History never really says goodbye. History says, ‘See you later.’ - Eduardo Galeano Ms. Hillary Towle, faculty of English, returned to the US last Saturday. A farewell program was organized on 10th June, Friday by the Music Club in collaboration with the other clubs for Ms. Hilary Towle.

Umang Gurung ’17 sang “Fast Car” by Tracy Chapman with Suyog Shrestha ’19 on the guitar. Anmol Shrestha ’17 sang a self-composed song dedicated to Ms. Hillary. The musical performances made the event exciting. Then, Ms. Hillary was showered with gifts. The Artistas gifted a beautifully designed postcard filled with pictures and messages for Ms. Hilary. Prabina Neupane ’16 presented Ms. Hillary with a scrapbook containing messages written by the students. Nikita Gautam ’17 personally gifted a sketch of Ms. Hilary which was very beautiful.
