Inspiring Legacy Panel Empowers Grade 12 Students to Shape their Futures

Why is it so important to leave a lasting legacy behind? That was the question at the recent Legacy Panel event, where four distinguished speakers spoke to ACS Grade 12 students about the significance of building a legacy. The event fostered insightful discussions on building careers, cultivating connections and maintaining authenticity – all essential components in crafting legacies that endure for loved ones and future generations.

The panelists, each accomplished in their respective fields, brought a wealth of experience and wisdom to the discussion. Among them were: 

  • Eric Gaudiosi, Deputy Chief of Mission of the US Embassy in Abu Dhabi
  • Nada Prouty, global intelligence professional
  • Stephanie Rosenthal, Director of Guggenheim Abu Dhabi 
  • Pradeep Sharma, Director of Arts, Culture and Heritage at the Salama Bint Hamdan Al Nahyan Foundation

The Legacy Panel aimed to inspire ACS Grade 12 students as they navigate their future paths and prepare for graduation. The event couldn't have come at a more opportune time, with Grade 12 students in the midst of planning for their futures. As students approach graduation, the Legacy Panel prompted seniors to reflect on the legacies they aspire to leave behind in their personal and professional lives.

This event was made possible through the Excellence Fund, which helps ACS invest deeply in its people, places and programs – like the Legacy Panel and other such events that give students access to world-renowned expertise and opportunities for growth. 

ACS remains committed to providing opportunities for both professional and personal development, and the Legacy Panel is a testament to that commitment. ACS believes in equipping its students with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in today's ever-changing world.
