REMEMBERING OUR FRIENDS

In Memory - Vince Wayhan ('78)

It is with sadness we share the news of the premature passing of our friend and fellow CAC alumnus Vince Wayhan (graduate, '78) on Thursday, May 1, 2014. Vince was involved in choir, weightlifting, and was on the CAC boys softball team. He was also in a rock band with a few classmates that would play at school dances, etc. called "The Nothing Band."

Vince was married for 22 years, but because of all of his medical issues, and nearly 50 surgeries throughout his life, he was unable to have children. Instead he doted on and spoiled his nieces, nephews, and pets. He was a business development manager for Kellogg, Brown, and Root, and was a standout employee for them, earning many accolades.

His sister, Venecia Wayhan Davis, also wrote: "My brother Vince went to be with the Lord on Thursday. He faced one medical problem after another, starting on the day he was born, but he never complained a day in his life. He was the best person I knew on planet earth, and was a shining example of how to endure physical pain, disappointment, and sorrow with a positive attitude, and a cheerful disposition."

Memories and condolences may be shared by email with the family through Venecia Davis: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In Memory - Susan Stevenson ('58-'59)

SUSAN KINGSBURY (ALLEN) STEVENSON (1948-2014)
Susan Kingsbury Stevenson (nee Allen) (former student, '58-'59) died from metastatic breast cancer on August 29 in Nelson, BC, leaving behind her husband of 41 years, David Stevenson; her sons Samuel and Peter Stevenson; her grandson Effie Stevenson; and her sister Marjorie Russell.

As a forest wildlife biologist living in Prince George, BC, she conducted lichen growth studies that provided information for better management of caribou habitat. Her scope expanded to focus on the unique features of British Columbia’s interior temperate rain forest. In addition to working as an independent consultant both with the provincial government and with the BC logging industry, she was an adjunct professor at the University of Northern British Columbia in the Ecosystems Science and Management program. As a consulting biologist, Susan played an instrumental role in bringing together faculty, students, industry, and other community partners in joint research and education projects. She served as a member on many graduate student advisory committees, taught in a variety of UNBC courses, and was the recent co-author of the UBC Press book British Columbia's Inland Rain-forest - Ecology, Conservation, and Management. Her work with the B.C. Association of Professional Biologists played an important role in developing standards of professional practice and introducing students to career possibilities as wildlife biologists.

In Memory - Aida Nasr ('87)

Aida Nasr was the first to work as Alumni Association Coordinator when it was first established in 1987 by former superintendent Mrs. Barbara Johnson, who was also a former teacher and high school principal prior to that. Aida attended CAC from 7th grade to graduation in 1987.

Tribute submitted by Sherine Abdelbaki (graduate, '87)

"Saturday Nov 8th, I lost one of my closest friends, Aida Nasr....It was sudden and shocking, but it was her time. She was always a friendly, kind-hearted soul, caring and loving of others, especially children and elderly people, and giving in the quietest and simplest of ways... very considerate and thoughtful. Aida would either have something kind to say or nothing at all. Everyone who knew her couldn't agree more. She was a reader and writer, and her career was in editing and publishing. As she was an English literature major and appreciated the written word, I could not think of anything better to use here than this quote about friendship by her favorite character, Winnie the Pooh:

In Memory - Diane Scott (Parent of Alumni, '88, '90)

Former CAC Board member Diane Scott (parent of alumni, '88, '90) died October 17, 2013 after a brave four- year battle with cancer.  Diane Scott and her family lived in Maadi from 1979 to early 1986.  She was elected to the Board of Directors of Cairo American College (CAC) in 1982 and served through 1984.  During her tenure in Maadi, Diane tutored non-native English speaking expatriates, many of whom went on to be admitted to CAC.

Diane gave generously of her time to the Maadi community. She was an active member of the Maadi Women’s Guild which did fundraising for poor communities in and around Maadi.   One major event of the Guild was the annual Christmas Bazaar held on the CAC campus.  The Bazaar was a major event that raised thousands of dollars for various benevolent uses.  She was active in the Community Services Association that provided support to the expatriate community in Maadi.  Diane and her family were active in the Maadi Community Church.
