Club Member Rohan Paul Will Give Program On ‘The Indomitability of the Human Spirit”

Rohan Paul will present a program on The Indomitability of the Human Spirit: The Story of the Thenpallipatu Refugee Camp” at our Aug. 19th meeting.

Rohan Paul

Rohan, a Dilworth South End member, said his change in career focus has allowed him to spend more time with service projects. Friday Rohan will be 9054talking about one of those projects, the building of a well for the Thenpallipatu Sri Lankan refugee camp near the town of Tiruvannamalai. But in building the well, Rohan discovered the story of the Thenpallipatu refugees – and he will tell their story.

Rohan was born in Mumbai, India. As his father worked for a multinational company, he had the opportunity to live in India, Trinidad and Tobago, the Netherlands, and London.

After graduating from Princeton with a degree in economics, he worked in management consulting, followed by an MBA from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Rohan then joined JP Morgan in New York as an Investment banker covering the global metals sector. He then continued that practice in Charlotte for Wachovia/Wells Securities, adding chemicals to his metals practice.

He has recently started his own advisory consulting practice working with some of his former clients.

Dilworthians, Team Read Members, Pair
With Students to Read Books They Chose

Team Read

Ten Dilworthians and seven teenage volunteers read to kindergarten students at the Team Read event at Sugar Creek Charter School this past Friday.

Each paired up with one or more students to read the books they had chosen at the beginning of the session. The Team Read interns had brought in enough age appropriate books for each student to choose three. We could tell they were thrilled to get their books.

Dilworthians who paired with the students were Lamar Gunter, Rosemary Hill, Glenn Hines, David Hodgkins, Rohan Paul, Tom Philson, Ranjit Rawlley, Angie Rikard, Joy Rucker, and Ret Turner. J. T. Simpson, a prospective member, also read with a student.

Team Read interns who read with the students were: Ameena Kapadia, Elianna Franklin, Matthew Hines (Glenn’s son), Gabby Howard, Tracy (Shreyasi) Anand, Alyssa Sharma and Julianna Rennie, team leader for the event.

After the class ended, Dilworthians were given a tour of the facility, a converted WalMart store.

Club members who were unable to attend missed a rewarding experience.
