New Boys Town chairman is a Hindu

Catholic World News - May 09, 2011

Boys Town, the famous Nebraska institution founded by Father Edward Flanagan, has elected its first non-Catholic chairman of the board.

Rajive Johri, the new chairman, who was born in India and remains a Hindu, said that his selection shows "how mission-oriented Boys Town is." Until 2003, the Archbishop of Omaha was the chairman.
