Latha Srinivasan (AES Executive Assistant) is retiring the end of this school year after 31 years of service
to the school. Much of her time was in the high school office, with counselors and then with principals. She's been the Executive Assistant to the AES Director for the past 15 years. Whenever former teachers visits AES, they all want to say hello and have a photo with her. Hundreds of alumni remember her and have stopped in to say hello as well.

Much like we did for Alka Bajaj when she retired last summer, the
current AES Director would like to collect messages and photos with Latha to present at her retirement ceremony and celebration. He would also like to share a few messages verbally to her and the school's staff members. Please email your message (and include photos with Latha if you have any) to Mary, and we will send every-
thing to the Director.

PS-The intent - your messages - is supposed to be a surprise for Latha. She does not view Facebook much so we're hoping she doesn't see our posting there or on this website! If you talk or email Latha, please try not to mention this article to her. Thank you!!

Talk about a small world. My mother was born and grew up in the small town of Bellefontaine, Ohio. Sometime in the 1970's, or 80's, my mother got a letter from her niece saying, "We just got the nicest of Indian men to just become the Director of our country schools. His name is Raj Chopra." Who would have guessed that my coach in New Delhi, India, would briefly land in Bellefontaine, Ohio, during his life journey!" - Paul Ashby, Class of 1967

Last weekend, in Livermore, California, I
was able to bring the hugs and tributes of
so many of you AIS/AES alumni to the family and friends gathered to celebrate the amaz-
ing life of Jacquelin Luise Perottini Singh.

As students so many decades ago, we may never have thought of our teacher as having
a life beyond the Taj Barracks or the class-
rooms in Chanakyapuri. We can thank Mrs. Singh's children for sharing their most remarkable mother with us, when she helped
us feel at home in India.

Anne Beattie Kerr (AIS Class of 1967), who served as Treasurer of the AIS/AES Alumni Association, announced her retirement at the 2 March 2019 Board meeting. Anne was our longest-serving officer and will be fondly remembered for her hard work keeping our finances organized, her central role in several all-classes reunion planning, for helping facilitate the association and hosting the yearly alumni picnics at her beautiful home in Castleton, Virginia. We will greatly miss Anne's dedication to the association and her comradery during our board meetings and get-togethers.
