Niranjan Shah, the former University of Illinois Board Chairman, has a welcome connection to McHenry County.
I’m told that former McHenry County College Trustee David Murphy of Cary initiated a $500,000 pledge from Shah to help purchase the college’s Shah Center in McHenry.
It is dedicated to his wife Patrima.
Pratima Shah prepares to cut the ribbon as her husband, Niranjan and members of the MCC Board of Trustees look on, including, L-R: Mr. David Murphy, former trustee; Ms. Donna Kurtz, board chair; Ms. Barbara Walters, and Mrs. Carol Larson.
Foundation Board Members with the Shahs: Bob Cormier Jr., Pratima and Niranjan Shah, Joseph Like, executive director; Sandra Pierce, Todd Bessey, and Monica Heydari.
With his wife, Pratima, at his side, Niranjan Shah introduces himself.
