Last in the line-up of performers, alumna Sherene Melania
(Class of 2000) and Norberto Martínez performed “Hungarian
Dance” from the ballet Swan Lake.
After the three performances, Coyote introduced Phil
Bronstein, the Board Chair of the Center for Investigative
Research, who moderated a discussion about technology
and innovation. The panel featured former French American
parents, investor Michael Moritz and Logitech CEO and Board
Chairman Guerrino De Luca; along with filmmaker Tiffany
Shlain and anti-money laundering specialist Moyara Ruehsen.
The night’s presentations were interspersed with
testimonials from former Board Chair Allan Basbaum, alumni
Amy Munz, Manoel Felciano and Emily Lowry, and former
Head of School, Bernard Ivaldi, who spoke to the school’s
founding principles: respectively, a global perspective,
academic rigor, diversity, critical thinking and communicating
across cultures. For her part, Jane Camblin underscored that
while the tools with which we deliver the principles set forth
by our far-sighted founders may change, these pillars have
withstood the test of time and are here to stay.
Along with former Head of School Bernard Ivaldi, our
guests of honor included none other than the Founding Head
of the French American Bilingual School, Jeannette Rouger,
who flew into town from Paris to toast the next 50 years!
