Watch the Remarkable TASIS Senior Banquet Speeches
Posted 05/28/2017 10:00AM

As is tradition at TASIS, students from the graduating class and their families gathered in the Palestra for a Senior Banquet on the eve of the School’s Commencement Ceremony, which was held on the morning of May 27, 2017.

Following cocktails on the MCF Piazza and a delicious meal—octopus carpaccio, avocado mousse, Lebanese tabbouleh quinoa with tofu, beef fillet with pomegranate sauce, fresh asparagus, and more—Headmaster Lyle Rigg took to the podium and delivered one of the finest speeches of his long and distinguished career at TASIS—a career that began at TASIS England in 1979, featured three separate stints as the TASIS Switzerland Headmaster, and will come to a close this June.

Mr. Rigg then turned the podium over to Master of Ceremonies John Gage ’17, who did an excellent job introducing each of this year’s Senior Speakers: Yigit Eyuboglu, Laura Vecoli, Gabriele Capacci, and Aida Loggiodice.

Following a musical interlude sung by Georgia Mantegazza ’17 and Margherita Vanini ’17 and accompanied by High School Music Director Samantha Forrest, 12th Grade Dean Peter Locke capped the evening with some poignant final remarks before inviting guests to the Monticello Terrace for strawberries and spumante.
