We are proud to be a truly global alumni community. The green dots on this world map show AAS alumni who have recently logged into our alumni portal or read our latest newsletter.
I will always remember my first visit to the Hall of Flags at AAS. It was 2016, I was working at another school in Moscow and came to visit AAS to connect with Rita Ehrman, the AAS Communications Director at the time. I was hooked the moment those international flags appeared high above me. It felt like being transported into a top-tier Canadian or U.S. university that drew strength from the diversity and experience of its community. Each member of the AAS Community greeted me with a warm smile and friendly words and I could sense the supportive, joyful, and curious culture of the school. It was instantly clear that AAS Moscow was a community that one would be lucky to call his/her own.
As I continue to learn more about our school’s rich history, my respect continues to grow for those who experienced AAS Moscow in earlier times. Moscow was not always as easy and pleasant to navigate and the courage of our students, staff, and parents over the last 70+ years continues to inspire me. In recent years, the AAS Community Relations team looked for ways that allow our former and current students, staff, and parents to easily connect with each other to exchange ideas, experiences and to support each other. I am pleased that we now have over 750 active alumni portal profiles that include former students from every decade and many more staff members that contributed so much to our AAS community.
My deepest respect and gratitude goes to the 38 alumni community members who indicated on their alumni profiles a willingness to be mentors for our high school students and recent graduates. It was amazing to hear success stories from recent graduates who connected with alumni mentors to learn more about specific universities and careers. Thank you for taking the time to give back to those who follow in your footsteps through life and learning at AAS Moscow.
AAS Community Relations team commits to providing connection and growth opportunities to members of the AAS Moscow community.
