Harry Albright1. How long did you spend at Ecolint?
Eight years. 1967-75. I arrived in 3rd grade and stayed through 8th grade, repeating 4th grade.

2. How did you come to attend Ecolint in the first place?
I transferred in the 3rd grade from Geneva English School. We were in Geneva because my father worked for the UN

3. Which teacher had the biggest impact on you and how?
Mr. Barnett. I was in his 4th grade class for two years. He was a great teacher who was able to blend discipline with compassion and understanding.

4. What was your favourite spot on campus and why?

The Japanese cherry tree that was planted for my late sister Janet. Unfortunately it was removed to make way for the cafeteria and replaced by a new memorial at the top of the Greek Theatre.

5. What was your favourite place in the wider region, and why?

No particular favourite place. I enjoyed cycling in the countryside generally.

6. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I lived for a while in Canada and for the past 20 years I have lived in Melton Mowbray in the UK. With my wife I own a training company doing adult education.

7. What should be Ecolint's top priority as it approaches its 100th anniversary?

To continue its mission of bringing people from all cultures and backgrounds together in an excellent educational environment.

8. What "words of wisdom" would you pass on to today's Ecolint students?
Realise that what you are being offered is a very rare opportunity. Embrace the possibilities and the diversity that Ecolint offers.

9. What has been the biggest impact of your Ecolint education on your life?
Feeling at home in different cultures and realising that in diversity there is still a lot that can unite us.
