“It’s hard to overstate how my eleven years at SFS shaped me as a person, and continues to loom in my psyche. I couldn't feel more honored by this award, given my fond memories of Seoul Foreign School and what I know about the impressive achievements of its alumni.” Ken Jennings was named Alumnus of the Year for 2021.

Geo Kim ‘20 - Student Alumni Award Recipient

"As a Economics and Political Science major at the University of Chicago, I am forever grateful to SFS and its amazing faculty for fueling my intellectual curiosity in these fields is what led me to dream a future of studying economics at the U of C, which was the very birthplace of this world-renowned economic theory and home to 13 Nobel Laureates. At SFS, academic excellence is not just about getting good grades, but also about making a difference in our local and global communities. I am interested in Political Science because of my involvement in student leadership at SFS; this community has provided me with so many opportunities to lead and serve."

"SFS fostered a strong work ethic in me, which prepared me extremely well for college. It was the first school I went to that offered so many different classes as well as extracurricular options to choose from - this was a huge gift and something I have never forgotten."

David Tarlow ‘92, Executive Director - Treasury Sales Group Manager at JPMorgan Chase & Co.
