The class of 2023 donned caps and gowns this past Sunday for their graduation ceremony at the Shanghai International Dance Center. Joined by their friends, family, and even our favorite alumna Betty Barr, who has attended almost every single SAS graduation for as long as we can remember, these grads accepted their diploma and their new status as SAS alums.
But as these grads walked off the stage, we knew they were carrying far more than a diploma. They were also carrying with them the passion to be lifelong learners, the ability to live with integrity and compassion, and the confidence and courage to pursue their dreams.
The celebration didn’t stop after the ceremony, though. Thanks to the generosity from the Ye/Xu family, who themselves are a multi-generational SAS family, a congratulatory message on the Citigroup building on the Bund dedicated to this year’s graduates lit up the night sky. The message ran throughout the night and created the perfect photo backdrop.
Congratulations Pudong and Puxi class of 2023! We look forward to your next chapter in life.
CAPS. EVERY DAY AT SAS.
