I have attached a piece my father, Jack H. Adamson, wrote after our year in India. This was at the request of the Fulbright Foundation who had funded his year as a visiting professor at the University of Delhi.
For his service, he was awarded a prize as "Fulbright Scholar of the Year". I posted it on the AIS/AES website when I first joined up several years ago, but I thought I would do so again because I am certain it would trigger memories for many who will be coming together this week (for the AIS/AES 2015 Reunion) and as well for those who cannot join us. - John Adamson (Class of 1969)

I am currently living in Silver Spring, Maryland with my husband, 10-year old daughter and mother, Daulat Husain, (who was also a science teacher and Board member at AES in the 1970's). Since 2011, I have been working in Washington DC for US SIF: The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investment, the US association of professionals engaged in sustainable, responsible and impact investing (SRI). Prior to that, I worked at an investment firm doing socially responsible investing and also went to law school.
AES was one of the most wonderful times of my life and where I met some wonderful people! I left AES for the US in 1980-81. Feel free to get in touch.

I'm thinking of the AIS/AES 2015 Reunion next month. Thought this photo might interest some folks. it's me holding up an ink drawing made by former student, John Blee, (Class of 1966) almost 50 years ago! I schlepped it all the way from Chandigarh to Dublin, California, last October, because I always liked it so much. If I remember correctly it was a design for our erstwhile literary magazine at AIS called "Focus."

Not to be outdone by the DC crowd with their periodic get-togethers, we, in Tokyo, are making an effort to promote school spirit here, too. Not too many members yet but we'll get there.

An amazing day at AES.
A very thoughtful ceremony to celebrate my mom, Peggy Sood's, retirement from the school after 30 years.
In honor of her commitment to the school, the elementary school library will now be called The Sood Library.
The plaque inside the library reads: Educator, Colleague, and Friend. 30 years of dedication, caring, and service to the Elementary School.
At the bottom of the plaque is a silhouette of the famous Banyan Tree, one of the most iconic symbols of our school.

My nephew Ashton Wilson (son of Jini Campbell Wilson, Class of 1977, and Malcolm Wilson, Class of 1974)) is leading a relief team to Nepal next week; and they are crowd-sourcing funding through the following link. He will go directly to affected villages in Central Nepal. I am sure they will appreciate support.

(Editor's Note: A Sangeet is more or less a big party thrown the night before the wedding day.)

All for Akinori Niimi and Yuiko! #Punjabisushi

2015_Mona Al-Essa Tiedemann Receiving Award

I recently returned from Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) where the President presented me a medal for my service to his country at the inauguration ceremony of a bridge.

Attached is a photo of me shaking hands with the President of Cote D'Ivoire at the ceremony. I love my medal because it was not only for the country's recognition for the work I did for the bridge, but it was also for all the projects I have done in their country that touched me the most. The President himself thanked me, and I was the only woman standing in a line of men. It made me proud to be a woman and to show that women are just as capable as men.

Ken Torbett in India, Oct 2014

This is a photo of me with friends at the Taj Mahal on my trip to India this past October.
The placard I am holding is from the Foundation my wife, Debbie, and a friend formed before Debbie passed to help women with ovarian cancer. To date we
have helped over 200 women with ovarian cancer, and the number continues to grow! It's one of my favorite pics from my trip!
