Mr. Hari N. Nath of Cary, N.C. was appointed Thursday to a six-year term on the State Board of Community Colleges by the North Carolina House of Representatives.  

 
Mr. Nath, a retired entrepreneur, received a master’s degree in industrial engineering from the University of Missouri and a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering from the University of Jodhpur in India. 
 
Mr. Nath previously served on the University of North Carolina Board of Governors and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Board of Trustees. 
 
“Hari brings a wealth of experience to the table,” said state House Speaker Tim Moore (R-Cleveland).  “His extensive background in higher education and entrepreneurship will serve our community college system well.” 
 
A successful businessman, Mr. Nath founded an IT consulting firm in Research Triangle Park in 1987 and was chosen as the “Small Business Person of the Year” by the U.S. Small Business Administration in 1994.
 
Since retiring in 2001, Mr. Nath has spent his time giving back to his community, currently serving as chairman of the board of advisors for a Cary-based non-profit that provides transitional housing for low-income citizens. 
 
Mr. Nath’s term on the 20-member board will begin on July 1, 2019 and extend through June 30, 2025.
North Carolina’s State Board of Community Colleges oversees 58 institutions in the third largest community college system in the country.
