Washington: The other three Indian-Americans are Hari Sreenivasan, anchor and senior correspondent, PBS NewsHour, Vikram Malhotra Chairman of the Americas, McKinsey and Company and Bharati Mukherjee National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author.
The annual award of the Carnegie Corporation would be presented to them at an event in New York on June 30, a statement said on Tuesday. For 2016, the Corporation named 42 honorees, who represent some 30 different countries of origin.“These accomplished Americans are immigrants like our forefathers, who founded this nation of nations,” said Vartan Gregorian, president of Carnegie Corporation of New York.
“They are representative of the millions of immigrants who have come to the United States for economic opportunity, education, political or religious asylum, security, or reunification with families and relatives. They, like all Americans, share a common faith in this country,” he said.
