The ACS alumni reunion tours for the 2016-17 school year kicked off this month in London and Doha. The school will host a number of reunions this year to introduce new Head of School Greg MacGilpin to ACS alumni.
The London event at the Savoy Hotel drew a big crowd of ACSers living in the United Kingdom (UK). Several alumni are currently living in the UK to obtain their Undergraduate, Masters, and PhD degrees. A large contingent are practicing law, and one is a professor of tax law at Oxford University. The oldest attendee was from the Class of 1964 and the youngest from the Class of 2016. ACS staff in attendance included Greg MacGilpin, Reine Youssef, and Danai El Hajj Ibrahim ’06.
“As a new member of the community and as the head of school, meeting alumni has provided me with the opportunity to see how the ACS experience resides now in their current lives,” shared MacGilpin. “The tours also allow me to share what we are working on right now on campus and what our hopes for ACS will be in the coming year.”
The Doha alumni event took place shortly after London, and marked the first ACS alumni gathering ever to be held in Qatar. Three Shaaban siblings represented the largest showing of family members at the get-together, and ACS staff in attendance included Greg MacGilpin, Phil Wendel, and Karim Abu-Haydar.
Special thanks to Samer Fleihan ’05 for coordinating the logistics of the event as the Qatar reunion agent.
