SMAA hosts Peter & Mary Hauet

Dear Alumni,

Thanks to Mary & Peter Hauet for taking time to visit Tokyo and St. Mary’s during their recent visit to Asia. Peter spoke to a group of students, parents, staff and alumni on Friday, Nov. 10, at St. Mary’s about the challenges of college admissions. The Hauets’ visit culminated in an Alumni gathering at the residence of Paul (’80) and Takako Kuo on Monday, Nov. 13, when over 50 alumni, staff, and families convened to welcome the Hauet duo back to Tokyo. Special thanks to the Kuo family for so generously opening their home for the visit.
