Spotlight on :
Regrettably , one of the events that had to be postponed due to the pandemic was the alumni reunion in the spring . It is traditionally one of the most fun things we ’ re looking forward to , not just the alumni , especially those with anniversaries , but also their teachers who get to see their favorite students as grown-ups .
To join the community in spirit , the Classes of 2000 , 2005 , 2010 and 2015 held a fundraising challenge where the class with the twentieth anniversary aimed to collect 20 leva from each member , the class with the fifteenth anniversary 15 leva from each , the class celebrating their tenth anniversary 10 leva from each , and the one with fifth anniversary aimed to collect 5 leva from each member .
Most active was the Class of 2010 . Led by the inimitable Georgi Klissurski , they added a Facebook photo mystery challenge where members of the class tried to guess the spot on campus from details of photos , and shared memories related to that spot .
Kudos to you , Class of 2010 , and to everyone who participated ! We are looking forward to welcoming you back on campus as early as possible !
