STAMFORD AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL


sasStamford American International School (Stamford American) hosted world record holder, Andy Stumpf, in a dialogue with students on his global fund-raising drive to raise USD 1 million for the Navy Seal Foundation. Mr. Stumpf addressed over 300 students as part of Stamford American’s Global Mentor Program.

The dialogue educated students on the values of teamwork, perseverance and achieving goals, detailing Mr. Stumpf’s bid to raise funds for the Navy SEAL Foundation, a charity fund benefitting the families of fallen American soldiers, by setting world records in a series of wingsuit jumps. Mr. Stumpf set his first world record, for the furthest absolute distance travelled in a wingsuit (a staggering 18.26 miles) demonstrating to students, through a question and answer session, what one can accomplish with the right mindset.

In Singapore to raise awareness of this campaign, Mr. Stumpf comments: “There is no magic formula to achieving your goal. My philosophy, that helped me get through military training, is that anything is as easy as setting out your tasks and thinking of the steps to get there. I encourage this young audience to find their passion and think and plan the steps that are required to achieve their goals.”

Stamford American’s Global Mentor Program gives students access to leading global figures in the fields of business, science, social enterprise, athletics and the arts to motivate them to excel in their chosen paths. Recent mentors include former military commander and CIA director General (Ret.) David H. Petraeus, winner of the 1996 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, Professor Sir James Mirrlees, 2010 Nobel Laureate for Chemistry, Professor Ei-Ichi Negishi, 2009 Nobel Laureate for Chemistry, Professor Ada E.Yonath and U.S. Olympic medalists Nathan Adrian and Jessica Hardy.
