A small group of TASIS alumni attended a cocktail reception in Madrid organized by Swiss Learning on March 15, 2011, but made a big impression thanks to Carla Arimont ’94. Always a prominent member of the TASIS community while she was a student (winner of the H. Miller Crist Award in 1994), Carla gave a speech which highlighted the positive effect her TASIS experience has had on her life, telling everyone that “as a product of TASIS, I have had a competitive advantage. Or, perhaps better said, a competitive privilege.” The full speech can be read in the Spring 2011 edition of TASIS Today. For the rest of the evening, Carla and the other Madrileno alumni enjoyed exchanging TASIS stories with each other and Bill Eichner, who represented TASIS at this event.
