The Sheths make major book donation to Georgia schoolsThe Sheths make major book donation to Georgia schools
Dr. Jagdish Sheth, being a professor of marketing at Emory University, is naturally interested in education. He and Mrs. Madhu Sheth have made a major donation of copies of two multi-award-winning books on India to schools in Georgia: 1,645 copies of Robert Arnett’s Finders Keepers? to elementary and middle schools, and 843 copies of Arnett’s India Unveiled to middle and high schools. In all, 159 counties and 21 school districts were covered. For such a generous donation, DeKalb County, in particular, has asked Dr. Sheth to speak to administrators and principals to present the books, as well as to speak to teacher-librarians.
Since school districts do not have adequate funds to purchase books on every ethnic group of America's melting pot, the Atman Press and the Indian American Education Foundation (IAEF) of Seattle, WA have partnered to make available these two multi-award-winning books on India for donation to schools as well as to public libraries and community centers. The Indian-American community has stepped up to the plate in many states, not the least in Georgia, through the generosity of the Sheths. This effort not only shares the beauty of Indian culture and combats misinformation, it also increases pride in our children for Indian culture and provides a means to share it with their peers.
