Foundation Update - Appreciation and Accomplishments

Winding down to the year’s end, the Foundation office is as busy as ever. Martin Hahn, Endowment Officer and I will be heading to Hyderabad in mid March for a Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) seminar. The Class of 1982 has spearheaded a new KIS merit award in memory of Ashok Kamte. The Foundation office has been working with the Class of 1982 on the details of the award and the appeal will soon be sent to KIS Alumni.
