"Xīnnián hǎo!" or "Happy New Year!" was the common refrain as long-time friends of the Institute gathered at a Monterey restaurant to celebrate the Chinese New Year and to meet this year's Stilwell Scholarship recipients, Zhang Zhuoyi and Li Yanming.
The residence of Samira Rahmatullah and Munir Alam (Midd’99) in Hillsborough served as a lovely backdrop for a casual salon gathering of 20. The evening was energized with conversations surrounding the Frontier Market Scouts program and multiple cross connections were discovered.
Michelle Mitchell (MBA ‘95) and her husband, Jonathan Mitchell, opened their Beverly Hills home to MIIS and Middlebury alumni and friends interested in learning more about the Frontier Market Scouts (FMS) program. Forty individuals attended the September 12, 2012 event, which featured MIIS students, faculty, and leadership.
