Ms. Rattana Lao BAS Class of 2005 A recipient of the Anandamahidol Scholarship year 2006 Ph.D Candidate in Comparative and International Education (Political Science) Teachers College, Columbia University, New York City Thank You BAS! I am always thankful for supports the BAS Program has given to its students. Amongst many, my friends and I were supported to found the Thammasat Speakers Union (TSU), an English Debate Club. From a humble beginning, we created what has become the biggest National English Debate Championship in Thailand, known as the EU-Thailand.? Beyond school, BAS has created the space for lasting friendship. The uniqueness of BAS friends and their growing successes provide me with much needed inspiration to excel. To BAS, thank you!
