In Issue 21 we are reading about life after the College and the exciting projects of Tsvetan Iliev ’06, memories from the pre-war years by Sava Savchev ’44, and reflections on what ACS is like today from Joana Nikolova, who recently joined the alumni community with the Class of 2019. We are revisiting their Commencement ceremony with Dena Popova’s ’06 address. We are remembering together Birgitta Cattelle and we are indirectly attending the huge ACS wedding of Krasi Tomov ’05 and Julia Masleva Tomova ’06. We find out what Kosta Karakashyan ’14 and Lora Beltcheva ’15 have been up to, as well as where ELL teacher (2015-17) Isabel Norwood is nowadays. Happy reading!
