‘Come back… be here’: Singapore American School invites Taylor Swift to visit her mother’s alma mater

“I went to the same school as Taylor Swift’s mum (but) just 20 years later,” an alumnus wrote on Facebook.

“Well now we have to go to the big reunion next year because what if Taylor Swift’s mum goes and she goes with her?” another alumnus wrote.

Classmates who were in the same class as Mrs Swift in the late 1960s told ST they had fond memories of her.

Singaporean-American actress Julia Nickson, 65, said she last met Mrs Swift in Houston in early 1990s and remembered her as a “lovely friend” and a “kind and pleasant person”. She also saw Taylor Swift, who was then around two years old.

Ms Nickson told ST via Facebook: “I ran away once at nine years old and went right to Andrea’s house. Her mother Marjorie was so kind but of course they returned me home.”

The late Marjorie Finlay was Taylor Swift’s maternal grandmother, who inspired the singer’s emotional track Marjorie in her Evermore album.

Mrs Finlay was an opera singer and had performed in Singapore in 1968.

Ms Nancy MacIntyre, who was in the same fifth grade class as Mrs Swift, said she remembered hanging out with her at the black-and-white colonial bungalow of the latter’s family in the 1960s.
