So long, Kevin!

May 24, 2011 1 comment

Kevin has recently graduated with his Master’s in Aerospace Engineering, and will be returning to Singapore.

He has been very active in the UM go club: he was our Vice President, helped organize the 2010 tournament and has attended our meetings regularly. He’s an enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable player, and we’ll definitely miss him.

We got him a cake, though the problem on it might have been a little below his level.
