The 2019-2020 school year is our 25th anniversary and we’ve been hearing from many former teachers and students. I was curious at the start of this school year to find out where the first graduate of the school. Sarvar Bobojanov is living now. Sarvar was a scholarship student in the first years of the school. He was the lone graduate in the Class of 1998 because the other 4 classmates in his grade, left the school in grade 10 and 11. He was the only one left at TIS in the 1997-1998 school year. As the first graduate, he garnered one entire page for himself in the yearbook (see photo above). Sarvar is pictured in the courtyard of the second campus of TIS. We rented some classrooms with a local school at 23 Chekov Street from 1995 – 1998.
It was delightful to find Sarvar through a quick internet search. He is living here in Tashkent and is a successful director of a juice and dairy product business. I invited him to come by and visit our school. He was last on our campus when he spoke to the graduating class of 2005.
