Other News

Hagar Catering is looking to provide a breakfast option for our students in the mornings. They are currently finalizing the details of this and will have more information shortly.

We had a surprise visit from Phlong Sopheaktra, a former East-West student, who is completing a degree in Business Administration at Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia. Playing basketball is one of his fondest memories of his time at East-West. Jeff Kane enjoyed taking him on a school tour and showing him how much we’ve grown since. We wish him the best of luck with his studies and success in the future.
