Dear KES Family:
I have been off campus this week and had a delightful two days in Vancouver before flying to Hong Kong (where I am now). Meeting up with alumni in Vancouver was fun. The energy, the stories, and the passion that graduates of the School have for KES is really energizing. All of them are doing wonderful things and despite the generational differences there are striking similarities: Taylor Wade '10 finished her Chemistry degree last year and is studying for her MCATs but won't write them until she returns from Ethiopia as part of an Athletes in Action mission trip. Former Head Girl Jenny Cho is on the Board of a Foundation doing transformative service work in Uganda - she is heading over there again soon. It was terrific seeing everyone. A very special thank-you goes out to David Bursey who hosted us at Earl's Restaurant (he works at Earl's head office in purchasing) and provided AAA steaks that he had aged in his own refrigerator at home for 70 days. They were mouth-wateringly delicious and tender! Best ever.
