UPDATE FROM ALUMNI MELISSA MILLER

ALOT HAS HAPPENED! I lived in India from 1960-62 and attended
the old Taj school while there. Since I last posted anything many
years ago, a lot has happened to me. I turned 71 this past April;
my sister Melinda (AIS Class of 1965) passed away in 2017; and
I have a boyfriend of four years. I moved to Pleasant Hill, Caifornia,
in 2013; I wrote a book about my life overseas; and I live in an apartment for older people. I am very happy and content.
-Melissa Miller (AIS Class of 1967)

WANTED: SENIOR PHOTOS

Great suggestion from Eric Hols (AES Class of 1976)

TRIBUTE TO SUNIL MAHAJAN

It has been a week since we
received the very sudden and
sad news about Sunil Maha-
jan's
(AIS Class of 1974) death.
His sister, Anju Mahajan Narang
(AES Class of 1978), received a beautiful tribute to Sunil from his college friends--all whom lovingly nicknamed him "Woody." Anju obtained permission from Sunil's
college friends to share their TRIBUTE to this great man with his AIS/AES Family. Rest in peace, Sunil.
