Sixteen former and current students and staff of Brockwood came together in central New York City on Saturday April 2nd. Alumni came from all over the US, as far as California and as close as Manhattan. They wanted to reconnect with one thing they all shared: Brockwood people and their lives.
Back Row (from left to right): Arvind Pai (Rishi Valley alumnus and host), Jonathan Mitchell, Lauren Russell-Geskos, Eva Segou, Xana Vie, Sid Goyal, Joel Vall Thomas , Kara Taylor, Ajit Pai (Rishi Valley alumnus and host), George Matthews.
Front Two Rows (from left to right): Hugo Mahabir, Dana Jané, Veronique Rignault, Tyler Davis-Mayo, Olga Gonzalez, Carole Starkes, Leila Taylor, Bill Taylor.
The alumni who gathered met old friends, made new ones, shared stories and made future plans. The atmosphere was that of fun, genuine care and possible engagement for helping sustain Brockwood. The NYC event started at 3.00pm and finished around 7.00pm. Those who could stayed back and went for a meal together.
We would like to thank everyone who made it possible and especially alumna Lauren Russell Geskos for co-ordinating the event and Ajit Pai for the use of his beautiful apartment in central NYC. If you wanted to make it but couldn’t, we hope you will be able to come to a similar event in NYC next year; or elsewhere before then – cities and dates to be announced. Contact us if you would like to help organise a gathering in your area.
