THE COLLABORATION BETWEEN AC MILAN AND TASIS CONTINUES
The American School in Switzerland and AC Milan together for young athletes also in the 2018/19 season
AC Milan and Tasis – The American School in Switzerland – have extended the collaboration agreement for the 2018/19 season. The kick-off of the activities is scheduled for September. TASIS, a partner that has represented for over 10 years a touchstone for the Rossoneri in Switzerland, was founded in Locarno in 1956 by Mrs Mary Christ Fleming, a dynamic, visionary and charismatic American woman, who established a school where the passion for excellence, respect and mutual understanding were the founding values.
Today, TASIS welcomes young people from all over the world in an educational community with more than 700 students from 65 different countries, pursuing its founder’s mission and offering cutting-edge school programs, with particular attention to the visual arts, service learning and sports programs.
The partnership with AC Milan, one of a kind, was born 10 years ago on the grounds of promoting both sporting and football activities and all those values like integrity, spirit of sacrifice, mutual help, respect for rules, ability to relate within a group and leadership within a truly professional context. Characteristics that TASIS and the red and black Club have conveyed to youngsters since the beginning so that they can become positive examples in our society. A heartfelt thank you to TASIS board, represented by Luca Ugolotti and Vincenzo Campanale, managers responsible for the project, who met Michele Lorusso, AC Milan Marketing and Sales B2C Director and Alessandro Gianni, AC Milan Academy Project Manager at Casa Milan to formalize the renewal of the collaboration.
