First, someone let me know if I misunderstand the following, per MGoBoard FAQ:
* Anything Michigan sports related
* Anything related to other Big Ten teams or upcoming opponents
* Stuff about the blog itself
* University of Michigan topics that don't relate to sports
This is old news, but I didn't find anything here per site search. I just saw this in NRI Pulse (Atlanta, GA-area Indian expatriot rag) today.
Rajiv Shah, UM grad, was nominated to be chief of USAID on 11-10-09, and confirmed on 12-24-09, making him the highest-ranking Indian-American ever in the US government. He is currently spearheading the US response to the Haiti earthquake.
His additional degrees are an MS from Wharton School of Business (U-Penn) and an MD from U-Penn Medical School, plus time at the London School of Economics.
