Khin Maung U / Khin Maung Oo

For archive (Updated on February 26, 2019)

There is no standard way of representing Burmese names in English. “U” and “Oo” are spelling variants.

(1) Dr. Khin Maung U (SPHS 63, IM1 70) stood first in Burma in the Matriculation examination. He had perfect scores of 100 in Mathematics and Chemistry and a score of 99 in Physics. Grapevine says that one point was deducted from the initial score. He was selected as “Lu Ye Chun” multiple times. Due to changes in the Education System, he had to do his Masters locally. His persistence paid off in getting Fellowships from UK and Australia and an MD. He retired earlier this year from FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in the USA. He volunteered as translator/interpreter for dhamma courses and meditation retreats.

He wore thick glasses since his younger days. Young Khin Maung U can be seen standing from left in the second last row in the photo taken in Std. VIII(A) at SPHS.

(2) U Khin Maung Oo (Ivan, M69) did his MS in the USA. He completed two PEs (one for New York and another for New Jersey). He is a successful entrepreneur. He is a multiple Golden Sponsor for SPZPs. He hosted annual gatherings at his New Jersey home for RIT and UCC Alumni (with Sayagyi Dr. Aung Gyi and Saya U Soe Paing as Honored Guests). See my earlier updates for the details.

(3) U Khin Maung Oo (Robert, EC66) lives in North Carolina.

(4) U Khin Maung Oo (PBRS, Master Mariner) taught in Burma and Malaysia. He lives in Houston. He is helping the Burmese sea men visiting the Houston port.
