On March 31, elegantly dressed young ladies, most of them wearing long
evening gowns, and young gentlemen in tuxedos gathered inside the Dusit
Resort. Mingling with the gathering were a number of older people whose
distinguished bearing identified them as professors. The candles that had to
be lit when the lights went down in a power outage only lent more atmosphere
to the proceedings.
Regentís School was celebrating its graduate party in great style.
Popular science professor Simeon Banks was the emcee, and he carried out his
duties with dignity and a lot of humor. Regentís School principal Mike
Wolton was the first speaker. He congratulated all high school graduates on
their successful completion and gave best wishes and advice for the future.
Other speakers, such as the owner of the school Dr Virachai Techavijit, and
Prof Stuart Tasker, Prof Dr John Baines and Prof Danielle Shepard joined in
wishing all the graduates their congratulations.
There was no prince and princess contest that is so often a feature of these
occasions, as it was considered that all the men were dashing and all of the
ladies were lovely. However, two of the young lady graduates were singled
out for special applause, as Steffi Floeth and Samantha Haeberli had
organized the event.
The evening was considered a great success, with even the professors
managing to shake a leg to the modern dance music, and the festivities going
on until late.
