Editor’s Note:

Saya U Min Wun taught Surveying in our 2nd BE class. Saya Dr. Aung Soe and team supervised the field assignments.
Saya played on the RIT Sayas soccer team.
Saya U Aung Soe, U Soe Thein and Saya K C Chiu (three sibling engineers) attended SPZP-2000.
Sayagadaw was a bit disappointed when memorabilia were handed out to RIT sayas and sayamas and not to office staff members.
