University of the Pacific has been given a generous donation to help sustain the annual High School Math Competition and its mission to challenge local high school students and enhance their critical thinking and math skills.
The donation was made by the parents of a young Stockton man, Avinash Raina, who as a Stagg High School student had exceptional math skills. Avinash was a gifted student who believed math skills were critical to our everyday living. He not only excelled at math, but had a passion for speech and journalism. Avinash was never able to realize his many professional ambitions, because at 19 he was diagnosed with tongue cancer. Avinash succumbed to the disease in less than two years.

Always found it fascinating how different people interacted with Avi during his time at Williams College.
Would like to share a great foundation working toward better access to developmental drugs for cancer patients.
We are excited to be relaunching our foundation site once more!
