A New Friend and Supporter for Meher
Thomas Parrish, shown above with his teacher Maggie Gruber and chess teacher GM Yury Shulman, is a chess student from Barrington, IL. He fund-raised for Meher already as part of the initiative through Chess Without Borders, chose to support Meher by asking for donations towards her education instead of gifts at her birthday party. The United States Chess Federation published an article about Thomas's efforts.
