Hall Tutor and later Warden
U Aung Myaing (ChE72) joined the Faculty and served as a Hall Tutor in Inle Hall.
From around end 1986 until he resigned from RIT as a chemical engineering lecturer mid 1991, U Aung Myaing served as an Warden of Inle hall.
His family — Daw Gyn Yu (ChE72) and their two children Min Yu Aung and Hnin Yu Aung — have fond memories of the beloved sayas such as Sayagyi U Ba Toke, Saya U Hla Myint and Saya U Lay Aung.
U Aung Myaing remembers taking his toddler to the ChE Department, since he had to supervise some students. The milk bottle ran out, so one his students tried to get milk from “Nway Aye“.
YTU Library Modernization
The children did not attend RIT, but they followed their parents’ footsteps to became engineers in Thailand and US.
U Aung Myaing preferred the term “YTU Library Modernization” to “YTU Library Upgrading”.
He requested his former sayas and colleagues world wide to help with the project.
Saya U Maung Maung (George, ChE66) responded by providing the seed money and US$500 and helping raise the fund to $3000+ (for the Library Training Component).
His two grown up children — now engineers — decided to join their father’s noble mission and donate 300,000 Kyats for the project.
Kudos to the family for their metta and cetana.
Special thanks to the indefatigable WHO, who dreams RIT dreams almost every night.
