Good News On 2 Fronts

Good News On Two Fronts

                                  GOOD NEWS
[A]  On the College Admissions Figh

  1.  Andrew Lam, 1 of 80-20 EF's 2  newest Board Members, was in the news front again.  A few weeks ago, he wrote an Op Ed in the New York Times, entitled                   
White Students' Unfair Advantage in Admissions 
         A few days ago, he was on Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Newshour.  To hearclick HERE.  

  2.  Wall Street Journal reported the following Gallup Poll findings:
       "7 in 10 people - including 76% of whites, 61% of Hispanics and 50 % of blacks - said colleges should admit applicants based 'solely on merit.'"
      Please forward the e-newsletter to your friends, YOU will be empowering yourself.
[B] An Empowering  
Move by the Indian Am. Community 

      NYT reported:  "Since Ian Grillot intervened in a shooting in February that left one Indian immigrant dead and another one wounded, Indian immigrants have rallied to help him in return. .... Mr. Grillot ran at a gunman and   ... was also shot.
India House Houston, a nonprofit organization, presented Mr. Grillot with $100,000, which it had raised to help him buy a home."  How appropriately and how nicely the Indian-Am community has served itself and the entire AsAm community.
