Today’s Special Occasion: The Ryder Cup

It's September 28, and the Ryder Cup is underway at Medinah Country Club in suburban Chicago.  This biennial golf competition features the best players from the United States and Europe, including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Luke Donald.  American School President Gary R. Masterton is serving as a marshal on the 16th hole Saturday and Sunday, so if you're watching the golf on television, keep an eye out for him.  You might just see the man who will sign your high school diploma!  At this time, students from 69 countries are working toward their accredited high school diploma with the help of the American School.  By contrast, the 24 golfers competing in the Ryder Cup represent probably no more than 10 countries.  The American School is proud to serve students all over the world, and much like the Ryder Cup page linked above, our enrollment page has separate sections and enrollment applications for students living in the United States and students living overseas.  Today would be a great time to tee off and begin your studies.  If you do, you'll have your American School diploma in hand by the time the Ryder Cup returns to the United States in 2016!
