Sias’ Welcoming Candlelight Ceremony, 2013

Late on September 17, Sias’ Welcoming Candlelight Ceremony was held in the track & field stadium. Dr. Shawn Chen, the Chairman of the Board, lit the torch and passed it on to representatives of students from the four different grades.

 

Dr. Shawn Chen, Alan Brown - the President of the Sias Foundation, Paul Peter Rusnak, and Jack Gao, delivered speeches as well.

 

Among the performances, the beautiful "Carpet of Flowers" dance, the famous American musical "Cats", a passionate Chinese opera called "Red Guards", a Latin dance, songs including "Descendants of the Dragon", and a Tibetan dance, were a visual feast for the audience.
