70), who thoroughly documented our lives at the time.
For those of you who submitted photos with your stories, we were not able to use all of them due to pixilation problems, so we apologize for that. The book is published by Mixbook. (You will have to create an account with MixBook) While it is expensive on its own without a 50% sale, it's more reachable if you go on the site daily and wait for a 50% discount at the top band of the site. If you order as a group of 10, the price goes down even further. You can view/order the book with this link. Otherwise, please click here if you'd like just the stories. We
hope you will enjoy this labor of love!

BIG Exciting NEWS!

Please help us welcome Claire Saint-Rossy (Class
of 1975) as our new Board Treasurer. Claire attend-
ed AIS from January 1965 through June 1968, along
with two older sisters and a younger brother, dur-
ing the period when their father worked with the United Nations - UNESCO took their family to New Delhi. "I am amazed when recalling the rich exposure to Indian religious and cultural sites that I got through the myriad field trips planned for us by AIS's elementary school teachers - what great teachers they were."
Claire moved to metro DC before the 2015 reunion, which made it possible for her to reconnect with a handful of old friends who attended. Now she is able to visit with close friends with some reg-
ularity. We are lucky to have her on our board and feel confident
that our fiduciary responsibility to the association will be fulfilled. Welcome aboard, Claire!

The theme for the AIS/AES Alumni Associations 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.
