As one of its founders, Thara’s association with the organization runs deep. While she “understands the greater responsibility that comes with the position, she accepts to serve the community and do her best to take the new role as President of HGH, along with a new admirable team of board members to build a harmonious successful year.”

A Houstonian since 1981, Thara isn’t new to leadership roles. She has served as President of Bharathi Kalai Manram- the Tamil cultural organization in Houston and the “Samskriti Society of Indian Performing Arts”.
