A wireless industry professional with 20+ years’ experience in the Telecommunications industry, including AT&T, Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia, Dev came to America 25 years ago for his M.S. and stayed. He grew up in Chennai right next to the Opportunity School and has known Kasthuri Devaraj personally over 35 years. He has seen first-hand the extraordinary and tireless work Kasthuri and her staff do at the Opportunity School, devotedly caring for the developmental, physical and emotional needs of ‘special needs’ children. The school is a unique refuge for these children, who are some of the most under-cared for and neglected in India. Dev has supported them financially over the years and visits the school during trips to India. Dev is honored to serve on SOSMC’s board to help accomplish its mission to raise funds for renovation of the school and orphanage building to provide these children with a loving and supportive environment. "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
