As our school matures, so do our alumni. This year we have more alumni than ever doing exciting things, as you will see from the many articles in this issue. Three alumni-related articles that particularly stand out are King’s 101, a tongue-in-cheek alumni-produced video series about King’s Guiding Principles, featuring Ahmed Khalayleh ’15 and Aviselle Diaz ’15 (page 4); With Camera in Hand, written by Suhayb Jawhari ’11 about his relationship and work with Rob Bahou ’11 (page 36); and Alumni for Justice in Palestine, in which Dario Pomar ’19 interviews various alumni about their university activism (page 12). Other special alumni stories include the growing phenomenon of alumni appreciation of their alma mater through generous giving. Make sure you read the articles about Abdallah Abu Sheikh ’12 (page 30) and Ali Shajrawi ’11 (page 11).
This year we are bidding farewell to various pillars among our teachers and administrators (page 40). We wish them well as they move on from King’s, and hope they know that their legacy lives on.
As King’s nears its 15th anniversary, we also look to the future. Head of School Peter Nilsson writes about the strategic priorities for King’s in the coming years (page 8), while Chairman of the Board Ali Kolaghassi tells us about the role of the board in ensuring a continued bright future for our beloved school (page 22).
These are just a few of the highlights. Turn the pages for much, much more.
