John Kim hasn’t forgotten the generosity that helped bring him to the United States from South Korea decades ago. And he’s returning it in a big way.
Kim, president of New York Life Insurance Co., have donated $1 million to help students from Hartford attend UConn School of Business, where he received his master’s degree in business administration nearly 30 years ago.
“If it wasn’t for a family who sponsored us, my family could not have come to the United States,” Kim said. “We never forgot about that. This is our way of paying it forward.”
