Alumni Success Stories

Ashok Jhunjhunwala
When Ashok Jhunjhunwala ’77G, ’79 Ph.D. returned to the University of Maine in May to be honored by the alumni association, it would be logical to think it was for his outstanding career achievements in engineering. But even more impressive may be what Ashok has dedicated that outstanding career to—a better life for millions of poor, rural Indians.
