In the final weeks leading up to Graduation Day 2020, EAB will celebrate each of its Seniors via the Senior Spotlight. Though many of the Senior Traditions cannot happen this year, the High School Faculty is committed to making sure each member of the Class of 2020 knows how much they have meant to this school and how proud we are of them. Today, the Senior in the spotlight is Huat Hee Chiang.
Huat has been a proud member of the EAB Community since arriving on campus in tenth grade. In his time at EAB, Huat has many good memories, his favorite of which was "a time where my physics friends and I got trapped in the physics room because the door handle broke. We felt like zoo animals as teachers and students alike took turns looking in through the tiny window on the door." Naturally a quiet person, in reflecting on his time at EAB, Huat is most proud that he has become more outspoken. Huat will miss hanging out with his friends. He would especially like to thank his parents, teachers, and counselor.
Huat's teachers commented on his commitment to and determination for academic excellence, with his chemistry teacher noting, "Huat has been a quiet powerhouse...He always strives to do his best and does not give up. He is motivated, clever, and creative. When tough situations have made him struggle, he has worked to make it better." Another teacher echoed this, stating, "Learn, study, revise, fail, study, revise, improve, study, revise, achieve. This is Huat's mantra. He never gave up." This teacher went on to comment on Huat's personality and the way in which it contributed to class, "His goodwill, cheer, and ability to motivate us all when times were tough is something I will always remember. Thank you for your kindness and care and the respect you have always shown for our work." His BSS teacher noted his commitment to extracurricular activities, recalling a wonderful BSBMUN performance and commenting on his talent in golf.
EAB will miss Huat's quiet confidence, as well as his grit and commitment to excellence. We wish him all the best in what we know will be a bright future!
