More than 100 alumni and friends joined the TASIS team for an all-class reunion in New York City on the evening of Friday, November 16. The cocktail and hors d'oeuvres reception was held in the rooftop room of The Yale Club with beautiful views from its wraparound terrace. Luckily the snow storm and chaotic travel conditions of the day before cleared up rapidly so that only those who had a longer journey from New Jersey or upstate New York were prevented from joining in the fun.
Every decade was represented in the guest list—including alumni from the earliest years of the school, summer alumni and summer staff, former faculty, and representatives of Fleming College Florence as well as the TASIS Cyprus and TASIS France communities—and guests had a chance to chat with Chairman of the TASIS Board of Directors Lynn Fleming Aeschliman '63, Director of Institutional Advancement Bill Eichner, and Associate Director of Development and Alumni Relations Yvonne Procyk. It was a wonderfully eclectic celebration of Mrs. Fleming’s family of schools! The class of 2005 was especially well-represented, having decided to use the all-class reunion as an excuse to get together in the Big Apple. The TASIS crew was especially delighted to hear people chatting and planning other reunions for 2019 and beyond!
Also in attendance was highly successful fashion designer Emily Bode PG ’08, who was recently named a runner-up for the prestigious CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund and earned a prize of $150,000. Her menswear brand Bode is in its second year and has drawn praise for “its sustainable practices and focus on craft.”
