With ACS Egham International School celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, it brought back nostalgic memories for many of us at the school. For Andrew Kittell, Director of Corporate Relations for ACS International Schools North American office he was reminded of Candace, one of the first students to attend ACS Egham. Here Andrew shares Candace’s story:
Back in 1995, in the first Admissions Office of an about-to-open ACS Egham International School, I met Lu Ann Rubenstein. An American expatriate mother, who was trying to find the perfect educational setting for her two daughters. Eventually the family settled in Ascot, Berkshire and the girls enjoyed five wonderful years with ACS.
From that first meeting until this day, I’ve kept in touch with all the Rubensteins. But it’s with their second daughter, then Candy and now Candace, that I feel a particular bond. This is our story, one that begins with Candace recounting her time growing up in England and ends now 20 years later with the two of us again living near each other.
