After more than six decades of combined service to YIS, longtime faculty members Junko Cancemi and Dennis Stanworth will be retiring at the end of this school year. Junko, who joined the school in 1986, has led the development of the YIS ELC into one of the most respected early learning centers in the region. Dennis has served as math teacher, high school principal and head of academics during his 37-year tenure at YIS, and has also ushered hundreds of YIS alumni across the high school graduation stage as master of ceremonies.

We cordially invite the extended YIS community, including alumni and former staff, to a special concert and reception to celebrate Dennis' and Junko's long service and many contributions to the school. Alumni performers Chris Gibson '05 and Kazuki Doi '17 will play a varied program in the auditorium including pieces by Chopin, Brahms and Bach. This will be followed by a reception with drinks and light food to be held outside the ELC if the weather is fine or in the auditorium in case of rain.

Admission is free of charge, however we do ask you to RSVP via this online signup link by May 31st so that we may get an idea of numbers for seating and catering. If you are not able to attend but would like to send a message to be shared with Junko and/or Dennis, you may also use the RSVP form linked above to send us the message.
