A VISIT FROM THE US AMBASSADOR AND THE DEPUTY US AMBASSADOR
St. George International School & Preschool had the opportunity to welcome the US Ambassador Mr. Eric Rubin and the Deputy US Ambassador Mr. Justin P. Friedman. Our American guests' visit started with a tour of the facilities during which Mrs.Peneva and Mr.Kilcullen-Nichols managed to demonstrate our amazing sports and educational complex. Mr. Rubin was pleased to share that he wished he had the opportunity to study in a school with such contemporary sports facilities and a strong faculty when he was younger. After a short break in our outstanding event hall where our guests admired the breathtaking view to Vitosha mountain, Mr. Rubin met the secondary and high school student body and their teachers in the school theatre. The children had various questions to Mr.Rubin. They enquired about the diplomat's career, the mutual support between the USA and Bulgaria, the challenges of the new communication technologies and the cybersecurity of the western world. The children wanted to know what the American University Education can offer to them and whether they have good chances for an Ivy League University to which the US Ambassador responded with a compliment about the level of their English and various interests vivid by their intelligent questions.
We are sincerely grateful for the polite visit of the US Ambassador and his delegation!
